Hi, Fellow Rotarians,
Our next meeting of the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club will be held at the Cathedral of the Pines on Thursday, June 20th, at 7:15am. 
Our speaker for this week will be Rotarian Katherine Richards, a member of the Keene Elm City Rotary Club. She is working to obtain grants to support a Rwandan community by providing genocide widows with an income opportunity.
We will be meeting at the Jaffrey Fire Department for breakfast at a date to be announced. The firefighters make a darn good breakfast, as evidenced by the spread they put on when they host their annual Fire Prevention Week breakfast in October.  Bring your appetite!
Gavel Night is fast approaching, and will start at 5:30pm on June 27th at the Cathedral of the Pines. John and I look forward to everyone's attendance, but we need a headcount.  Please RSVP your intentions, including those of spouses/significant others, to Co-President Bill at so that we can plan ample food, as we pass the gavel over to Rudra and several new board members. 
Good to host Moritz, as well as our District Governor, David Saturley, and Jim Rumrill, our District Youth Exchange Chairman, both of whom came to listen to Moritz share his experiences as a Rotary Youth Exchange student for ten months while in the United States. We bade a fond farewell to Moritz, as he returns to Germany on July 6th.
Yours in service,
Bill and John

Moritz's Final Presentation Before Returning Home to Germany
Moritz Neddermeier addressed the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club at our June 13th meeting, sharing his experiences and pictures taken during his ten months in the United States, as a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the Federal Republic of Germany.   We wish you well on your return to Germany on July 6th, Moritz -- thank you for everything!
District Governor David Saturley and Moritz
The camera caught DG David Saturley and Moritz chatting before the meeting.
Jim Rumrill, District 7870 Youth Exchange Chairperson
Jim Rumrill heads up the District 7870 Youth Exchange Program, which this year hosted several students from all over the world, including Moritz and about eight other teenagers who attended local high schools in Vermont and New Hampshire.  Jim thanked the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club for their sponsorship of Moritz.
District Governor David Saturley Visits Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club
Never was it known that a District Governor would pass up an opportunity to "say a few words."   David did just that, however after only a few minutes, deferring to hand the microphone to Moritz for his presentation.  Along with Jim Rumrill, Youth Exchange chairperson, both are ardent supporters of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program, and came to our meeting to hear Moritz speak.
Thomas Ahlborn-Hsu and Dr. Marc Winiecki -- Prospective Rotarians
(Top) Thomas Ahlborn-Hsu (L) will be inducted, along with Christine Bergeron (not shown), as our newest Rotarians at Gavel Night. We caught Thomas chatting with Past President Peter Russell before the meeting got underway.   (Bottom) Dr. Marc Winiecki, who just opened up his own practice in Jaffrey, came to our Rotary meeting as a guest of Rotarian Jim Banghart (R) to learn more about Rotary.  
The Mad Hatter?
When it comes to headgear, no one can do it better than our own Rotarian Sam LaFortune, who has a unique set of hats for each week when she fulfills her duties to ensure our Happy Fines coffers are kept full.  She does a great job!
Co-President John McCarthy -- The Joys of Technology!
John McCarthy wrestles with the laptop and projector for Moritz's presentation.  A loose cable caused some heartburn, but John resolved the problem.
Two Davis Brothers and Gail
Good to see "Dave" Davis (L) at our morning meeting, along with his brother, Peter (R).  That's Gail Therriault in the middle; she does a yeoman's job of keeping attendance records.  Rotarians can go into our ClubRunner site to see what percentage of our meetings they attend each year.  Thank you, Gail!
