Good afternoon, Fellow Rotarians,
Happy Tuesday, and I hope all had a great Father’s Day weekend.  Thanks to those who attended our meeting last week, where we recognized our Scholarship Winner, Heather Gonyea, and where we heard from Rindge resident, Taylor Ratcliffe, and her presentation about her weekly column in the Monadnock-Ledger Transcript.  
We will meet at Franklin Pierce University for our weekly Breakfast Meeting on Thursday, June 23rd, at 7:15am.  However, we will be in the lower level of the cafeteria (make a right down the hallway past the coffee station) instead of going to the back room in which we usually find ourselves.  
Gavel Night will be at Peter and Jinnie Russell's home in Jaffrey at 4 Gilson Road on Thursday, June 30th, at 5:30pm.  After hosting Gavel Night for many years, Peter will become our new President.  As one of President Ben's last last duties, he will induct our newest Rotarian, Tom Frazier.  As always, a scrumptious feast is planned, catered by our own Stephanie Porter.  Bring your spouse or significant other.  This is a BYOB event. 
Have a great week, and I hope to see you all on Thursday
Yours in service,
From the Photographer's camera from our last meeting...
