Our Speaker today is Dr. Tom Wieckowski, speaking about John Wanamaker - Gilded Age Citizen and Resident.
1. RoJ President John DiBenedetto attended the District 7450 President Elect training session last Friday and Saturday. He found it extremely informative and inspiring. There are a lot of Rotarians doing what we do and far more. From that experience his is organizing a Community Needs Analysis Study. He will host a meeting of community leaders from the Municipal, Business and Religious sectors. If anyone is interested on participating, please contact President John.
2. The Navaho Indian Solar Project is proceeding very well. RoJ is Partnering with the Rotary Club of Durango Colorado (Chip Huntoon's club). To date, our contribution has provided 5 Photovoltaic systems for 5 homes. If anyone is interested in additional information on this program, see Chuck Huntoon or President John.
3. The next Breakfast Satellite meeting is March 2nd at 7:45 am at Joey Tate's. The next Evening Satellite meeting is March 9th at 5 pm at Bernie's. See the Rotary Calendar for all times and places.
