Newark RISE

Newark Rotary Club Bulletin

Thank you to Fred for taking minutes in my absence. Any mistakes or faulty information - CALL FRED!

Jean Bendix brought her Mother, Mary Martin. Maureen Hallagan joined us to listen to her step daughter and our speaker Susannah Hallagan. Visiting again were Tracy Crosby and Sulyiman on Zoom.

Lucina Hallagan gave an inspirational prayer with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.

Compliments of MaryJo Fenyn

What did the traffic light say to the car?
Don’t look - I’m about to change!
What do you get from a forgetful cow?
Milk of Amnesia
Compliments of the Legion magazine

I mailed a Valentine’s Day card and my tax return at the same time.  Now I can’t remember which one I signed “Guess who? XOXO”.
Gary Reilly is one of the few “newspaper readers” left and at his age he always checks the Obituaries first to see if he is listed!

Here is a joke from Bert Butler of Irondequoit that recently passed.
A man goes into a restaurant and sits down.  The waitress comes to his table and he asks her, “Do you have frogs legs?”
She answers “Yes”
He exclaims, “Great!  Hop into the kitchen and get me a chicken sandwich”
Burt’s description sounds a lot like Gary!  He always has a joke ready.  “Anyone that ever had the pleasure of going out to eat with him will surely remember seeing him wander the restaurant looking for an audience to impart his latest joke”.

A reminder - pick up Chicken & Biscuit dinners by 1:30 on February 21st.

The Diversity committee will help with the Clean-up in April.

Alicia Vasquez is asking for a $10 donation from each member next week as they participate in the word unscramble contest.

$420 was given to Laurel House in memory of Chelle VanLaeken.

Jim Weiller announced that on Thursday evening at the AECC the Newark-Arcadia Historical Society featured Sharon SanAngelo in their 2021 Winter Lecture Series. Sharon is the author of “They brought Tarnished Secrets”.

Fred Hicks reminded Rotarians that on February 12th we celebrate the birthday’s of Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin who were born, not only on the same day but in the same year.

If I had been at the meeting I would have told you we also celebrated Fred’s second Covid vaccine on February 12!!

Doug Forgue with a good news tax tip - Stimulus checks are non- taxable!

Bob Bendix announced that their daughter has finished her film.

Suzannah is the daughter of our own Walt Hallagan.  She works for Mastercard and talked to the club about how to take care of their digital life.  The average person spends 40 minutes a day on Facebook where they want to have meaningful conversations - a great advertising  platform. Everyone should be concerned about privacy. Under Settings you can clean your digital ads and Keep Bugs Out!

And some heavy Humor
