This Week...
The Pledge was led by Steve Lore, and John Woodall led our Invocation. Elliott Turner gave us our inspirational moment.

Shery Dewane had a guest with her, Charles Sherman.

PP Chris Bradford brought two guests, Bonnie Bianco and special guest Jeanine Horowitz.

The head table included PP Ron Lyster, Marsha Hunt, Steve Lore, President Shawn, Mark Rogo, and our speaker, Bart Forman of Engineers Without Borders. Ron Lyster mentioned that Uni High has an Interact Club. Mark Rogo informed us that Americans are not spending money as we used to.

Guest speaker Bart Forman told us about Engineers Without Borders, which is responsible for creative and poignant projects, the type that the world expects of Rotary. Bart is working in Guatemala to build above-ground water tanks that will be filled up with rain water. The water should last for 4 months, until the next rainy season comes and fills them up again. In addition to providing water for the community, the project provides jobs for members of that community. Using community members is cheaper than contracting with an outside company to build the tanks. If you are interested in helping with the project, please let Mark Rogo know.

Historical Facts:
February 26, 1962: Due to “lack of support,” the Irish Republican Army formally ended what it called “The Campaign of Resistance to British Occupation,” which was also popularly referred to as the “Border Campaign.” From December 12, 1956 until February 1962, the IRA engaged in guerrilla warfare against targets in Northern Ireland, with the aim of creating a united Ireland. It failed, but it kept the IRA active and engaged. Only 11 people died during this campaign
