The Forecaster for October 2, 2018

Our September 25th meeting was a busy one that included a visit and comments by our District 7610 Governor, Glen Yarborough and a speech by Lisa Jacobs from the Alexandria Teaching Consortium (ATC). The DG told us about activities going on in the district after he recognized all present who’d served in Vietnam with “Welcome Home” pins. He also told us it is time to be thinking of major goals for Rotary after we successfully conclude the Polio Now crusade. Our speaker, Lisa Jacobs told of the great work being done by the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC) to help early elementary students to read at grade level by the third grade. She also encouraged us to volunteer as tutors that commit to two 30-minute sessions per week from October to May with a student who is taken out of class for these sessions. We also were asked for book donations to help expand their library development program with readers for 5, 6, and 7 year old children. During the meeting we also inducted three new members: Lt. Alphonso Hughes Jr., Farheena Siddiqui, and Mark E. Wright.
