The Forecaster for October 9, 2018

Included in this Forecaster are details of three new members, Lt. Alphonso Hughes, Jr, Mark E Wright, and Farheena Siddiqui to both infom members on these new folks and to be able to contact them as we bring them into club activities. Donna Wilson also announced that John Moorman was our Rotarian of the Month for September because of his efforts in organizing our Taste for Giving (to be at the Patent and Trademark Office on Oct. 19th). Donna also reminded us to help bring in items for the silent auction (contact her regarding delivery) and John mentioned that tickets can be purchased on our website. Ann Rector introduced Maestro Jim Ross as our speaker. Jim is the newly named music director of the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra (ASO) who is taking them into their 75th Anniversary year. Jim told us about his many plans for the ASO, such as making the classical music more contemporary and fun while also having events that help other community organizations with their fund raising. An enjoyable and enlightening presentation by a most engaging speaker. He made a major point about the many ties and similiarities between our Rotary club and the ASO.
