The Forecaster for March 19, 2019

Last week we had a normal jam packed meeting with friends, fellowship, food, and good fun. Announcements were made about: finishing Paul Harris Awards by Charter Night, ROM for March being Frank Fannon, Golf Tourney on April 24th, EREY of $25 suggested before end of May, and a most interesting speech by Rev. Dean Schultz, mostly about the DALIT people of India. Dean told us of the deplorable life conditions of the Dalit (or “untouchables”- they are likely the most persecuted group in the world). He shared many of his photos taken around India showing the horrendous traffic and living conditions of a population of 1.3 billion people with the Dalits making up 250 million of them. A gleam of hope for the Dalits is that their schooling is improving somewhat and thus younger people are starting to bring themselves and their communities towards a more favorable future. This bulletin includes the sad news of the passing of Lady Kaye Matthews, wife of Sir Stewart.
