Last week’s meeting included announcements about Rotarian of the Month for March, Jim Carmalt,; blue badges for Andrea Downing, Pat Tokarz, and Andrea Koslow; presentation of Paul Harris awards to those who missed Charter Night; info on our April community service as a Rebuilding Alexandria project; and an update on preparations for our 2nd Annual Golf Tourney on Monday April 22nd. David Fishman introduced Ambassador William Hill who spoke to us about the USSR and Russia since the fall of the Berlin Wall. The US and the West basically went through three periods with Russia – 1. The Peace Dividend when we decided to stay involved in Europe, 2. Reunification of Germany, and 3. the collapse of the USSR and the Russian Empire. Amb. Hill gave us a very good speech about the many factors involved over the recent years and closed with a few observations and recommendations about the way ahead.
