Our newscaster emeritus, Gant Redmon, told us that METRO/WMATA is planning on building a new HQ here in Alexandria on Eisenhower Ave. John Moorman recognized birthdays of Drew Carroll and Farrell Egge and then President Sharon Meisel presented blue badges to Bob Blanchard and Dave Walker who transferred to us from other Rotary clubs. To end the announcements, Nancy VG Cooper told us a bit more about the Peace Building efforts our club is doing, often in concert with other local clubs. Dr. Gregory Hutchings, Superintendent of Alexandria City Public Schools talked to us about the efforts he’s leading in support of our local schools.
