Notes from our July 12th Meeting

President Ken opened the meeting by introducing our two guests: Brenda McKenzie and Angel Ekstrom, our guest speaker.
Ken then spoke about the importance of volunteering, not just for the savings generated in labor costs, but perhaps more importantly the good feelings, personal growth, self esteem, the joy of working with others, making a difference in the lives of others, and so much more that comes with volunteering.  So why don't we invite others to join with us in our volunteer activities?
Ken went down the list of upcoming activities: the Fun Fair this Saturday, the "Christmas in July" drawing on the 22nd on The Common, our cooking for the Wednesday evening program at the Amphitheater on August 2nd, and the picnic at Ken's on the 9th.
Bill Clark encouraged us all to go the the Sign Up Genius and take a few slots to sell tickets for Christmas in July.
There's a special benefit event for the Holderness Historical Society being held this Saturday, July 15th, at Tannenruh, the former home of John Nicolay, Abraham Lincoln's personal secretary.  Paintings by Helen Nicolay that had been stored under a bed (some for over 50 years) will be on display.  Tickets are $25.
Moe reminded everyone about "The Story Walk" next to the Holderness Historical Society...a great place to take kids for sure!
Following our regular meeting on July 26th, we've been invited to a special Open House at the Bridge House as a "Thank You" for our Club's donation to the Hospice Unit.
Next week, one of our Scholarship Students, Sabrina Tedeschi will present a program and we will hear from some of our RYLA students as well.
Paul Brochu introduced our speaker, Angel Ekstrom, Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for Central New Hampshire, who gave us an overview of how our area will respond to some sort of Public Health Threat.  Staffing the various responses to any incident may take as many as 160-170 volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Angel at 238-3582 or
Joni won the 50/50 and Angel did not pull the right we live to draw again at next week's meeting!!!
