Hamsa Dhota came to our breakfast meeting last week and told us of his joy in Rotary.  He was accompanied by Andy Lohn from Savannah South and Mick McKay from Savannah Sunrise, our two Assistant Governors. Hamsa’s family grew up, he said, with Rotary as its background.  He has been a Rotarian since 1978, when he joined the St. Simons Club.  Since then he has started the Jeckyll Island and the Camden County Clubs. He told us a little of his early life and work experience and of his growing interest in Rotary and its common passion to serve.
We welcomed Dr. Miriam Rittmeyer this past Wednesday to talk to us about women’s status and health in Guatemala.  Dr. Rittmeyer is the Board Chairman of Phalarope, a non-profit established in 2016; she is an MD, PhD, and has a master’s degree in Public Health.   The organization is devoted to the cause of education and health of women, focused at present on Guatemala.  Its mandate is to ‘empower women and at the same time involve men.’  She described her organization as “shoestring,” result oriented, operating in an environmentally sustainable and scientific manner.
Our member Tom Macek is a Major Donor to Rotary International, and was thanked by Pam Lightsey, past District Governor, at our last meeting.  Tom has been a Rotary member for 26 years, and a Club President three times, twice in Hoboken, N.J., and once here at our Club.
Our Rotary Club was chartered on October 30th, 1997, and last week we celebrated its 20th anniversary at a party attended by some sixty people at the home of Steve and Diane Graham. The party was hosted by Toni Marwitz, our current President. We welcomed special guests District Governor Hamsa Thota and previous District Governor Pam Lightsey. Mick McKay from the Savannah Sunrise Club and Andy Lohn from Savannah South came to celebrate with us.
 
If you missed a meeting, you can make it up by attending a meeting at another Rotary Club or... getting credit for an On-Line Make-up. The link for an On-Line make-up is on the club web site under Club Links (E-Club Make Ups).

Once you complete the on-line make-up, print the confirmation page and bring it to the next meeting. The online-make-up takes about 10-15 minutes, reading an interesting article related to Rotary.

This will help our club achieve an excellent attendance record.
