Good morning Rotarians.
Here are the notes from last week’s meeting.
Harry Wohlander gave the opening words.
Bill Guney gave the Hat story about his time in Morocco when things went awry when the  basketball team he was working with acquired some stereo equipment in an unusual fashion.
The speaker was Roy Schlieben, director of the Maker Space (MAxT) facility in Peterborough NH.  Roy gave us a history of MAxT, how it is funded, and the services it provides the community through membership and public events.  The Vose Farm facility has a wide variety of equipment that is available to the public on a subscription basis.  An event called Repair Café is an held monthly. Repair Café  is open to the public and is an event where anyone, who has something that needs fixed can bring it in and have experienced personnel attempt to restore it to usefulness.  MAxT moved to the large Vose Farm facility earlier this year  after starting up in a small space in south Peterborough.
  1. Bob Vecchiotti thanked all the members who worked to make our evening meeting happen during Rotary week.
  2. Bob Meissner alerted the club to the change security at the Church that will happen very soon.
  3. The Rotary Gala will be held in Nashua on November 15th.  I encourage you to attend as it will an opportunity to meet with fellow Rotarians in the district and discuss club service initiatives, fund raising, and other pertinent issues.
  4. Efforts to schedule and plan RYLA events have begun.  Bill Gurney is the point person for RYLA activities.
