 Program for Jan. 16th - We had a well-attended and informative weekly luncheon last week. Our speaker was our own Tom Lyons who gave us a thorough review and understanding of how social media works and why it has become such a powerful outreach medium for businesses and organizations like our own club. He shared some fascinating statistics on the growth of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and a few others. Tom could easily have spent an hour on the topic but unfortunately, we were limited on time. Perhaps he can come back to present Part 2 at a future luncheon! Tom encouraged all of us in the club to engage social media more to stay connected.
 
January 26, 2020 - Jim Goodspeed thanked everyone for volunteering to help with the packing party for 5K/Shamrock Shuffle scheduled for Sunday, January 26th. We have filled the volunteer slots, but all are welcome! More hands will make for faster work! Jim also updated us on the Christ Church supper for the homeless in Glens Falls scheduled for Saturday, January 25th. We could use a few more hands to help serve if you have the time.
 
Alzheimers Effort - Barb Sweet updated us on the Alzheimer’s Support Group meeting at Glens Falls Hospital. Our club is taking an active role in supporting this effort in our community. She encouraged everyone in the club who may have interest to attend the meeting on January 25th at the Pruyn Pavilion, 3rd Floor, in Glens Falls Hospital.

 Program for Dec 19th - This weeks program was the great performance by the Glens Falls High School Octet who sang songs and danced to the music.  It should be noted that they are actually more than a group of 8 and have somewhere around 20 students who performed for us.  We were delighted to see them and look forward to have them perform again next year at this time.    
 
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkak, and a Happy New Year.  I can't believe that our Rotary year is now half over.  The many working committees have helped this be a smooth transition for me.  Thanks to all of you who have made this possible. As our activities wind down over the few weeks, let us reflect on the past few months and prepare and plan for the upcoming future.  Spring will show up as well as our activities such as the 5K race on April 25, 2020 and hopefully the Fishing Derby in early May.  We are still looking for a project lead for this event which is for the young children and their parents.  I know the Interact and RYLA groups will continue over the next few months and may be looking for volunteers.  Other events such as the Jenkinsville Soccer Tournament will then follow.  So while our activities subside in January, February and March, Rotarians will be still be engaged for the upcoming year.  I hope all of you who are on committees continue with your efforts and hope new members find ways to contribute.  Thank you all.
