Program of August 15th - Charles Peltz, Maestro of the Glens Falls Symphony gave his vision of the role this group has in our community.  The symphony is doing well with the number of musicians and donations to support the Symphony.  Charles reminded us how Glens Falls has changed over the last 20 years with the vision of select leaders of the area.  The strong foundation that has been created has helped the symphony and other arts to grow in the community.

Program of August 8th - Mark Shaw, President of StoredTech, gave us good overview of the issues regarding cyber security.  According to statistics, there is a breach of security (hack) every 38 seconds.  The age group that is the most careless is between 18-24 with USA leading the world (73%) in hacks globally.  The biggest problem is the use of passwords.  Not the strength of passwords, but using passwords as a means of security. Many companies have implemented 2 step verification as a login feature. Mark recommends going to this whenever possible.  Government rules such as HIPPA, do not have to report security breaches unless the number of people affected is over 1000 for each breach.  For example, 999 records for patients can be tossed in the trash without shredding the documents.  Another interesting point is that support systems, such as HVAC can be hacked to gain access to the additional information from other sources.  The long and short of his presentation is that one must be careful and aware of the many security issued with using our electronics on a daily basis.

Program of August 1st - We had an excellent program this week with Janice and Charlotte Holding presenting on the mission work with a small town in Haiti.  What started as establishing a school with their efforts of a Free Methodist church from the area has progressed into not only teaching them school subjects, but also skills such as sewing that will help them provide a better way of living.  Their missions have also provided help with construction of water systems to withstand droughts and improved housing with more permanent walls which will withstand tropical storms.  Janice is working with Ian Williams who has been part of the Rotary International effort to provide clean water to Haiti.  Truly the spirit of Rotary. 
 
Patti Pepe - Is collecting aluminum can pop tops as part of a recycling effort.  Please bring any collected aluminum tops to her at any meeting.
