An excellent meeting with our Rotary District 7090 District Governor, Marlee Diehl at the Buffalo Launch Club – she, a focused, dynamic, speaker gave several key take-a-ways: the unique value of Rotary in leading the eradication of Polio, making an extra push for donations to Rotary Foundation in it’s 100th year all the more worthy; the tremendous range of local projects done, from Grand Island’s Miracle League and book donations, Niagara C. Central’s dictionaries for kids, to water purification in foreign lands. Then there is the working / learning / networking / fun side of Rotary: Marlee’s description of the District Conference in Batavia, Oct 21 to 23, certainly a must do event. GI President Dan Flaim, after thanking Asst. Governor of our area, John Cooper of Niagara Falls, then gave DG Marlee Diehl a Grand Island Rotary coffee cup to remind her of the excellent evening and meal at Buffalo Launch Club that evening.
