michelle gasbarro becomes d7910 grant subcommittee chair

By Sanjay Deshpande

I am pleased to announce that Past President Michelle Gasbarro (shown, right), of the Rotary Club of Montachusett Area, has become District 7910's Grants Subcommittee chair, effective February 1. She has been an active member of the Grants Subcommittee during the 2016-2017 Rotary year, and stepped in to help outgoing Chair Jorge Yarzebski with some of his responsibilities.
Michelle also volunteered during the '15-'16 Rotary year year to close out five District Grants. Prior to then, she was president of Montachusett Area Rotary, and District Secretary in '15-'16 She is the primary international contract on Global Grant1 472022, which provided assistance to a school in Liberia. Michelle will also be district secretary during District Governor-Elect Karin Gaffney's year, which begins this July 1.
Please join me in congratulating Michelle in her new role, and extend her your full cooperation in her activities related to Foundation grants.
Please also join me in thanking Jorge Yarzebski for his valuable work during the past 10 months. Despite changes in his professional life last spring, and again this winter, he managed to move the District and Global Grants forward. Recently, he had a lot of demands on his time due to family issues and was relieved when it was suggested that he let someone else be the Grants Subcommittee chair for the next two or so years while he continues to serve on the Subcommittee and share his experience with Foundation grants.
