A very important week for our Jewish and Christian members

By Pat and Skip Doyle

This past weekend, we attended a performance of the rock opera "Jesus Christ Superstar." It seemed such an appropriate beginning for a very important week for our Jewish and Christian members.

Passover began Monday evening, April 10, and ends Tuesday evening, April 18. The first Passover seder for our Jewish members was on the evening of Monday, April 10, and the second Passover seder takes place this evening, April 11. Passover is a festival of freedom. It commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt, and their transition from slavery to freedom.
Christian commemoration began on Palm Sunday, April 9 and ends on Easter Sunday, April 16. This week marks a holy time for Christians as they observe the Last Supper on Holy Thursday and the crucifixion of Christ on Good Friday culminating  with Christ’s resurrection on Easter.
We wish all of our members the very best during this special week.

Our attention now goes to our Multi-District Conference on April 28 through 30 inProvidence, which is less than a month away. Remember, when we say "our" conference, we are referring to all of us. This conference is a celebration of the 2016-2017 Rotary year for all clubs in our district. Please try hard to find a way to a part of the celebration.

Ideally, we would love to see you all at the full conference. But we also understand that many of you have weekend demands on your time.

How about bringing your family down to Providence to see Waterfire (shown, right) on Friday evening? No charge, and you will be joining with Rotarians from around Southern New England.

Only available forSaturday? For $145, you can enjoy a fun-filled breakfastnumerous interesting breakout sessions, the yearly District Business meeting, an afternoon to enjoy our House of Friendship, or shop at Russell Hampton and/or the Providence Mall. Late afternoon, you can enjoy a free Rotary Means Businessnetworking event. You can end the day with an evening dinner and a chance to hear Lauren Templeton (shown, left), one of the top 5 women financiers in the world. If you head back home before then, you would miss some evening fun.

The quote, "Be careful what you wish for," comes to mind - along with the ending, “Because you might get it.”  We wished for one million new dollars for The Rotary Foundation in 2016-2017, and we got it thanks to the work of our Major Donor Gift Committee under the extraordinary leadership of Chair Satya Mitra.
Join us at our Million Dollar Journey Dinner gala on Thursday, May 25 at Mechanics Hall in Worcester. Let's celebrate Rotary doing good in the world.

Sixteen humanitarian trips have now been completed
By Dick Manelis
Sixteen humanitarian trips have now been completed on behalf of District 7910. We have been able to extend the hand of friendship and provide hope to hundreds of people in third-world countries in Centraland South America. These efforts are a partnership between those who volunteer their time and resources and the clubs that offer financial support for the various projects. Without both, we could not accomplish what we do. I would like to extend a special "thank you" to those clubs that have supported these efforts over the years: Dedham, Framingham, Marlborough, Montachusett Area, Nashoba Valley, Needham, Uxbridge, Westborough, and Uxbridge.
