Governor's Message
An Extremely Busy Week
By Jim Fusco
As promised here in the last newsletter, we had another beautiful week of weather. Last week, I visited Concord and Westwood, and have only Bedford to go.
Although I only had two visits last week, I was extremely busy because my wife, Karen Fusco, along with District Governors-Elect Pat and Skip Doyle and District Governor Nominee Karin Gaffney attended the Zone 24/32 Institute event in Providence along with more than 400 other Rotarians from Russia, Canada, France, Bermuda, New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Read more

Concord: The American Dream Is Still Alive - From An Indian Heart
The Rotary Club of Concord proudly announces the first in its annual Speaker Series, an evening featuring internationally acclaimed speaker and author Krish Dhanam, on Friday, October 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the new Concord-Carlisle Regional High School. A social commentator, he has delivered his message of hope, humor and balance in more than 50 countries and throughout the United States. 
A native of India, Dhanam arrived in the United States with only $9.00 and a vision of promise in his heart and, in many ways, is the epitome of the American Dream. The advice he offers will stir you to the foundation of your belief in this great land. Dhanam serves as CEO and managing partner of Skylife Success, global ambassador for the Zig Ziglar Group and corporate adjunct with Ravi Zacharias.
Tickets at $50 per person, with student and group rates available either at www.rotaryclubofconcord.org or from John Dow at 617-803-6688. Proceeds will benefit the Concord club's charitable projects. Click here for the event flyer, in PDF format.
