What an interesting Rotary meeting this afternoon. We heard about the business side of being an author from Edith Maxwell, who also writes under the pen name, Maddie Day. It’s more than just writing a mystery story. Be sure to check out her website, edithmaxwell.com and sign up for her newsletter and Facebook page.We also learned that Cathy Toomey was written into (and out of) the Quaker Midwife Mysteries. It’s amazing what you can get if you’re the highest bidder

Today, Amesbury and Newburyport Rotarians heard from District Governor, Alexander Falk. He updated us on the presidential initiatives as well as the leadership’s plan for District 7930. He even got a few laughs from the group which isn’t always easy. KUDOS Alexander!
 
The Amesbury Rotary met at the Amesbury Library in front of the fountain we gave the city as part of our 75th Anniversary. Head Librarian, Aime Westphal, and Friends of the Library, incoming president, Katie Fawkes gave us a status report on all things library!
It’s a new Rotary year, which means new leadership in our clubs, our districts, and our international board. On Monday, June 27 PDG Julia Phelps inducted our club’s first co-presidents, Donna Collins and Eric Palen. We also gave 4 people Paul Harris recognitions. Ann Ferguson, Amy Farrell, Ann Boudreau, and Tom Farrell were named Paul Harris Fellows because they exemplify our motto, Service Above Self. Outgoing President; Tom Farrell gave an excellent recap of the Club's many accomplishments during the last Rotary Year, and incoming Co Presidents Donna Collins and Eric Palen laid out their view and goals for the 2022-2023 Rotary Year. On June 30, hekd at the Danversport Yacht Club, at the district celebration where our new District Governor Alesander Falk inducted Donna and Eric.

This past week, Jane Ansaldo Church shared information about the Step Up Thrift Shop. They accept “lightly” used/worn clothing/shoes and books to name a few things (not furniture) and they are open certain hours but you can donate 24 hours/day at the shed they have that’s between the library and the church. They reinvest almost all the proceeds back into the City of Amesbury.
Amesbury Rotary held it's annual Bike Safety Day in conjuction with the Amesbury Police Department in the lower mill yard parking lot on May 21st. Approximately 30 kids brought their bikes down to get fitted for a new helmet, get their bikes tuned up, ride the bike safety course - they got a
certificate when completing it, and enter a raffle for a new bike. Click on "Read More" for picture from this event.
