Robert C Wood Memorial Heroes Celebration 2022
Thursday, November 10th will be our annual Rotary Foundation event, but this year we are rebranding it the “ROBERT C. WOOD MEMORIAL HEROES CELEBRATION” in honor and memory of our friend, the late Past District Governor Bob Wood (2018-19). This event will be starting at 5:30 PM at the Danversport and we hope that many of you will be attending. The evening will include a social hour, silent auction, dinner, and Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) presentations.

All Rotary Club are invited to nominate a hero from their community to present them with a PHF recognition at the event. Candidates could be doctors, nurses, teachers, crossing guards, emergency services personnel, veterans, or anyone else whom the Rotary Club believes to be a community hero. The online nomination form will be sent to Club Presidents this week, and the nomination deadline is October 10th.

We would also like to ask all Rotary Clubs to start thinking about silent auction items: we would ideally like to see items with a minimum value of $200, so that people will be eager to bid high and bid often! All monies raised in the silent auction will directly go to The Rotary Foundation! Details about how to submit the silent auction items will be announced in September.

Women in Rotary Spotlight:  Lori Karas
When asked about female mentorship, Lori Karas, District Governor Elect of District 7930, said: 
"There are two women in Rotary who stand out. Joan Arsenault and I met at NEPETs when I was preparing to become President of Boston #7 in March 2017. I was still a relatively new Rotarian – just about 1.5 years. Through our discussion she then asked, 'do you know who your AG will be?' I didn’t. She immediately said, 'I will be your AG and help you take what you’ve learned at NEPETs and help you navigate Rotary.' 
"One month later at the District Assembly, Joan introduced me to PDG Ingrid Brown. As the three of us spoke, Ingrid was incredibly encouraging, supportive, and felt I had what it took to make a difference.
"Now in order to lift up other women," Lori says she "makes introductions and opens doors and windows."

Lynn Donates School Supplies to Salvation Army
On August 25, 2022, Lynn Rotarians met at the Old Tyme Restaurant to gather together school supplies for donation to the Salvation Army.  The Rotarians organized supplies by category to make it easier for Salvation Army Captains Kevin and Helen Johnson to put in backpacks for children.

At the end of the evening there were at least 15 heavily laden bags of school supplies, primarily for elementary age students.  The supplies will be provided to the students at a Salvation Army distribution later in August.  The Salvation Army is accepting donations at its headquarters at 1 Franklin St., Lynn Monday thru Friday.
