Greetings members and friends,
It is a real pleasure watching our NC Rotary Club grow, and seeing the rich spectrum of talents, insights and experiences that our new members bring to our club. Although I wasn’t  present last Thursday, I can see and hear from the reports that you all had the chance to experience this same pleasure when welcoming Mai Lee as our newest member. We look forward to getting to know our new members better over the next year, and discovering what depth and joy a diverse club can bring!
Speaking of diversity … at our June 8 lunch meeting, our speaker will be Ray Ward, Past District Governor of District 5180 and now a member of Auburn Gold Country. Ray will be speaking to us on the subject of “Inclusion and Diversity in Rotary”. Please mark your calendars to hear about this important subject! In the meantime, we’ll enjoy a relaxed social time again at Round Table Pizza this week on Thursday June 1 at 5:30pm. Come a bit early if you’d like to order food or drink.  No need to RSVP, just show up!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Chris (and Carolyn)

First Menstrual Kits have shipped
Lynda Guthrie proudly announced that the first 50 menstrual hygiene kits shipped this week.  The kits are headed to Chiapas Mexico where they will be distributed to young girls and women in the region.
The objective of this project is to make it possible for young girls to stay in school, avoid pregnancy, and gain greater potential for economic gain through menstrual health and sexual education training provided with the menstrual hygiene kits.
