I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends despite the Covid-19 restrictions. Our family celebrated at two households and I ate too much despite telling myself to just take a few samples. Oh well, it's once a year and I am grateful my family is healthy and can get together.
At a previous meeting Maria Dietrich gave a short presentation about Nick Millward, the Rotary Peace Fellowship award recipient. We are working toward a future program with Nick, and in case you missed it, here is a quick bio about him: 
Officer Nick Millward currently serves in the US Marine Corps as Executive Officer of Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team Pacific in Yokosuka, Japan. He serves on the executive committee for the Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies, which promotes the study of the region's strategic, diplomatic, and legal issues. He also coordinates volunteer service and fundraisers to benefit the Shinsen Children's Home that serves orphans and abused children. He has introduced other Marines to volunteer and community projects so that they have opportunities to meet locals while sharing cultures with each other. He has also served as an athletics coach and English instructor. He is a former Interact Club president. Nick has extensive experience working with NGOs, the Peace Corps, and USAID to secure funding and improve local communities. He wants to study peace and development and was awarded the Rotary Peace Fellowship to study at University of Queensland in Australia. 
Monday December 7 at 12 Noon our Rotary District 7430 is hosting a webinar titled "Welcome to the World of Rotary". The purpose of the event is to network with other Rotarians and learn more about the world of Rotary outside your club. Please note it is at 12 Noon, the District is testing different times to help everyone have a chance to attend these informative meetings. Please register at this link: .
Keep In Mind:
  • We are supporting our Liberty H. S. Interact Club Toys for Tots toy collection by bringing toys to Aykroyd Hardware now through December 11. We will forward them to the students for distribution by Toys for Tots. Contact Maria Dietrich or me for more information.
  • Bethlehem Rotary will be ringing the bell again for the Salvation Army in December. Stay tuned for the date and time.
  • If you are interested in serving a 7 month term on the Board, please contact me directly.
  • New member Michelle Morton is asking anyone interested in participating in a holiday parade around the Kirkland Village campus to raise the spirits of their residents  to contact her at Sounds like a great way to get into the holiday spirit, spread some cheer, and maybe see some former members including Bob and Madeline Brown who always say hello to Bethlehem Rotary when I see them.
Our regular Zoom meetings return this Wednesday at Noon. The December Rotary Theme is Disease Prevention and Treatment. Following that theme, Maureen Wendling, the Executive Director of the Shanthi Project, will be presenting a program on the benefits of mindfulness, which increase mind-body self-awareness, reduce stress and improve focus. In a crazy, fast paced world, Maureen will show us how to create calm together.
See you Wednesday!
Yours in Rotary service,
President Pete Mickolay
