Saturday May 27, 2021
Last week's meeting featured great presentations including an inspiring message from our final BAVTS Artisan of the Month award recipient of the school year. Dustin Lopez is a senior in the Protective Services program and talked about his transformation from a kid looking for trouble to a young adult with a plan. He credits teacher John Karb with helping him find a purpose and has been working toward the Army for training as a mechanic. Post military he hopes to own his own car repair business. With his drive and positive outlook, I know he will succeed and by his interest in our meeting, hopefully become a future Rotarian!
Dr. Nidhi Mehta from LVPG Cardiology-Muhlenberg offered an excellent program on Modifying Risk Factors for Heart Disease. It is very important to have a review to be sure we are doing the best we can in leading a healthy life. Dr. Mehta did that, and while technical issues prevented her from "showing" us the program, her oral presentation on Zoom gave us a more personal Doctor-to-Patient talk. Don't worry if you didn't remember everything she said. Just go to our Clubrunner homepage Download Files section to view the presentation.
While you are on Clubrunner Download Files section, be sure to check out the flyer for the 42nd Annual Boys & Girls Club of Bethlehem Golf Outing on Monday June 14th at the Steel Club in Hellertown. Member Winston Alozie (and CEO of the B&G Club) is expecting some Rotarian Foursomes so download the form, call up some friends, and lets make the event a big success(and a good excuse to golf!).
Thank you to the Bethlehem Rotarians who dropped off two truckloads of yard sale items for The Kindness Project Yard Sale that occurred Saturday. Judging by the amount of items and the shoppers, I hope to report back that they had a successful event. And big thanks to Jim and Deb Geiger for providing hauling, sorting, and manning the tables. 
HAPPY HOUR THURSDAY: Paul Ricciardi reminded me that our Happy Hour is Thursday at 5:30PM at the Twisted Olive restaurant at 51 W. Broad St. If you cannot attend in person we will be offering a Zoom link option. Please stop by and say hello either way, we have good conversation and tasty appetizers to complement!
Our club participates in Global Grants for sustainable, clean water, sanitation, and hygiene projects for the indigenous Mayans in Guatemala. Project Chair Rick Lawrence sent us a report that you may read by clicking this LINK
At this week's meeting we will welcome Carol Ritter for an update about the Bethlehem Food Co-Op. You may have heard the buzz about their recently announced Food Co-Op Market at 250 E. Broad St. Carol will fill us in on the details plus the many other initiatives going on in the community to keep us eating healthy and buying local. Please invite a friend to join us to learn more about this organization. See you Wednesday.
Yours in Rotary service,
President Pete Mickolay
