We had three HAPPY DOLLARS
  • Dennis Logue contributed a Happy Dollar in honor of his retirement as Chairman of the Board at Ledyard Bank, a retirement the bank requires of 75-year olds.
  • Dick Podolec contributed a Happy Dollar in honor of recently deceased Lebanon Rotarian Sue Donnelly who launched the Rotaract Club at Lebanon High School who just opened a food pantry at the site of the former Listen Store. 
  • Nan Carroll offered a Happy Dollar in appreciation of Deb Blanc's willingness to step up as chair of the Rotary Auction... and Deb used the opportunity to being recruiting for assistance on all fronts--- especially securing corporate donors!  
This week's raffle winner was Dennis Logue who was given the opportunity to ring rotary bell twice! He decided to wait to do so and ultimately missed his chance at this meeting. I am certain he will redeem this opportunity at a future meeting! 
Daniel Chamberlin, the Associate Librarian for Digital Strategies at Dartmouth College, shared some insights on changes to libraries in the past several decades, illustrating those changes by asking us to share our associations with "libraries".

June 12 – Dave Allen will introduce a representative from ACTS Honduras, a not-for-profit based in the Upper Valley that promotes sustainable programs for health, education, agriculture and economic development in the El Rosario area of Honduras.
June 19 – Back by popular demand!!! Rubi Simon and the Howe staff will do 30-books-in-30-minutes. Bring your notebook, stopwatch, and a bag to carry home some books to read during the Summer break. 
Enjoy this glorious Spring weather
