Home Page Stories
"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." A quote attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto of the Imperial Navy of Japan after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.  The quote, though popularized in the movie Tora, Tora, Tora, is unsubstantiated either in first person utterance or the written word.  Despite its questionable authenticity, we can all delight and appreciate the spirit of America that it embodies!  Remember Pearl Harbor.

Thursday, December 8th at noon at Twin Hills!!!!  $17 per with the famous Rotary eggnog (spiking optional) thrown in!   All encouraged to bring an unwrapped child's present for Gray House, as is our custom.   A great time with loads of fellowship and catching up with those we do not see on a regular nasis - always a surprise guest or two!!!  Tis the season...

2016-17: ROTARY SERVING HUMANITY is this year’s RI President–elect John F Germ’s chosen theme.  Germ believes that “now is the time to capitalize on our success: as we complete the eradication of polio, and catapult Rotary forward to be an even greater force for good in the world.” The East Longmeadow Rotary Club continues to support Rotary International’s efforts in eradicating Polio, providing humanitarian relief after natural disasters, along with providing support for clean water projects for underdeveloped nations.   

A code of ethics adopted by Rotary International.

      1.       Is it the TRUTH?
      2.       Is it FAIR to all concerned?
      3.       Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
      4.       Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
