This week we are pleased to have Jo Ann Simons, CEO of NE ARC Center for Linking Lives at our Tuesday morning meeting.  The Center serves individuals throughout the North Shore with programs and services that include: support for families who have children diagnosed with autism or other intellectual disabilities, early intervention, residential and health services, supported employment, an assistive technology lending library, and skills training.

We have exciting possible collaborations with organizations represented by our recent speakers.  Our members are connecting with folks regarding the Ghana project and with the Rotarian who spoke with us about the Rotary Children’s Fund.

I asked last week for members to help with our public image, publicity, and social media. My email has not been overwhelmed with replies.  If no volunteers come forward some of you may be receiving a strong arm (not knee cap time yet).   

Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, known as a day of service.  We have a few service opportunities in which we all can participate.
Event: Marblehead Community Food Drive 
Date: Saturday, January 23 and Sunday, January 24
Time: 10:00 AM- 2:00 PM
Location: Marblehead Community Center, 10 Humphrey St. 
Donations in order of priority: 
                 Checks made out to "My Brother's Table"  (In lieu of drop off, checks can be mailed to MDTC, PO Box 232, Marblehead, MA 01945)
                 Gift cards to grocery stores, Costco, Target, or Dollar Stores

The Lynn Democratic City Committee is hosting a food drive from 10-2 on Monday. Items, gift cards and donations are donated to My Brother’s Table.  Donations can be sent to 25 Bellevue Rd. Lynn.

In place of our usual club assembly on January 26th we will be having a panel discussion about Food Insecurity.   We have invited local folks who deal with this great concern.   Business items will be tabled to another meeting time.
