Scuttlebutt February 7, 2021
This Tuesday we have Marisa Bassett talking to us about International Law.  She is another one of the amazing children of our members. Quite a lineup we have had. 

We have a special joint meeting with the Marblehead Club on February 16th at 6pm featuring the Honorable Steve Limon our Holiday POPS artist and well-known jurist.   No other meeting that week.  On February 23rd we will have a club assembly. 

The Valentines cards to support polio vaccines can be ordered though Kathleen at $10 per card which buys 3 vaccines.  Since we will not be plunging at least till the spring this is a good February donation. Please contact Kathleen to order the cards and give donations. 

Speaking of donation, our winter-spring service project will help with the food insecurity problem in 3 local areas.  Each site has slightly different needs and ways to support them.  As you go to the grocery store please fill a bag with food we can give away.
