Our speaker today was our new ADG Amy Luckiewicz.  Be on the lookout for an e-mail from the district about discounted tickets for the Boston Pops. Also new members will be getting invitations to a new member orientation.  This is a great way to learn about Rotary and it is a fun time. Amy thanked PP Domenic for his great communication, following up with potential new members.  She will be looking to create a team to work on membership.  Amy explained that her job as ADG is to assist the clubs with any information they need, feel free to e-mail Amy ( with any questions.  Amy told us a little about herself and a couple of fun facts were that she loves travelling and swimming with sharks!
