One Good Deed for Sandy
On Friday, May 13th, it was a super surprised Sandy Bartlett who was handed the keys to a shiny black car at the Bow Rotary's weekly meeting by Hopkinton Rotary President James Newsom and Bow Rotary President Mike Griffin. Bow Rotarians organized the donation of a much-needed refurbished car for Sandy, to replace her blue Toyota which has put on a lot of miles driving to weekly breakfast meetings in both Bow and Hopkinton. Hopkinton joined Bow in making repairs for the car and putting on new tires - good for another 18 years of traveling to breakfast Sandy!
Sandy Bartlett has been making sure that Hopkinton Rotarians enjoy a good breakfast on Wednesday mornings for more than 18 years. And she's been catering breakfast at the Bow Club for almost as long. Here's to another 18 years Sandy!

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
