We had a very successful inaugural Fall Golf Outing at the Berkshire Valley Golf Course on Monday, October 27.  We had an enthusiastic crowd that enjoyed the beautiful fall weather for a fun outing.  Afterwards, we enjoyed an excellent buffet dinner at Portofino's in Oak Ridge.  Thanks to the Fall Golf Committee for their hard work - Sam Nails, Walter Fay, Louis Cattaneo, and Jeff Beers.

We welcomed Kyung Pak and Yon Han from the Korean Spirit & Culture Promotion Project to our meeting.  Ms. Pak and Ms. Han offered a program that talked about the history of Korea, with an emphasis on the origin of the Korean alphabet and the advances in technology, both in communications and medicine that Korea has enjoyed.  It was interesting for us to hear that 100% of Koreans have access to wireless Internet services.  They entertained questions from the Club and we all went home a little smarter about a different part of the world.

We are working on the Dictionary project.  Just some quick numbers.  Since this project started, 24 million Dictionaries have been distributed throughout the school systems in the United States alone. 12 million of them have been distributed through Rotary Clubs. Over 90,000 will be distributed in New Jersey alone this year by Rotary Clubs. We are a part of those numbers.

People ask, "Why are Dictionaries so important?"  According to a study, in order to be successful and fluent in language, the average person should have a vocabulary of around 20,000 words.  Sounds like a lot, but it also make sense that you not only need to be able to spell a word, you should also know what it means.  Hence, Dictionaries!  Thanks to all of the Club members who helped raise the funds to purchase these Dictionaries and all those who are working on getting these important books to the third graders in our school system.  You are the best!
