This is a time of celebration throughout the world. Ramadan ended on 8/29/2011, and our Muslim Brothers and Sisters in Rotary are celebrating EID. This weekend for the US is Labor Day weekend, it marks the end of Summer and the beginning of the school year for children all over the US. For the people of the Connecticut, we celebrate that we are safe after Hurricane Irene. The damages done are truly amazing but, we will rebound, and we are thankful it was only a category 1 storm. I can not even fathom the destruction a category 3 would have done to our region. As we celebrate and give thanks let also be thankful and mindful of all the good we have done and will continue to do in our community and the world - Through ROTARY. God Bless, and have a wonderful holiday weekend. Larry
