The EarlyAct Club had a great turnout Monday for their first meeting of the year. They are off to an awesome start and they are very excited.

The EarlyActors and Interactors made large thank you banners and wrote letters for our first responders. They delivered them with “sweet treats” to the Fire Station and Police Station in their areas on 9/11

Don’t forget they are having their joint beach cleanup this Saturday from 8:30 until 11. They will be meeting at the Saint Augustine pier and would love to have some Rotarians come and join them.

Rotary Youth Exchange student Gabe shares highlights from his year in Greenland in which he dispelled common myths and told tales, including how he (a former vegetarian) was introduced to the local culture when his first host family brought him on a caribou hunt and about a small, intricate, indigenous “tupilak” carved especially for him on his birthday, gifted to him by a fellow student. The connections he made with everyone were the most cherished memories.
