Phyllis Lehrer reminded us that the Rotary Club Fair starts Wednesday, May 25th (at Town Commons), until Sunday, May 29th. Please come and be supportive.

Today's speaker was Kymberly Newberry.

Kymberly just graduated from  Mt. Holyoke College. She was a Frances Perkins scholar, majoring in International Relations & Foreign Policy with emphasis on Iran.
Her Topic was: "Faith Ringgold and Shirin Neshat A New Place from which to Speak"
Kymberly talked of the US and race in the 1960"s and Iran in Revolution 1979 and the pespective of these two visual artists interpretations of events.
The talk was veru informative  and insightful. Many questions were asked and great talking points happened.

Nancy Brose won the wine and Sylvia Burruto won the $10.
