Our club was pleased to have District 7230 Membership Chairman Hugh Maynard-Reid as guest speaker at our January 26th luncheon meeting at the yacht club.  It was a "motivational" presentation, one which was full of inspiration and high energy.

Special guests included District Governor Loren Russell, Governor Nominee Garrett Capobianco and Area Governor Sandy Wolstein.
Larchmont Rotary repeated as the champion team among all Westchester Rotary clubs for most money raised for the Alzheimer's Association in 2023. Westchester Rotarians raised over $14,000 in total. We reclaimed the Rotary trophy on January 17th at the Awards Ceremony held at the new Berkemeier Center at the Wartburg in Mount Vernon.  Nationally, our team came in 16th and individually, Lester Nathan came in 21st among Rotarians.
 
Stephen Fine, founder and president of the Melanoma Education Foundation, gave club members an informative presentation on melanoma on December 1st.  He explained the differences between the three types of skin cancer, basal sell, squamous and melanoma, then went into further depth about the subcategories.
 
He also described how to detect skin cancers, prevention and treatment.  For more information about melanoma, he provided us with several links to websites and online videos.
 
Debby Miller, a clinical social worker from the Larchmont/Mamaroneck Counseling Center, was the guest speaker at our November 17th meeting. The Center is involved in our community and schools, providing substance abuse education, identifying and offering help to at-risk kids and running Life Skills and other groups for kids.

Her first topic was Internet betting, which began two years ago in New York and has changed the gambling landscape. There now exist thousands of gambling sites.  Their advertising is aimed at children and young adults. One study revealed that 39.5% of kids 12 to 17 have gambled in the past year.
 
Two Guest Speakers Join Us for Our October 27th Meeting
 
Our club was delighted to have not one, but two very different speakers at our luncheon meeting at the yacht club on October 27th.  It proved to be very informative.
 
Our first speaker, Ruslan Alikperov, is the president-elect for the Kharkiv Direct Help International Rotary Club of Ukraine.  He was traveling across the United States on an 80 day trip to raise awareness and funds for those in need from his country.  He has been organizing projects, along with his team, to help those in need.  Their direct help website allows a donor to choose a specific person to support with a monthly donation.
Mamaroneck High School senior Max Robinson was honored with Larchmont Rotary's annual Blum Award for his involvement with Cakes for Communities, which provides birthday cakes and desserts for local children and families in Mamaroneck and surrounding communities. A celebratory luncheon was held at the Larchmont Yacht Club on October 13, 2023.  The Blum Award recognizes MHS students for their initiative, leadership and creative pursuit of making a difference in their local community and beyond.
 
Club President Lester Nathan and Treasurer Marion Anderson welcomed club members and guests.  Marian White, Club Rotary Foundation Chair, followed with the story behind the Blum Award and then introduced Max Robinson.
