Bob Murphy was inspired by participating in the Providence Rotary Club project to distribute dictionaries to 3rd grade students in Providence schools. To see the appreciation of the students and staff at the schools on receipt of the dictionaries truly inspires one to do more of these type of projects. Also inspiring was the teamwork of the many Rotarians to make the project a success. 
Club member Jackie Gourd is to have open heart surgery this week.
Richard Applebaum presented a flag from his visit to the Rotary Club Of Aruba on his vacation there. The club is debating opening membership to women and has literacy and clean water as major projects.
Priya Banerjee said 3 more computer mice are needed for donation to the Kizirian School. Lynn Bruso stepped up to say she would provide them.
Randy Dittmar advised there are 6 schools left for distribution of dictionaries to third graders and requested volunteers to complete the project.
On Thursday March 14th Rotary After Dark is sponsoring an evening at the Barker Playhouse in Providence for a presentation of the play "Over The River And Through the Woods ". The play will be at 7:30PM, preceded by refreshments at 6:30 and a presentation by Chris Ley, one of the country’s top up-and-coming standup comics, at 7. Reservations, $35 per person, can be purchased online at, or see Rob at the front desk.

Lisa Bigney reported on programs offered by The Rhode Island Tutorial And Educational Services (RITES) to address learning disabilities of all types in persons of all ages.
Two of the major problems addressed are Dyslexia and Attention Deficit Disorder. One of the distinctive ways these problems are approached is the "Multisensory" approach in which sight, sound and touch elements are combined. An intensive five-week summer program called "Code Breakers" has students participate in a Readers Theater.
Covering Rhode Island and parts of Massachusetts and Connecticut, RITES conducts over 6,000 sessions per year in 65 cities and towns.
RITES started a program last year with 112 students that is now nationwide, called the National Summer Learning Day.
