Dear DG Lara  
The Rotary Club of Portsmouth had its first meeting today at the Riverside Restaurant in Picard.  I am happy to report there were 12 in attendance including 3 visitors. 5 members could not be present at this meeting, so if all were present we would have had 17 in attendance.  
President Marvlyn of the Rotary Club of Dominica, Roseau was our speaker for the day and she did an excellent job.  
We read an email from DG Lara officially designating "Provisional Status" for our club along with words of encouragement.  
We also live-streamed an extremely informative and well done video from Rotary International's YouTube channel concerning a Rotary Foundation partnership grant that is making a difference in India.  
We encourage all to visit our club.  We meet on Thursdays at the Riverside Restaurant in Portsmouth as follows:
1st and 3rd Thursday    12 noon
3rd Thursday            5:30 p.m.
4th Thursday            Committee meetings
Lunch is a buffet with coffee or tea for $40.00.  We alternate Italian, Chinese and Local cuisine.  All agreed the food was excellent today.
Daniel C. Hopkins
President, Rotary Club of Portsmouth, Provisional
