February/March 2024 Speakers
Kim Usselman - Director of the Middletown Library
On February 14th we were treated to Kim Usselman’s presentation and some interesting discussions.  Here is a summary of her presentation, “Middletown Library: A Journey Through Time and Vision for the Future” with a link to her slide presentation at the end.
A Conversation with Senator Jack Reed
The Middletown Rotary recently hosted a breakfast conversation featuring Senator Jack Reed at the Wyndham hotel on March 25th. Senator Reed began by touching on the upcoming arrival of NOAA and an expanded Coast Guard presence in the Middletown area. While these developments promise increased employment opportunities, they also contribute to the ongoing challenge of affordable housing in our community.
Bob Aldrich Speaks for Water for Cambodia
At our meeting on March 27th, Middletown Rotary member Bob Aldrich delivered a compelling update on the progress of the Water for Cambodia project. This initiative aims to enhance health and save lives in rural Cambodia by ensuring access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene. Its impact in the Samre Province has been substantial, with over 35,000 biosand filters and more than 700 latrines installed to date. These efforts have resulted in clean drinking water and notably improved health conditions for over 200,000 individuals in Cambodia.
