Next Meeting & Other Stories
Club President Beverly Brown will conduct a Club Assembly for our meeting February 8, 2016.  President Beverly has identified at least one topic we expect to discuss: a project proposed by Stan Newman.  Recognizing the creativity and sense of humor Stan has, we can expect an interesting proposal with some challenge and fun.  Additionally, we should expect to discuss our Rotary Foundation goals and progress toward achievement.
 

 
Our puzzling member Stan Newman plans to entertain us with Mental Calisthenics at our meeting February 15, 2016.  Stanley Newman has been the editor of the Newsday Sunday Crossword since March, 1988, and editor of the Newsday daily Crossword since January, 1992.  A native of Brooklyn, New York, he is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Brooklyn College, where he majored in mathematics, and he received a master’s degree in statistics from Rutgers University.
 
Today, the Newsday Crossword is syndicated worldwide to over 200 daily, Sunday and Internet newspapers. As a puzzle creator, Stan's work has appeared regularly in Prevention, People, Sport and Business Week magazines. And as a puzzle solver, he holds the world's record, set in 1996 under Guinness Book conditions, for the fastest completion of a New York Times crossword: 2 minutes, 14 seconds.

Honorary Member Christine Bogdanowicz-Bindert for many years has been attending meetings with us while she spends her winter seasons here in Boca Raton.  Recently Christine had an opportunity to assist a non government organization (NGO) providing help for Syrian war refugees in Zaatari Municipality Jordan.  We had the pleasure of hearing about her experience during our meeting, January 25, 2016.
 
Christine provided an emotionally stimulating perspective on the plight of displaced and refugee Syrians, especially those currently located in Zaatari Municipality Jordan.  With many of her own pictures and stories, she told us about an effective movement started by students interested in helping those in need.  Christine introduced us to the efforts in progress by Middle East Children's Institute (MECI).
