Salisbury Rotary Club (SRC) members attending the 8/9 luncheon meeting heard two presentations. The first, Joseph Brennan of Canaan, was one of six recent Housatonic Valley Regional HS graduating Seniors who received a SRC scholarship. In expressing his appreciation to the Club, he indicated he will be using it to attend Seton Hall University (NJ), majoring in Diplomacy & Foreign Policy.  Next, Aline Libassi, serving her third term as President of the Talum Rotary Club in Talum, Mexico, spoke of the many programs and projects of their small club of only thirteen members.  Noting there are two Talums, one being the tourist destination with its beaches and expensive hotels & resorts, and the other being characterized by poverty and many needs, she shared their Rotary Club’s diversity of programs to help the “2nd Talum,”ranging from providing water fountains in the school for the children to have potable water, healthcare for diabetics, getting computers for students, restoring the sea turtle population, to programs addressing violence in relationships and healthcare information on maturation to developing teenage girls, and more! The Salisbury Rotary Club has financially supported getting water fountains and computers for the schools.  Aline, dividing her time between living in Talum and Falls Village, has been a SRC program speaker before and worked with the SRC in 2019 on the Murder Mystery Dinner Theater fundraiser production at Noble Horizons, to raise money for the water fountains.
