FRIDAY, October 31/97 -12:30 pm Chateau Laurier - ADAM ROOM Company of Musical Theatre We will be treated to very lively entertainment with 2 lead singers and 10 dancers who are part of the cast from the musical, West Side Story at Centrepointe Theatre. These young people ranging in the age of 17-20 have been working very hard and are looking forward to performing for our Club members. As well, we will have a special guest , District Governor James Rowney, as he makes his official visit to Ottawa.

On the Menu: Portuguese Style Cod, Potatoes and Vegetables (or Fruit Plate, or Vegetarian....just ask the waiters when they come to your table) Oct 24 meeting ...Steven Violetta gave us a brief overview of how the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club assist those in the community through their Youth & Community Programs. Their programs are aimed at both the youth in and out of hockey and focus on education and academic achievement. Their Partners in Caring Program touches many children and also helps charities through their fundraising as we are participating in on November 17/97. I have no fear with the great line up we saw today.

As well as our other guests, please be sure to introduce yourself to these prospective members and make them feel welcome. Remember, many guests are also prospective members.

WHAT IS THE HANDS-ON COMMITTEE UP TO??? Very quietly, behind the scenes, a number of members of the club have been getting themselves very dirty.....with hands-on projects. At the old Immaculata High School they put up drywall, sanded and painted new rooms for Investing in Women’s Worth an organization for women who are in training for future business. If you can help out, please do not hesitate to call Bob Horlick.

I guess we take a few things for granted in life... If we could shrink the Earth’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like this... There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western Hemisphere and 8 Africans 51 would be female, 49 would be male; 70 would be non-white; 30 white; 70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian 50% of the entire world’s wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people and all 6 would live in the United States; 80 would live in substandard housing 70 would be unable to read 50 would suffer from malnutrition 1 would be near death, 1 would be near birth only 1 would have a college or university education no one would own a computer When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes glaringly apparent...
