Greetings, Fellow Rotarians.
This message is especially for members of Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club, and to our friends at the Brooklyn, Verrazano, Flushing and New York Rotary clubs. I hope all of you are well! If not, we are here to help.
If anyone knows of any other rotarian besides Astrudge McLean and myself who were affected by the storm, please let us know what we can do to help out in these troubled times. If you have a close friend who also needs some assistance, this includes them too.
Sandra Dowling, this includes your friend out in Sea Gate. Together we can make a difference and accomplish more.
Rotarian Astrudge McLean’s home in Coney Island sustained foundational and extensive water damaged. The home in Sea Gate of a friend of Rotarian Sandra Dowling was damaged; I believe it is inhabitable. Homeowners insurance usually doesn’t cover everything. My home sustained damage from a fallen tree; however, I am covered and need no assistance.
Now is the time we can help. I am asking all the leaders of our adjoining Rotary clubs to set aside funds to help our fellow members and close acquaintances in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Service Above Self is our motto. Let us put it in motion now.
President, Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club
