My wife and I attended the latest Chamber of Commerce ABO event. I met the new Liberty Hyde Bailey director who lives in Grand Haven. She is a Rotary member there but because of schedule cannot participate here as she wished that she could.  I also had an interesting conversation with a woman at the straw market in Nassau. She was wearing a Rotary cloth mask. She was not in Rotary but had helped with the local vaccination effort down there.
