Meeting Recap

Ravi Velu gave the invocation and led the pledge.


We had the seniors from the girls softball team visit us.  They finished 4th in their conference last year, and they have already started training to be ready to play in the spring.

New Member Bio

Hunter James gave his new member bio.  Hunter is a third generation Rotarian, his grandfather Dick James and father Bart James having been in the Rotary Club.  He is also an Eagle Scout.
Hunter started cutting grass and landscaping during high school.  He went to the University of Findlay for Environmental Safety and Occupational Health.  He graduated in 2020, the same year he added a concrete business, and then in 2023 added an automotive shop, which helps as he has 12-13 trucks, trailers and all the mowers and landscape equipment.
He is engaged, getting married very soon to a pharmacist at the Cleveland Clinic that he met at school.

Our speaker was Dr Ramasamy Sharma, a scholar of Sanatana Dharma, which is the real name of Hinduism.  The name Hindustan was given to the area by outsiders based on the Indus river.
The traditions date back to around 3000 BC and are based on the different paths people can take, and on the natural cycles and divisions of society, taking into account the general human goals, as well as the individual personality of each person.
