Home Page Stories
Our guest, Garry Kozak of GK Consulting spoke at our Rotary Luncheon on November 6th about the underwater maritime history off the local coast of MA & NH. GK Consulting specializes in undersea search and survey specifically for shipwrecks and aircraft. Garry was recommended to us by a board member of the Maritime Museum.
 
His talk was fascinating! We learned about how he works to find a shipwreck, how he came to play key roles in the discovery of the USS Indianapolis and the Spanish Galleon San Jose!
 
You can read more about it on their website. Thank you, Garry!

The Newburyport Rotary Club's annual Santa Parade is being held on Sunday, November 25, 2018.  Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive via the Coast Guard cutter and will be escorted around downtown by the Rotary elves and helpers ending at Market Square to light the Newburyport Chamber's Christmas tree.
On Tuesday, December 12, the Newburyport Rotary held their annual holiday charity luncheon at Andiamo Restuarant.  The Newburyport Rotary donated to the following charities:  Boys & Girls Club of Lower Merrimack Valley, Newburyport Community Service, Firehouse Center for the Arts, Opportunity Works, Pettengill House, Link House and the Salvation Army.
District  Governor, Dave Gardner, made a joint visit to Newburyport and Amesbury Rotary Clubs on Thursday, September 28. Dave's lovely wife, Joan, accompanied him.
 
We were also privileged to have Bob Wood, District Governor Elect, and Joan Arsenault, District Governor Nominee, attend. Shown in the picture are Joan Arsenault, Dianne Webster (Amesbury President), Marion Spark, Dave Gardner and Bob Wood (left to right).
Lunch was held at Vasa Restaurant, Bridge Road, Salisbury.
 
Dave showed slide shows of each club's activities and fundraisers which were fun to watch. Many members had Happy Dollars and they were given to Dave to donate to the Rotary Foundation. He also addressed Rotary's challenge of retaining and gaining members. He challenged each of us to invite three people to a meeting within the next quarter.
