Branching Out For Rotary

In 1912, the United States Government and Japan exchanged dogwood trees for cherry trees as a gesture of friendship between the two countries.
The 50 Ohio dogwood saplings were planted in Tokyo and 3,000 cherry saplings were planted along the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C.

President Taft’s wife admired cherry trees while living in the Philippines during her husband’s term as Governor. The Japanese gave the cherry trees as a gift to the United States for the aid given to Japan during the war with Russia in 1904-05.

SABA Meeting 3/11/2009

Tags:

The meeting attendance goal was met... The number of people attending the meeting doubled the attendance figure for February. A number of new faces with many new good ideas. Excellent... Thanks to everyone that attended, and I hope that we can continue to grow. Dr. Klepfer was on hand to help plan the dedication of the Rotary Club's Cherry Trees planting at Normandy Park. The trees are part of a historic exchange program with Japan. The tree planting was actually funded by a Rotary Club in Japan. Details on this effort will be detailed in a separate entry.

Due to some newly imposed restrictions / procedures we have found it necessary to cancel our April 4th Spring Planting. The event will now involve the dedication of the Cherry Trees, and our first attempt at an Easter Egg Hunt. Flyers have been made, and will now need to revised.

April 4th SABA has planned a multi-purpose event. The first part of the event will be a Spring Planting, and clean-up of Normandy Park. This will be to continue our planting program, and to shape of our prior year planting beds. At 11:OO we will be conducting a dedication of the Three Cherry Trees planted by the Rotary Club as part of a very interesting exchange program involving Japan. Following this we will be holding an Easter Egg Hunt. Plans are still be developed, but I wanted everyone to be able to reserve time on there calendar for this event.

Hit and Almost Run

Tags:

Yet another Alledged Drunken Driver incident on Cricket Ave. At 4:00 in the afternoon a small SUV side swiped my niece's car parked in front of our home. Fortunately my alert neighbor experienced in the sound of park cars be smashed ran outside, and saw the woman attempting to drive away, and flagged her down. The driver ackwardly walked up to our front door. She nearly fell into my wife, and explained that her speech was slurred because of a problem with her dentures, and her walking was a problem with her back. She presented her information an expired insurance card, and what we later learned was an incorrect name. She was about to leave and my daughter said she should wait, because the police had been contacted. I have not seen a copy of the police report to date so remember this is alledged.
