Ed Arnold, Laporte Indiana Rotary, was our guest speaker.   He joined Rotary in 1985 and has been assistant governor in his district.  He was on a Rotary Group Studies Program 35 years ago.  That program has been phased out but he was involved in projects to get sewing machines for women, mattresses for Mother Theresa, and Polio Plus.
  He had an outstanding memory in the Caribbean when he was asked to help a club move from one district to another.  Another was when he was in Calcutta, India and needed to catch a train.  He asked a stranger for directions, and the stranger was a Rotarian who took him to the train, changed his hotel reservations, and provided dinner.  In Mexico he asked about a plastic surgeon and a doctor and both turned out to be Rotarians who did really good jobs. 
  His message was to always include Rotary in your travels. Whenever you go anywhere, go to a Rotary meeting.  You never know who you might meet.
