In the News
Rotarians and their dogs enjoyed a Yappy Hour at the Bea Arthur Dog Park sponsored by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and hosted by Rotarian Rachel Bellis. Pictured are Jennifer and Chris Palestrant with their new dog. It was surprisingly cool along the Elizabeth River and under the shaded pergola where there were refreshments. The more adventurous dogs enjoyed chasing balls in the river. Joining the fun were Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, his wife Pam and their dog. 
 

 
It was a hot night at Harbor Park when Rotarians from District 7600 came for a night of baseball to support Rotary's Polio Plus initiative. The Tides may have lost but club members enjoyed an evening of fun for a good cause. Those who brought fans had the right idea! 
 

 
Jim Kitz, Sharon Laderberg and Chuck Spence are enjoying  the opportunity to be of assistance.
 
ForKids Good Mojo thrift shop has great new items for sale thanks to the organizing skills of Rotary Club of Norfolk volunteers who spent their lunch hour helping this organization that helps homeless children and their families. 
 
 

 
It was a day of joy on July 19 for Lori Miller, executive director of the REACH Foundation, when she learned that her organization had won a $20,000 grant from Rotary District 7600 that will be augmented by $2,000 from the four Rotary Clubs that sponsored the grant. The funding will provide books, equipment, furnishings, craft supplies and volunteers to read and give books to children living in area homeless and domestic violence shelters. From left, Bryce Burton, president of the Rotary Club of Norfolk, announces the grant as Miller reacts. Celebrating with her are presidents of the co-sponsoring clubs: Pat Edwards, Rotary Club of Town Center; Calvin Vander Molen, Rotary Club of Portsmouth, and Amy Kurtz, Rotary Club of Virginia Beach. 
 

 
 
Bill Eisenbeiss (left) organized an interesting tour of the Barry Robinson Center at its 32-acre campus for 15 Rotarians. They enjoyed lunch and learned about how the 83-year-old residential center in Norfolk helps children from ages 6 through 17. Residents come from throughout region and the world to get treatment for emotional issues. Many of them are children of military families. This was the first optional club outing for the 2016-17 Rotary year.
