Janika LeMaitre will present:  "Handling Gender-Neutral Pronouns with Style"
 
DESCRIPTION
We use pronouns to refer to a person without using their name. The most common pronouns, he/she, specifically refer to a person's gender. For queer, gender non-conforming, non-binary or transgender people these labels may not fit, causing stress and anxiety. Proper pronoun etiquette demonstrates your acceptance of persons displaying these characteristics.
 
 
 
Our member speaker is Leila Brandao dos Santos, who is 23 years of age and resides in Boston's North End. Leila immigrated to the USA from Portugal at the age of three and is now pursuing the "American dream". During this time she persevered, gained valuable experience, and plans to pursue a medical degree.

Rotary is where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change. We connect people:   Rotary unites more than a million people. 1.4 million members and 46,000 clubs. Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. We transform communities:    We take action locally and globally. 16 million volunteer hours each year. Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions. We solve problems:   No challenge is too big for us. Nearly 3 billion children immunized against polio. For more than 110 years, we’ve bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, and fight disease. Our causes: Promoting Peace - Fighting Disease - Providing Clean Water - Saving Mothers and Children - Supporting Education - Growing Local Economies - Protecting The Environment Join Leaders:   Club activities, social events, and volunteer projects offer networking opportunities that build personal and professional connections. And Rotarians can extend those networks by visiting other clubs around the globe.

Our friends at Brookline Rotary Club extended an invitation to us to travel with them on a Danube River Cruise in October 2022.
It looks like a wonderful cruise to enjoy with old and new Rotary friends.

Did you know that Kyoto and Boston have been sister cities since 1959? Kyoto is also Boston’s first-ever Sister City! To celebrate the 60th anniversary, the Rotary Clubs of Kyoto South and Boston #7 held an international friendship ceremony at which a Japanese Stewartia tree was planted in the Boston Public Garden, near the Make Way for Ducklings statues near the corner of Beacon and Charles Street. The event was held Saturday, April 27 2019 in the Boston Public Garden in conjunction with JapanFestivalBoston.org.
