Potomac-Bethesda Rotarians served up a birthday party for the homeless women at Sophia House in Rockville on July 24.  Thanks to Rotary District Governor Bob Parkinson who attended.


Governor Bob Parkinson sent a note to President Nabil Bedewi and Dr. Noel Howard:  "Thanks for inviting me and letting me help with the birthday party for the women of Sophia’s House!  A wonderful experience and the efforts of your club make me particularly proud to be a Rotarian. I was struck by the courtesy of the women who are down and out – very friendly and warm to talk to.  The warmness of one’s heart, the sadness that it is that way for some of our society, and the determination one has to continue to provide service are all feelings of hope that someday we will all enjoy a modicum of the fruits that our society can provide. I call these Rotary moments, and you can be proud that you did your part to create this Rotary moment for all of us."
