The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill enjoyed World War II veteran and author Paul C. Grassey as the guest speaker during its weekly meeting Aug. 6 at the Richmond Hill City Center.
Members heard from the author of “It’s Character that Counts.”
Grassey, a Savannah resident who is in his 90s, explained the six pillars of character in his book while sharing stories about his friends and fellow soldiers. He currently speaks and serves as a tour guide at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force in Savannah. Proceeds from his book contribute to the museum’s work. For more information or to purchase a copy of his book, go to www.shop.mightyeight.org
The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force and the Chatham County School District have developed a partnership to help local schools implement a new educational initiative, Character Counts. The museum raises funds to help support the program, which promotes the importance of character to students.
Club President Rich DeLong conducted the meeting and announced new initiatives to take place throughout the upcoming quarter. The next meeting is scheduled for 12.30 p.m. today at the City Center. Speaker Charles Bowen will present “Tips on Keeping Your Business Lawsuit-Proof.”
