The organization meets the second Thursday of each month at the North Syracuse Public library at 6:30 p.m.
The lectures usually get between 30-50 attendees.
Tom was ROTC in college and served for a period of time in the service.
He is very passionate about promoting the history of our country’s military.
He says that history tends to repeat itself and history connects us to today.
He gave several examples of this.
The Rotarians enjoyed his very informative program.
The Noon Rotary Club meets at the Tavern On The Lock each Thursday at noon.
