Today’s speaker was Dr. Pat LaRocco, past president and current member of the Rotary Club of Fair Lawn.   Dr. Pat spoke about her recent trip to Malaysia in support of Alliance for Smiles (AFS). AFS was founded in October of 2004 by six members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco.
 
Dr. Pat explained that AFS’s mission it to forever improve and transform the lives of children and communities impacted by cleft lip and palate by providing free comprehensive treatment, while training and equipping local teams to sustainably provide quality, long-term care. AFS sends medical teams to sites around the globe to perform corrective surgery, and to create treatment centers where the protocol of cleft treatment in the United States could be replicated.

On Tuesday August 1, 2023 members of the Paramus Rotary Club participated at the National Night Out event held on the grounds behind the Paramus Public Library and the Rotary Club of Paramus Band Shell, Gazebo, and Peace Park. 
It was a great opportunity to meet 100s of community members, participating areas businesses, community leaders, and members from many other community organizations. It was definitely another great way to share information about Rotary to inquiring attendees stopping at the Rotary Club of Paramus tent/table and hand out Rotary Brochures, Rotary themed coloring books & crayons, as well as candy, water, chips and glow sticks.  
It was a great information sharing opportunity and also……IT WAS FUN.
