Iraq history recalled for Rotary Club
By Barbara Gartman
Monitor Staff Writer

GUN BARREL CITY–Iraqi history and the Muslim religion are not easily understood by most Americans and those of the Christian faith.
Rotarian Dale Molander was the keynote speaker at the weekly Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake.
Molander gave a brief history of Iraq from it’s beginning in the 1920s as Britain drew up lines that defined the country’s borders to the religious lines that have separated its people for many hundreds of years.
He listed the neighboring countries: Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Kuwait and Iran along with a short description of their styles of government.
In other business, club president Barbara Turner announced:
• Rotarians will be volunteering as bell ringers for the Salvation Army Saturday, Dec. 2.
• the food committee members have been chosen. Members include Bruce Easley, Russell Marshall, Ronnie Davis and Colleen Hinckley.
The committee will try to choose a varied menu for the weekly luncheon.
• October attendance was 77 percent. Turner said those who have missed a meeting still have time to attend another rotary meeting or to make it up on the Internet.
• there will be no Rotary meeting Friday, Nov. 24, the day after Thanksgiving.
• the first book give-away for Eustace Primary School is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 17.
