[In 1982 my father, Joseph Gottfried, gave a speech to the West Palm Beach Rotary Club about propaganda. His friend and colleague, who was there at the time, recently forwarded a copy of the speech to my mother, saying it seemed prophetic. I've attached it here. JG-Propaganda ]

I am the sponsor of the Future Medical Professionals Club for the 2015-16 school year. We have "folded" Sharks Blood into that group.  (Whether as a sub-committee or what-not has not yet been decided).  In general, there will be a blood drive every 8 weeks starting from the first couple of weeks of school. Once they are scheduled you'll be able to find them on the school calendar.

Holocaust Awareness - On 3/4/2010 I received an email from my aunt with details about a Polish Catholic woman who saved thousands of Jewish children from death during the Holocaust. Given that my parents are survivors, I tend to think I am well informed, but I had not heard of her, but after some research I discovered that the Irena Sender story, as portrayed in the email was true. Rather than forward the email, which would, I'm sure, be deleted by most, I'm posting a link to the story here, where it will remain part of my web pages.
