Short hair detention: the power of love in the face of horror
Short hair detention: the power of love in the face of horror

“Short Hair Detention” chronicles Laux’s experiences as a survivor of the Khmer Rouge. Complete with emotional narrative from the perspective of a young teenage girl, Laux candidly discusses her life that was dictated by fear throughout the four years she endured the Cambodian genocide. 

About the author 
Channy Chhi Laux was just 13 when the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia. In 1979, Laux immigrated to the U.S. as a refugee. Without knowing a word of English, she attended high school in Lincoln, Nebraska, and earned two undergraduate degrees and a master’s degree. Laux worked as an engineer in the aerospace and biotech industries for 30 years.

Roast & Toast (debunking)
Roast & Toast (debunking)
It is Roast & Toast TIME, otherwise known as 'debunking' ANDREW's SUCCESSFUL PRESIDENTIAL YEAR.
 
The Rotary year runs from July 1 through June 30, which means that President Andrew term is nearly over. It is a Rotary tradition that the last meeting of the year be an dinner event that recognizes the outgoing presidents successes (and maybe a few goofs) and welcomes the incoming President - in our case Marty Fishmen. 
 
A regular feature of our club's debunking dinner is a lighthearted skit that makes a little fun at the expense of the outgoing president. This year's skit will review some of the formative experiences that have made Andrew the person we know today.
