The author of The Peace Tree from Hiroshima: The Little Bonsai with a Big Story, Ms. Moore began her writing career in a US Senator’s office and worked as a journalist focusing on stories about families and children. She and her family live close to Washington, DC’s National Arboretum where she first encountered her story’s protagonist —a bonsai tree that is almost 400 years old and miraculously survived the bombing of Hiroshima. She believed that the true story of a Japanese family's devotion to the tree and their decision to donate it to the United States in an act of reconciliation and friendship would inspire and delight young readers. Ms. Moore is originally from the Maine coast, which shares with Japan a wealth of islands that are dotted with magnificent pine trees.

Appointed on 18 July 2016, Mr. Lynn is the first career member of the Foreign Ministry to hold the position of Myanmar’s Ambassador to the United States in 50 years. Despite his long, distinguished career in international affairs, Mr. Lynn’s early work was not in diplomacy but rather in geology, the field of his Bachelor’s degree studies at the University of Yangon. He joined his country’s government in 1982 as an assistant engineering geologist in the Ministry of Irrigation. He moved to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1983. During the 1980s, Mr. Lynn served as a third secretary in the ministry, as a consul in Hong Kong and in the embassy in South Africa. While working on his Master’s degree in Public Policy at the National University of Singapore during the mid-1990s, he led the Foreign Ministry’s Department of Political Affairs. From 2004 to 2007, he was a counselor to Burma’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations. By 2011, he was the Director General for the Department of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Affairs. During the months before his assignment in Washington, Mr. Lynn had become Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. His diplomatic service to the United States comes at a crucial time as Myanmar experiences the challenges of democratization and re-enters the international community.

NEW LOCATION ON WALTER REED CAMPUS: Please note that Bingo Night has now been moved into the newly completed USO Warrior and Family Center, 4565 Taylor Road.  Multipurpose Room A and B. Please park ONLY in the America Garage. 

Join Rotary and Rotaract club members in providing an evening of bingo entertainment for recovering soldiers and their visiting family members at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (formerly known as Bethesda Naval Hospital) on the third Thursday of every month.

Dinner and set-up begin at 5:00 p.m. with the start of bingo play at 6:00 p.m.
 

As those attending must be on the security clearance at the hospital's entrance, please register online and/or contact Shelton Williams no later than 3 p.m. on the Monday prior to the month's event. You will need to have a driver's license or other photo ID to show the security guard and the name registered must match your name as shown on the ID. If you have not previously done so, please include your driver's license number in the comments field when you register online.

Arriving By Metro: The easiest way to come to the hospital is by Metro, as the main entrance is located directly across from the Medical Center station on the Red Line. Cross Wisconsin Ave., turn left and walk north to the North Gate.

Arriving By Car: The hospital's address is 8901 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20889. From DC, proceed north on Wisconsin Avenue just beyond downtown Bethesda and past the intersection with Jones Bridge Road. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center will be on your right (most noticeable is the tall central building). Enter by the second or North Entrance. Please keep in mind that traffic on Wisconsin Avenue in front of the hospital can be heavy during the evening rush hour so you may want to allow extra time to reach the entrance. Please park ONLY in the America Garage, as parking in other lots may may make you subject to ticketing or towing. 

At the Gate: Present your photo ID to the guard in the Security Booth and then proceed to the USO Warrior & Family Center, 4565 Taylor Road, Multipurpose Rooms A& B (see base map here). If driving, you must park in the American Parking Garage. Cars parked in other areas may be towed.
