Dear Rotarians and Friends,
A little rain finds its way into everyone’s life occasionally and we got some much needed real rain early this Monday morning.  We really didn’t need the rain cloud to include the Browns and Indians both losing yesterday, but our hope and aspirations can’t be deterred by one day of rain.
So I guess the sports metaphor is to keep working to be better and win the next challenge in our daily lives.  The help we all provide in our local communities is an important piece of the fabric that supports Rocky River, Lakewood and beyond.  Our annual Fund Raiser which is February 9, 2018,
is an important part of our effort by providing us with the funds needed for our programs.  Please think about your contribution to this effort and what you can do to make the Fund Raiser a success.
There is never a shortage of things happening in our communities that we do or could be involved in:
