Greetings Rotarians,
I realized this weekend that this coming Wednesday will be our last club meeting for the year.  What a wonderful year this has been. What a great opportunity we have to be a gift to the world. In July, at our first meeting, I asked each of you to write on a piece of paper how you were going to be a gift to the world this year.
I ask at this time, as the year draws to a close, for each of you to think back upon that commitment that you wrote down and to once again re-commit to being a gift to the world. I thank each of you for the gift and the light that you have been to me this past year. So many of you have given of your time, talents and presence so freely to this club. Thank you for that service.
May this holiday season be a memorable one for all of you and for your families. May we all look forward to 2016 and continuing to be, “A Gift to the World”. We have a lot of work still to do next year. I thank the Board and the Officers of this club and the leadership and direction that they provide.
May each of you truly enjoy a Holiday season of light and may 2016 be a year of continued growth for each of you. I thank you as always for this opportunity to be your president and look forward to continuing to work with all of you in performing service above self in 2016.
If you haven’t been to a meeting for a while please make an effort this week to attend. The director of the “Singing Angels” will be our performer. We will sing songs, exchange a wrapped book, (please bring a wrapped book to share) and have a visitor from the North Pole. I hope to see all of you this Wednesday. Happy Holidays to all of you!
