Figure 1: Rotarians at the Farmory – April 29th
Hush, can you hear it?
The rustling in the grass,
Bringing you the welcome news that
Winter’s day is past.
Soft, can you feel it?
The warm caressing breeze,
Telling you the sticky buds
Are bursting on the trees.
Look, can you see them?
The primrose in the lane.
Now you must believe it –
Dear Green Bay Rotarians,
Spring is here again!
I think we have made it through another Wisconsin Winter!! The weather this weekend is delightful but reminds us of all the work we have yet to do to prepare for the warmer days ahead. So too, with Rotary, this is a busy time of the year. Our District conference is the weekend of the 17th, we have selected our Scholarship winners, our Free enterprise Award dinner is the 20th, and we are beginning to prepare for a new Rotary year. We will call it the Steve year – as Steve Mastalir will be leading our club and Steve Handrick will be leading our District. We are clearly in good hands.
As you wind up your Rotary year keep in mind Rotary Club’s guiding principles which include the Four-way Test. The other principles involve a commitment to Service above Self, which is channeled through Five Avenues of Service: Club, Vocational, Community, International and Youth. Consider new ways you can refresh your commitment to these Rotary ideals in the coming year.
Time to consider the Rotarian of the Year award!!
Nominations are now being accepted for 2019 Rotary Club of Green Bay Rotarian of the Year”. Applications need to be completed by May 17th, and the selection committee (Larry Sarver, Thom Cody, Julia Wallace, Barbie Paterson, and Eric DeJardins) will deliberate the following week. The award will be presented at this year’s changing of the Guard, tentatively scheduled for June 24th.
See the web pages for application or contact Larry Sarver.
