Well, this last month has been a full one with a visit from our District Governor Tom Berkedal and his wife Laura. I am happy to report that the club passed muster and we are good for another year! In all seriousness, we were commended for all the things that we do as a club, for the work se do as a foundation, for the implementation of the Rotary branding, for our club service and involvement and so much more. I was pleased to be able to share YOUR efforts in making this club the exceptional club that it is. Thank you for making the annual Governors visit an enjoyable one.Write comment (0 Comments)
Well, October was a whirlwind of a month for me personally, which included a trip back to Wales to celebrate the life of my Grandmother who passed after many months of decline. The time with family friends and reflection on her life was refreshing. It was clear that she lived life to the fullest and had an impact on many people through her quick wit….. a family member described her as… “a rare person, and personality, to have as a grandmother! Indefatigable--with the hardiest of constitutions and a farmer's work ethic. Loving and big-hearted, in all her unique ways. Endearingly comical and positively game. She enjoyed a good laugh, a good story, and a good time. In her company, I usually took myself a little less seriously.” How true… she was one of a kind. I sincerely appreciate all the support from my friends at Rotary during this time.Write comment (0 Comments)
October is here, and just a few days into the months a lots has already taken place. This past weekend....... I had not only the opportunity, but the distinct privilege, to spend the weekend with some of the most inspiring young people I believe I have ever met as part of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards for District 6220.

We shared experiences, we laughed, we cried, we moved out of our comfort zones (yes a high ropes activity among other things), we learned, we developed an intense level of trust in a very short duration, we made lasting friendships. I can tell you if you have any doubts as to who will be our leaders of tomorrow - please rest assured we are in very capable hands.
I hope this newsletter finds you all well.
I am, as you can see, changing up the delivery of our clubs information. I am planning on issuing a correspondence to each club member in this format at the beginning of each month. It is structured around Rotary's 5 Avenues of Service; Club Administration and Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International and Humanitarian Service and finally Youth Service. These Avenues of Service you will see repeated throughout our club, everything from the format of the Board Agendas to the pull down on the new Website (when it is completed)! I will endeavor to keep the material in this newsletter current and relevant to each of you and make it easy for you to reach out to fellow Rotarians, find more information on a topic that you may find of interest. (I will still use the database email system to issue information to each of you between newsletters as necessary).
