The Rotary Four Way Test

Is it the truth?  Is it fair to all concerned?  Will it build goodwill and better friendships?  Will it be beneficial to all concerned

Rotary Reflection

For food in a world where many walk in hunger
For peace in a world where many walk in fear
For friends in a world where many walk alone
And for the opportunity to serve others through Rotary,
May we be truly thankful!

The Loyal Toast 

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Queen of Canada!

Member Sharing

Fun Master - Ron Pols

Ron once gain emptied our pockets  ( all for a good cause, of course ), getting $ for pins and badges; President Rick, Hakeem, and Robert Reid had to stand and show they were wearing  blue jeans and were fined for inappropriate attire.  Ron introduced Paul Van Nest to the club - Paul is a American Civil war buff. A fine to all who have never been with Paul to Gettysburg on a civil war excursion (only Terry Hicks was exempt).

Happy/Sad Bucks

Meeting notes by Ron Pols 
Pat Brown - A Life in Rotary
Pat summarized her many years with Rotary International – the joy of meeting other people, whether it be locally, or, beyond borders.
She has never regretted taking on any role, or, the many positions she has chaired over the years, from President, Secretary, District Conference Chair,  District Rotaract Chair, and many more. Pat encouraged everyone to “ get involved “ and take on a leadership role within the club, District, or Rotary International.  Pat believes it has been a tremendous learning experience – and opened her eyes to the world.
Pat has many fond memories of Rotary and said it has become an important part of her life, – the “icing” on the cake – meeting Arnold, her partner for life.
Michelle thanked Pat with the traditional loaf of bread this morning.
