Three hoops a holler and a couple of cheers,
This worthy bunch has been around 74 years.
Times have changed,
And men and women’s roles have been re-arranged,
But certainly some qualities are constant and persevere,
Even with responsibilities of husband, family and career,
They managed to organize, meet and make sure good works were done,
And leave a little time for fellowship and fun.
And lord knows,
We’ve all had a laugh at their over the top fashion shows.
Today, there 18 of them or so,
Linda, Ann, Billie, Beverly and Jo,
Betty, Deloris, LaDoyce, Lenora and Jerri,
Gayle, Carol, Louise, Margie and Mary
Paula, Willien, and Mrs. Brashears who uses G in her Gerri.
Now a call has come saying they are a no longer a group, it’s the end of the game.
But, now they’ll be same folks in a different troop….. a rose by any other name.
If enduring friendships, loyalty and good works are always part of your plans,
Then you are member of our Rotarians of the Month, the Harrisburg Rotary Ann’s.
It’s been nearly 12 years,
Since he joined his Rotary peers,
But now he’s shiftin’ gears,
And he’s pickin’ up speed,
Revin’ up for his coming year, ready to proceed.
He knows what it takes to succeed.
He was there for Rudy when our Boat Ride had a need.
And was almost a Robinhood in tights,
Helping at St. Christopher’s school with the Early Act Knights.
Getting it going, things are really beginning to click,
Passing out school dictionaries, and making it quick.
With all his helpers: James, Shonda, Richard, Arlette, Audrey and Dick,
Along with Becca, Christian, John, Janderine, Rudy and Rick,
He’s off to a great start, taking his responsibilities to heart,
Now it’s up to the rest of us to do our part,
Marching forward in our Rotary Parade singing our tune-a,
Behind our new leader-to-be and Rotarian of the Month, Ron Acuna
