ROTARY CLUB OF BOCA RATON
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12th, 2014
The meeting was called to order by Club President Mike Gora singing with Jim Gavrilos and Ken Samu.
Ken Samu gave a humble and thought provoking prayer and lead the Pledge to Allegiance
"Don't Quit. When things go wrong, as they sometimes will. When the road you're trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low, and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but do not quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, and many a failure turns about, When he might have have won had he stuck it out, Don't give up though the pace seems slow, You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint on the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So stick to the fight when when you're hardest hit, It's when things seem worse, that you must not quit" KRISTONE
