MEETING NEWSLETTER

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22nd, 2014
 
The meeting was called to order by Club President Mike Gora (right) pictured with visiting Rotarian Neil Haynie from the Rotary Central Club (they meet onTuesday, noon, at Capital Grille) who SANG the Rotary Four Way Test! Greetings as well to visiting Rotarian Joe Taranto from South Hampton, NY!
 
Mariana Oprea wrote a humble and thought provoking prayer and lead the Pledge to Allegiance
"Gracious Lord, bless us that we might strengthen our hearts and minds, to retain the ideals of Rotary and practice them at all times. Help us bolster our spirits through friendship and acquaintances both old and new, and constantly search for the chance to invite new friends to join with us too.  Let us hold our ethical standards high in our lives, in our homes. and in our work; and ever strive to advance goodwill, in our land and all over the earth.  Give us strength to serve wherever we are asked, in whatever capacity. and work like the burden lay solely with us, regardless of what the cause may be. And grant through our faith in our friends, in our clubs, and in You, that our efforts will help us better our lives, and through our lives, better Rotary.  Amen".

"Eternal Source of Life...we call you by many names...we know you in different ways...but we are one in Rotary as we are one in you. Through you we have been blessed not only with life but with love, joy and opportunity. Through Rotary, we would give thanks by reaching out to those who feel unloved, forgotten and without hope. Through you...whatever our creed, our culture, our country...we draw inspiration, purpose and support. Fill our minds with a vision, our hearts with courage, our bodies with enduring strength so that, through Rotary, we may bring love and joy and hope throughout our whole wide world.  This, then, is our Rotary Prayer...as we are one in our Source of Life and one in Rotary,may we strive to be one in the world of love and peace."
