Can you believe that another year has almost slipped by?
Do you remember all the New Year resolutions you had made last year?
How many did you keep? I know that I was pretty good, but I can’t say that all the resolutions I made where completed. It is the same for some Rotary members. The New Year begins with a lot of enthusiasm and good intent but somehow we get waylaid.
Your Club President and committee members work hard on providing you with a good program, but it is your engagement and commitment that is needed. What is the definition of CLUB? (To contribute to a joint or common purpose.) We have a common purpose and our goal is simple
Let’s stay on track and make a New Year’s resolution to work as a team to have fun at our meetings and build membership and in that way we “Engage Rotary and Change lives”
Let us all make a New Year’s resolution and that is to enjoy life, maybe slow down and make the most of the last month of 2013. December is a time to be festive.
We need to spend time with our families whatever religion you may practice, relax, sit back and enjoy the holiday lights in the neighborhood that sparkle and make the night seem a little friendlier.
Let us at the same time remember all the people around the world who have so much less, both in wealth and material items and then to top it all are devastated by drought, cyclones and other natural disasters. The people of the Philippines need our help, and our District is donating $5000. Many Rotary clubs are also making donations. I am very appreciative of their kindness and generosity.
When you open your holiday gifts, or just kick back and watch TV as the last minutes of 2013 count down, you will feel better knowing in your heart that you have also given a gift. By being a member of our great Rotary organization and showing that you care.
Linda and I wish you a great Holiday season.
District 7890 Governor
