During our meeting on December 19th, we will commemorate the holidays with a festive breakfast inclusive of live entertainment and a gift exchange. Santa is on schedule to make an appearance!
 
We ask each Rotarian to please bring a wrapped gift ($20 value) for the gift exchange*
 
GUESTS: We welcome you to bring a guest to the party. If you do,
·      Please let Kevin Lynch know so that he can give a proper count to CVCC AND
·      Please remember to bring an extra grab bag gift for your guest, so everyone gets a gift.

Some suggested guidelines for the party:
~Please arrive by 7:15am as our musical entertainment will begin right away.
~Please plan to stay until 9:00am. Since we usually have so much fun during our gift exchange*, it can take some time. We don’t want people to run off and miss the fun!
~Though liquor is always an acceptable gift, it’s also fun when there are a variety of possibilities when people begin opening the packages. 
 
Hopefully everyone will be able to attend the festivities, prepared to have a wonderful time.

I’d like to start this week’s message with a well-seasoned observation:

Whether we like it or not, in some ways we are affected by our affiliations with other people. Our affiliations tend to set our standards for the quality of our lives. Depending on our peer group, we can both rise and fall to the standards of the company that we keep.  Part of being a Rotarian is to assume the responsibility of living up to a certain ideal. Rotary is a service organization that asks its members to give of themselves. It’s also an organization that helps us to be better human beings. The Rotary standards are impeccable.

The Rotary Club of Montgomery/Rocky Hill will be honoring national and local heroes December 4-13 in its display of 100 full-size flags in front of the Montgomery Upper Middle School.  The display specifically recognizes the invaluable and heroic service given by local veterans, emergency services squads, firefighters, and police officers to the nation, Montgomery Twp and Rocky Hill Boro.  In times when one is the most vulnerable it is the first responders who bravely provide protection.
 
The December display will also serve as a warm welcome to the Wreaths Across America convoy on December 11th.  The Flags for Heroes program will return next June.  Each full size flag that is sponsored will be displayed with a personalized tag.  All proceeds from the sponsorships will be donated by the Rotary to charitable causes.  More information about Flags for Heroes will be available in the Spring.  Everyone is invited to visit the flag display in front of the Montgomery Upper Middle School located on Burnt Hill Rd from December 4-13.

The Vietnam war started in 1955 and it was over in 1975. Many of us grew up during those turbulent years.   I was born in 1959 and grew up during that era. I graduated from high school in 1977. The Vietnam War was going on for virtually all of my childhood.

Back then, the draft was in the news every day. There were protests to the draft; there was the burning of draft cards. Young men moved to Canada to avoid the draft. Unlike World War II, the Vietnam War lacked public support and there seemed to be no directive from the United States to actually win the war. The country was unsure of its purpose. It seemed like such a waste of young lives. Our country was in turmoil.

I’d like to share a story about a woman named Lilly who found her way into the fitness center on Tuesday. Lily came in with a guest pass that our staff had left at a local doctor’s office.  At first, everything seemed to be normal. I did notice however that she was dressed a little unusual. When I looked around, I also noticed that she parked a small personal shopping cart on the side wall in the lobby. It was loaded with what looked like to be all of her belongings.  As I continued to talk with her, I realized that Lily was suffering from some mental issues. She told me that she was sleeping on the campus at Princeton University. That all changed when the campus police had a removal order issued for her to leave.
