“A Special Group of People”

“A Special Group of People”

[October 17]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

Rotary protocol encourages a refreshing absence of political discussion or bias. I’m happy to say that for the most part, that’s the standard for our club. We are very unique. We are in a world that at times seems to be terribly divided, yet we, as members of the Rotary Club of MRH, remain in harmony.

[October 10]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

As my predecessors have done before me, my goal (with everyone’s help) is to leave our club better off than I found it. We are a club that is rich in tradition and ideals. Those ideals make for a strong foundation that we can continue to enhance and build on.

 
It Made a Difference for Erin!

It Made a Difference for Erin!

[October 03]

Dear Fellow Rotarians and friends,

As we move into the second quarter of this Rotary year, my thoughts turn to just how fast time has been passing. We’re in the second of four quarters. The question that I often ask myself is, “Are we gaining all of the ground that we could in the time that we have. Are we doing all the things that we could that will make the biggest difference?”

Dear Fellow Rotarians and friends,

I’d like to dedicate this week’s message to our newest fundraising project, Flags for Heroes. Through member support, the Flags for Heroes project has the potential to become our third major fundraising event.

The Fastest Horse Can Make a Difference

[September 19]

Dear Fellow Rotarians and friends,

Many years ago, I heard a story that demonstrated the difference between really winning and just maintaining a good pace. I’ll try to do it justice from my memory. The story is about the big difference that a little extra effort could make.

[September 12]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

This week’s speakers are Ellyn Ito and Nina Moukova from the non-profit, Seeds to Sew.

Seeds to Sew improves the lives of women and girls in disadvantaged communities through education and job skills training. As with Isles, (last week’s program), Seeds to Sew is a non-profit that encourages self-reliance and autonomy.

 
Teach A Man to Fish…

Teach A Man to Fish…

[September 06]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

This week’s speaker is Marty Johnson. Marty is the founder and CEO of the non-profit, Isles. Isles promotes individual self-reliance and the development of neighborhoods in urban areas. Isles appears to have a real impact on struggling communities. Through education and skills training, they have helped people to build successful lives. They’ve also helped people to organize and revitalize neighborhoods. What a concept!

 
What He Could Have Been…

What He Could Have Been…

[August 29]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

It’s difficult whenever we lose someone who has been close to us. It’s especially tragic when someone dies as a result of their own bad decisions.

Our speaker for this week’s meeting is Barbara Schlichting. Barbara is the Executive Director of Somerset Treatment Services. Somerset Treatment Services is a treatment and counseling center that offers affordable outpatient services for substance abuse and other related challenges. For me, it's very ironic that STS would be on this week's agenda.

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

One of the goals for this Rotary year is to grow our club’s membership to forty-five members. We’re looking for people of all ages and diversity who will live up to our motto of Service above Self and who will, in the spirit of Rotary, Be the Inspiration to others.

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

There are two major fundraising events that take place annually. They are the cornerstones of our fundraising efforts. The first, is our Run with Rotary. The second, is our Funnel Cake sale at the 4H Fair.

Last week concluded another successful funnel cake extravaganza! Special thanks goes out to all of our participating members.
