Until...

[March 06]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

My favorite modern day philosopher is a gentleman by the name of Jim Rohn. Jim was a great business philosopher whose teachings can be applied to many areas of life. Although Jim Rohn passed in 2009, his talks and seminars can be seen on YouTube and his many programs are still available today. One of my favorite stories was something that Jim called “The Ant Philosophy.”

 
If You Want To Do The Impossible…

If You Want To Do The Impossible…

[February 27]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

Many of us enjoy a good motivational speaker. There’s always a lesson or new perspective that can be learned along the way. There are several great speakers with various styles and messages who I turn to for my motivational fix.

One of those speakers is known as “The Pitbull of Personal Development.” He’s very unorthodox and he has an interesting sense of style. He’s also an in-your-face kind of a guy. I have to admit, I enjoy most of what he has to say. He’s also pretty funny and he’s very good at making a point.

February 23, 2019…World Rotary Day

[February 20]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

February 23rd marks the 114th anniversary of Rotary International. It seems only fitting that our club should pay homage to the people who started it all. From the Rotary International website: The first four Rotarians On February 23, 1905, Paul P. Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr’s office for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting.

 
It’s Not a Laughing Matter…. Or Is It?

It’s Not a Laughing Matter…. Or Is It?

[February 13]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

Have you heard the expression, “This is not a laughing matter?” That statement usually indicates that something critical is happening. We all know that serious events and emergencies occur from time to time. They need to be handled accordingly. Serious circumstances call for serious responses.

 
Why Care?

Why Care?

[February 06]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

There is a universal quality that doesn’t get talked about very often. This quality can pertain to a new club member, a member of your staff, your spouse, or your family members. It’s a quality that I believe everyone is looking for from individuals who are in our lives. That quality is caring.

 
50-50s, Easy as 1,2,3!

50-50s, Easy as 1,2,3!

[January 29]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

It’s that time of year again.

Our thoughts turn to Spring and a warm Sunday in the park. Picture it…. The birds are chirping; townspeople are gathered far and wide and there, over the horizon, are a thousand runners who are jockeying for position. Leading the way is our very own Doug Merritt. He’s riding a tricked out Electric Bicycle accessorized by a sleek yet understated “PW Herman” model bicycle helmet!

Run with Rotary on Earth Day will be held on May 5th this year. We are once again collaborating with the Montgomery Environmental Commission which means, Recycling; Vendors; Food Trucks: Battle of the Bands: Exhibits and yes…..Rizzo’s Reptiles!

 
Service Above Self…He Made a Difference

Service Above Self…He Made a Difference

[January 23]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

Different things inspire and motivate all of us. Question: What inspires and motivates you? While there are several different answers, there are also some things that I believe are common to all of us, such as sound advice, words of wisdom and inspiring quotes and noble actions by great men and women.

A Novel Approach To Life!

A Novel Approach To Life!

[January 09]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

Our club has so many accomplished people in our ranks. I’m sure the sentiments that I’m about to share will resonate with virtually everyone.

There are ups and downs in life that happen to everyone. No one is exempt. Think about the challenges that we have faced in our lives. Think about the sense of triumph that we feel when we overcome those challenges.

Each New Year brings with it hopes, wishes and goals. It represents a fresh start where we can make improvements and work towards our ideals. Our New Year’s Resolutions usually fit into six different categories: Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Financial, Want and Wish.
