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.

We Put the “Fun” in Funnel Cakes

[July 26]

One of our club’s time honored traditions is the annual Funnel Cake Sale at the 4H Fair. It’s a very important three day event. It’s our club’s second largest fundraiser that calls for all hands on deck.

 
 

Four Ways to Improve Our Lives and the Lives of Others

[July 19]

Dear Fellow Rotarians and friends,

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.

 
 
 
 

Think Happy…. Be Happy…2018-2019

[July 12]

Dear Fellow Rotarians and friends,

July marks the start of a new Rotary year. I think that it’s only fitting that this year’s theme, Think Happy…Be Happy, started as the theme of our Installation Dinner. We’re a club that is rich in tradition.

 
Joyous and Melancholy

Joyous and Melancholy

[June 07]

I haven't had this many opportunities to smile like an idiot or to tear up as I have this week. Monday evening was Harry's final banquet at Montgomery High School, his and my twelfth over four years. For the first time we (the leaders of the track and field booster club) put on the gala at Cherry Valley rather than in the commons at the high school. I called Josh at 5PM and he was there at 6:15, taking some amazing pictures of the young men and women.

Then on Tuesday I had the honor and privilege of presenting eight scholarships to very worthy recipients, having know some of them since they were little kids. They're not little anymore. It was an absolutely amazing event that was beautifully executed and a sheer pleasure for all involved. Many of those in this picture also received scholarships, another example of the well-rounded young people we have in our community.
