The Happier We Are, The Better We serve!

The Happier We Are, The Better We serve!

[April 24]

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

I was very moved when I read this article by Mary Berge, a fellow Rotarian from Johnstown, Pa. I’d like to share it with you this week…. ​

 
Getting To Carnegie Hall

Getting To Carnegie Hall

[April 17]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

There was an old joke where one musician asked another, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” the other musician answered, “Practice, practice, practice!” It’s a great one-liner, but it’s also very true.

Practice makes perfect…. We’ve all heard that right? How about, If at first you don’t succeed…

 
The World Needs More

The World Needs More "Builders"

[April 10]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

When you hear the word ”builder,” what comes to mind? A contractor? A real estate developer? I’m a firm believer that the world needs more of the right kind of builders.

I’m talking about the builders of people. Builders who help to shape the character of young men and women. They are the people who you remember all of your life, because they cared enough to make a difference.

 
News Flash: Rotary Soiree Goes Overtime

News Flash: Rotary Soiree Goes Overtime

[April 03]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

Here are some signs of a really good time: First, it’s a good sign when you’re at an event and the DJ is still going strong at 10:30pm when he is supposed to be done at 10. Second, when the management of the establishment flashes the lights on and off because they are ready to close and they want us to go home…but we still want to stay.

 
It's All About Sincerity!

It's All About Sincerity!

[March 27]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

Which side are you on? In this day and age, we have to pick sides, right? You’re on this side or that. Everyone knows the drill. We simply have to pick a side. How else are we going to know who is a bad person? Or, who is just plain lying? Or stupid? Or whatever? Ugghhhh…..

 
FUN FUN and more FUN!

FUN FUN and more FUN!

[March 20]

Dear Rotarians & friends,

For the Rotary year 2018-2019, one of our goals is to have more fun!! And gosh darn it, now is the time!!

 
Harvard, Princeton & 50/50s

Harvard, Princeton & 50/50s

[March 13]

Dear Fellow Rotarians & friends,

We’re all familiar with great Ivy League colleges such as Harvard, Yale… and of course Princeton.

Question: What makes these pillars of education so great? Some may say the faculty. Others may say the resources that are available. Others may also add the surroundings, like the beautiful grounds and buildings that are rich in tradition and history.

 
Until...

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 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.
