Hello fellow Rotarians,
April is now upon us. Spring has sprung. It’s hard to believe that I only have 3 more months to go as your President. Ok…I heard those cheers! Haha…oh wait…that was me cheering…oops. tehehe
I would like to thank everyone for your participation and help in this year’s Elimination Raffle. Y’all should be very proud of the success of this event every year. Congratulation to President-Elect Bruce and his team for showing us how to “Let the Good Times Roll!!” Everything was a big success and a great time was had by all. The final numbers are still to be calculated. We will let you know when it’s all done. Who will be this year’s winner of the Big Kahuna? Did Jasmine go wire to wire? Did John Dutra or Daren Young sneak in at the last minute? We should soon find out.
This year’s Rotary theme is to “Be the Inspiration.” I am going to challenge everyone in Niles Rotary to find and recognize someone who is inspiring. Take a look around you. Is there someone you know who did something special? Is there a person who is just an amazing individual? Let them know by giving them our RI theme pin of “Be the Inspiration.” Take a picture with them if you can, then share the story as to why this person was an inspiration. You can send the story and photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will share some of the stories at the meeting and here in the Pinion. If you need some pins, please let the COGS know. They can get some for you.
I’m looking forward to hearing about the great people in our community. Now go out there and flood my email with great stories.
