On a personal note Thank You to each and every Rotary Member for all your hard work and efforts behind the scenes. So many things that your organization does behind the scenes are not even public knowledge, even though that is not the point of your efforts but instead to help, and thank you again. This year especially kindness and caring for others is so necessary to help drown out all the bad things that are happening. So show your support by buying some beautiful roses.
