As I write my last weekly president’s message and reflect upon our outstanding Centennial event last week, I would like to offer up some “Thank-Yous”. 
  • Thank you for the opportunity to be your President this year.  The experience has been extraordinary. 
  • Thank you to all of you who make our club such a vibrant, caring and giving organization.  Our club is truly special. 
  • Thank you to our club for sponsoring three of our sons to participate in the Rotary Youth Exchange program. This program truly changes lives and creates a small step towards achieving world peace.
  • Thank you Lyn Sheffer.  You are truly special.
Lastly, I fell woefully short of my goal to have Eva Marie and I share a meal with each one of you along with your spouse, partner, significant other, etc. during my year as President.  For those of you with whom we did share a meal, those meals were one of the many highlights of my year as President.  This process was such a positive experience, Eva Marie and I have decided to simply extend our timeline and continue to reach out to everyone with hopes of sharing a meal with all of you.  We plan to continue this course of action until we have shared a meal with all of you.
