Dear Rotarians and Friends,
Each month just seems to roll by faster and faster as we head toward the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Holidays.  So much to do and so little time, or at least it sometimes feels that way.  It can be difficult to be all things to all people, so do the best you can and be comfortable knowing you are doing more than most people with your volunteer time and efforts.  This past Saturday our Club’s Interact and Exchange Students spent Saturday at Cuyahoga Falls HS with young folks from throughout the District.  Barb Sabal, Marty Harris, Jean Vahue and our friend of Rotary, Kersten Senger, all gave time to support our students and others.  Thank you all.  Marty, Barb and Jean also spent time feeding teachers at Harrison Elementary School in Lakewood one day this past week.  Now that is commitment in “Making A Difference”.  I hope I did not omit anyone.
How can you individually make a more of a difference??  How about serving as a Board Member for your Club??  Each November we nominate and elect at least three (3) new Board Members to serve a three year term commencing July 1 of next year, 2018.  You need to be a Rotarian in our Club and be willing to meet once a month for an hour or so to discuss everything we need to manage and grow our Club.  If you have never done it, volunteer.  If you have done it before, step up again.  The vitality of the Club and its stewardship belongs to each and every one of us.  Is it your turn??
