Holidays are filled with poems some funny and some so true, so please accept this thoughtful one that I want to share with you: I know what you are all thinking…. what should I get President Ross this year, I can’t possibly help his golf swing and his fridge is fully stocked with beer!” If I say that I want nothing, you might get me something anyway, So here’s a list of what I’d like, please believe me when I say: School supplies for kids, or read to them and become a volunteer or mentor, Give your excess clothes, food, and stuff, to a homeless distribution center, Volunteer for “Give Kids The World”, a Rotary committee or event, I promise it will be some of the most fun you’ve had, and you’ll be very glad you went, Perform good deeds, lead by example, and volunteer your time, these things are worth a fortune, as I babble on in rhyme.
But I’m writing to Dr Phillips Rotarian’s who already do so much, think of all the help you’ve been, and all the hearts you’ve touched! Then to you I say “Congratulations” and Thank You for all you’ve done”. 2015 we’ll uncover new needs find new causes, and I hope you’ll bring us one. Let’s continue our good works in “Service above Self” and as always…“Let’s Make It Fun”! Looking for an end of year donation….support the work of The Rotary Foundation. Your gift allows us to improve communities by promoting peace, preventing disease, bolstering economic development, and providing clean water and sanitation.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to You & Your Families.
Yours in Rotary Service
