PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Celebrating Our Freedom

We had a great turn out of Rotarians, extended family, kids and prospective members at our tent for the City's fireworks display. A special thanks goes out to Mickey Deaton and Victoria Webster for staking out an awesome spot for our 4th of July celebration. At the end of the night, many hands made light work of breaking down our tables, tents and chairs. Thanks to that group too!

As we begin the new Rotary year, I am proud to live in a country where we are free and that we choose to use our freedom to go do good in our neighborhood, our state, our country and around the world.

THIS WEEK'S PROGRAM
Rotary Connects The World

Our RI President Mark Maloney introduced the theme for the 2019-20 Rotary year as, "Rotary Connects The World." If you are a Rotarian, this is a no-brainer. It is the power of the pin that allows us to cross the physical, cultural and religious boundaries that stop other organizations in their tracks. President Mark wants us to use his theme to demonstrate our influence, expand our reach, engage our members and adapt to the ever changing world.

District Governor Jim Squire is carrying the RI theme into his year with a focus on Basic Education & Literacy. That means no Rotary Bandit, Possum Bob or Pirate "Argh" for Cheryl to play off of but I am sure the creatives in our club will come up with some fun ways to promote our activities throughout the year.

At our meeting this week, we will preview the year ahead and show off some of the cool things we hope to accomplish.
