Hello fellow Sunupians,
I wanted to share with you my recent attendance at Frontier Rotary. It was nice to reaffirm a Rotarian is a Rotarian is a Rotarian. Service above Self is indeed universal across clubs. Thank you Danny for the invitation.
So for those who were not able to join us last Wednesday, Donna deployed a fun way to get our members to know other members a little better. I loved it and hope you will continue to embrace it.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, no spoilers here, you’ll have to come to Wednesdays meeting to find out. Thank you Donna.
I want to continue to request thoughts and prayers for our friends and members dealing with a wide range of health issues.
See you all Wednesday,
