Good morning fellow Sunupians,
I hope your day is off to a wonderful start. May it continue to get better as the week goes on. As Rotarians, we must continue to find innovative ways to reach out into our communities and help those in need. We forget that sometimes it’s the little things we do that makes a difference. I look forward to seeing you all this Wednesday morning. Please invite a member.
