New club president, Lisa Peacock shares her inspiring vision statement for her term.
"As I sat at the opening night of PETS a young woman got onstage and recounted the effect that Rotary has had on her life. She went from a 9-year-old drug dealer to a homeless 11-year-old living under a 110 overpass to an emancipated 13 year old to a high school graduate and an Ambassadorial Scholar. Because of Rotary she has dedicated her life to solving the water problems of underdeveloped countries.
After this presentation I sat and marveled in the idea that I had a part in her success. We matter. Every time we plan a program, help with a fundraiser, or work with a service program we are changing lives. My vision is to see every member of our club choose an area of to dedicate a portion of their time this year.
Programs- Providing variety and excitement to our weekly meetings
Service Projects- Hands-on ways that our club can work as a team to positively effect the community
Fundraising- Really being excited and empowered to work as a united team on the Art Show. Without all of us this becomes a burden on a few and they deserve our help with out having to ask.
By focusing on these three areas I hope to create a cohesive sense of family within Rotary and a greater impact on our community.
Meeting Time: Our meetings will start promptly at 12:20 please enter quietly if you are late. We will end promptly at 1:30.
I look forward to getting to know every member better this year and truly making Rotary something that we can not stop talking about!"
