    Greetings Kirk,
    Thank-you for the living portrait you give of Rotary. The gathering yesterday was incredible of community leaders of tomorrow and many who are their mentors in vocations today.
    I also want to offer appreciation to Phil for one of the most compelling talks and demonstrations of how personal the devastation of polio was on people in his life. Yes, we smiled at Austin’s willingness to work a crawl on the floor without the benefit of his feet. But that polio representation got me thinking deeper about Rotary’s world wide efforts against polio.
    Good work, Kirk


    Kirk–You are on the way to becoming a “Multi-Media Communicator Par Excellence.” Do no less as you demonstrate ways for RC members to communicate within a club and between clubs. –JJK

  • Thanks so much for sharing these accomplished students. I was away on business and so sorry I missed it. Great meeting I can tell. See you soon.

  • Craig Leiser, DGE:

    Great job all the way around. Student recognition is essential for success of any program that involves them. Great club website connection. Terry has always done a fine job.
