President David opened the meeting at 12:30 pm.
 
Eliot Williamson presented Words of Inspiration by calling upon his ethos of what it means to connect with the community and the importance of getting involved.  His inspiration is to leave a situation better than before and strive to leave your mark - whether with a job, personal situation, or community.  He ended his speech with a Chinese Proverb stating, “It is easy to be the person you have always been, that person does not go away.  But it is our calling to add to what has always been.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
President David opened the meeting at 12:30 pm.
 
Gretchen Kearney presented Words of Inspiration, drawing from the writings of that great sage, Dr. Seuss.  The three messages were: Be Flexible (from I had Trouble Getting to Solla Sollew); Think Before you Speak (from “Steak for Supper” in The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories); and Cherish Diversity (from One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish).  The quote supporting the second message was: 
My father had warned me, “Don’t Babble. Don’t Bray. / For you never can tell who might hear what you say.”
My father had warned me, “Boy, button your lip.”/And I guess that I should have.  I made a bad slip.
