Happy New Year--and a big thank you to all the Rotarians who have made Don and me feel so very welcome in your areas.  
 
This year we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of our Rotary Foundation.  To quote past Rotary International (RI) President, Kalyan Banerjee, “Let’s never forget that The Rotary Foundation belongs to all of us.  You and I provide the funding for just about every bit of good that our Foundation is doing in the world—and has been doing for an entire century.  Let’s make sure we continue that tradition for the next 100 years.”

I grew up a Club kid. I started going to the Boys and Girls Club for youth sports when I was just five years old, but really became a Club Kid in middle school when I needed a safe and positive environment after school.
