President's Message: Memorial Day Weekend
So every year around this time, we all relish in the start of warm weather.  The opportunity to get outside, clean up ours homes and yards, play some golf or get our boats in the water.  That’s right, we are approaching Memorial Day—“The Unofficial Start to Summer”. 
Anyone else hate that expression?  The weather is nice and school is almost out, but to make Memorial Day about summer vacations always strikes me as devaluing to what I believe is one of our most important and solemn national holidays.
So the message this week is simple:  Remember that Monday is a holiday to honor the men and women who fought and died in service to our country.  Yes, enjoy the barbecues and friendship.  Enjoy the fine weather and opportunities to spend your time outdoors.  Enjoy some additional time off work perhaps.  But also remember.  After all, it is Memorial Day...
I want to take a moment to remind all of us that Rotary Clubs everywhere do some amazing things.  We are a young club, just coming in to our own.  But there are examples around the world of what a small group of Rotarians has been able to accomplish.  Like them, we too could accomplish many great things if we put our minds to it.  Did you know that Easter Seals and ShelterBox grew out of Rotary?  (And did you know that I wrote this before we just got the District e-mail about EasterSeals?!)  Did you know that Rotary's plan to eradicate polio started as a simple dream to tackle a big problem?
We welcome your ideas.  We might just roll the dice to see what we can do to help.
Happy Memorial Day!
