The Davisburg Rotary all set up and providing free hearing tests for the fine folks visiting the 2019 Oakland County Fair. We had over 150 stop in and get their hearing tested. 
During the first week of November, Davisburg Rotary provided for eye clinic services to indigenous Mayan decedents in remote Guatemala. Davisburg Rotary purchased one of the phoropters used by the doctors, necessary to perform this mission trip.  This phoropter will be used for future eye clinic missions, the next scheduled for January 2019, in remote Kenya.
Davisburg Rotary also supplied two soccer balls to two schools in the area.

The flyer for the Celebrate America 2019 Davisburg Rotary Flag Program is downloadable from the left hand column of our home page or you can download it by clicking here: 2019 US FLAG ORDER FORM.  One flag for $35 or two or more flags placed at the same address for $30 each will be placed by Rotarians at your residence or business for the week surrounding Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and Veterans' Day.  Flag and staff remain the property of Davisburg Rotary.  Proceeds benefit our community service projects.

Davisburg Rotary now meets on 1st & 3rd Thursday mornings, 7.a.m. - 8 a.m. at the 4-H Fair Grounds Community Rom (next to the 4-H office).   Guests always welcome!  On 2nd Tuesdays we meet for fellowship breakfast at various local restaurants.  Watch for announcements.

VOLUNTEERS - where would this world be without them?  1,000's of hours are donated and dedicated to our communities each year by "volunteers" or almost volunteers to make our communities better or at least to make a few lives better.  Men and women that I call almost volunteers like our "paid call" firefighters, local Park, Library,             Planning commissions, Board of Appeals, Board of Review and others may receive a small per diem or other pay but it does not cover their time and expenses typically.  I read recently that "A Volunteer is someone that does not get paid- not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."

     Erma Bombeck said "Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nations compassion, unselfish caring, patience and just plain love of others."  Does that describe people you know or who live in your neighborhood?  Do you see them when you drop your kids or grandkids off at scouts, church or school?  Do you recognize them - our community is full of silent selfless servants.  Tell them thanks next time you see them- it may be the first time in months.  Can you imagine what a sad community and nation we would have without our uselfish servants, our voluteers?

Incoming Rotary International President Ray Klinginsmith said "Blessed are those who dream dreams and are willing to pay the price to make them come true" (enfice added).  I first heard those words several weeks ago and again last Saturday but it took a while to sink in.  Are our dreams worth paying for?  How much would you pay to see your dreams come true?

As Rotarians we dream of a world free of Polio, a world where no child dies from contaminated water or malnutrition and a world at peace.  As Rotarians we dream of communities with adequate parks, well stocked libraries, tree lined streets and all residents having enough to eat and proper medical care.  Those are but a few of Rotarians dreams.  Rotary Clubs, Rotarians and friends of Rotary world wide have shown a willingness to pay the price to make their dreams come true time and time again.

No you do not have to be a Rotarian to dream dreams but it helps with dreams as large as the eradication of Polio.  What about you and I and our dreams for our community?  Are we willing to pay the price to make them come true?  The answer has to be yes because our community deserves no less.
