Pres. Mike, as one of his last chores as President, took time to thank a number of people who helped make his year as President a successful one by gifting them with a copy of Be Mindful & Stress Less by Gina M. Biegel. This book was ded- icated to Mike’s nephew, Tomas, who committed suicide a couple of years ago. This is a topic on many people’s minds lately so this book is very meaningful.

Thanks went to PE Roger (probably for taking over so Mike could finally rest), Secretary Julia Rice, Treasurer Bonnie Cameron (who received a
standing ovation for her many years as chief bean counter); Otis Archie, PR; Donna Crocker, Family of Rotary who said she hopes we don’t get sick because she like writing happy notes; Ron Perry, Sergeant at Arms for ringing him in every week; Janet Meyers, for providing great programs all year; Mary Ann Carson, Community Service; Bob Putney, TRF, and Richard Torcia, Youth Services. He will catch up with a few others, who were not in attendance, at the next meeting.

Pres. Mike ended the meeting with a quote from JK Rowling, “There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other”. A wise man, our President!
