President Judith reflects on a successful and productive first half of the Rotary year. 
 
Dear Santa Barbara Sunrise Rotary Members!
 
Happy Holidays to you! Can you believe it's December? I certainly cannot. The first six months of this Rotary year has just flown by. What fun! Thank you to each of you for your support, participation and enthusiasm these last six months! Also, a special thank you to all the board members, Club and Foundation, as well as committee and project chairs for all your work this year. We've accomplished so much in our community and internationally. I look forward to 2023 when we can implement all the projects that are in the planning stages. Stay tuned!
 
We've been especially fortunate to welcome 4 new members to the Club- David Steckel, Jessica Proffitt, Angela Miller-Bevan and Clay Sipiora! We've also welcomed back a beloved former member- Lily Carey. We are all so thrilled to have you as part of our Club and look forward to getting to know you better as we give service in our community and enjoy some fun, social times together! Welcome again!  
 
In closing, I'd like to wish each of you the warmest wishes for a happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year. May peace, love, and prosperity follow you into the New Year, and may your new year be all that you hoped for- sprinkled with love and friendship. Happy Holidays!
 
With lots of love and appreciation.
 
President Judith
