Please join your Rotary friends Monday, June 18, as we welcome and recognize our scholarship recipients, Cierra Zaslowe-Dude and Bailey Englert. These two young women are remarkable on many levels, so come to get to know them and wish them well in college.

We also hope to have TJ, of TJ’s Tea fame, on hand to speak about her school that teaches children English in a village school in Sri Lanka.

And we expect Assistant District Governor-Elect Doug Rupert to join us for a quick introductory hello.

Stepping up to the Plate
There are several avenues of service in Rotary. However, one is especially important: Club service. Without club service, other avenues of service could not exist. July 1st marks the beginning of a new Rotary year, and it is a good time for each of us to consider our role and involvement—our club service—in Peterborough Rotary for the upcoming year.

There are many opportunities to serve, from committee members to officers. Some require only a little of your time, some a little more, and none require more than you can offer.

Rotary is a participatory, not spectator, sport. You can keep the bench warm for only so long while others run the bases. At some point, each of us needs to step up to the plate and take a swing.

If haven’t already done so, want you step up to the plate and let me know how you would like to be involved with our club?
