Inspiration:
Train your mind to see the good in everything.  Positivity is a choice.  The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.  Cesar Chavez once said, We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community.

President's Message: Michael Caslin
My fellow Rotarians,
 
On this date in 1862, Mexico repelled the French forces of Napoleon III at the Battle of Puebla, a victory that became a symbol of resistance to foreign domination and is now celebrated as a national holiday, Cinco de Mayo.  Rotary celebrates with Mexico and the rest of the world in peace and service.
 

Michael
