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.  Carl Sagan once said, Let us temper our criticism with kindness.  None of us comes fully equipped.

President's Message: Michael Caslin
My fellow Rotarians,
 
On this date in 1912, the British luxury passenger liner the Titanic hits an iceberg at 11:40pm off Newfoundland during its maiden voyage, en route to New York City from Southampton, England.  One of the most famous tragedies in modern history, it inspired numerous stories, several films, and a musical and has been the subject of much scholarship and scientific speculation.  Titanic’s sinking provided a wake-up call.  A review of the incident informed industry-wide improvements in both design and safety procedures.  Rotary exemplifies the highest standard when it comes to charitable organizations!
