Guests of Rotarians: We were honored to have so many Senior Guests at our club. What a great way to celebrate the holidays. Their Rotarian Host introduced each one.
President’s Club:
Sherry Hergott joined to honor “The Greatest Generation”, those that came of age during the depression and many who served in WW II.  Many of our senior guests today are part of that generation. We all appreciate the sacrifices they made for their families and our country.
December Birthdays:
Sam Grinells presented the list of December birthdays and led the club in a rousing rendition of song in their honor.
Coleen Hudgen introduced our special holiday program and we heard about each of our senior guests. They were all great. What an amazing group. Check out our pictures this week to see their happy faces  by clicking here.

We want to thank you, the Rotary Club, and all the people involved in helping with the senior luncheon celebrations. Jason and I enjoyed it very much! It was a wonderful event. We got to meet other seniors in our community and really enjoyed the Monta Vista choir. We're blessed to be living in this community. Thank you very much!

As is our tradition, the Monte Vista Variations Choir, led by, Shari Summers, performed a number of songs for the audience. As always, they were amazing. It was so fun to listen to these kids belt out the tunes and see how much fun they were having. Click on the link here to see the full concert.
