Congratulations to Jennifer Jones!
I think it's about time! Congratulations are in order to Rotary International and particularly to Jennifer Jones. She was nominated to be the RI President for the year of 2022-2023. She is a member of the Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada club. She will be the first woman to hold the position of RI President in the 115 year history of Rotary. Although it's been a long time coming, there has to be a first before a second. Change may be slow in coming, but I hope and expect more positive changes will happen throughout our Rotary family.

August 12 Zoom Meeting 
Hi all.  This week's Rotary program is Sharon Maggard from Serenity House giving us an update on their programs and current situation. 
In person Rotary meetings have been suspended. Our club has set up a virtual, video meeting using Zoom. Below is the link to ZOOM.  You'll want to copy down the meeting ID and password.  Then, when you click on the link and hit the "join a meeting" icon it will prompt you for the ID number, and then the password - which is 6 digits. When you do this you should be in the meeting.  If you're using your computer camera, your photo will come across the top of the screen.  At the bottom of your screen will be some icons.  One is a microphone and you'll want to be sure it's not muted so you can talk.  Once the program starts you'll want to mute yourself until the Q&A.

President's Message

Matt Miller

Fellow Rotarians,

I should probably hate carrot cake.

If I look through most recipes for carrot cake, there are almost no ingredients that I like.  I'm not particularly fond of carrots, I'm indifferent to walnuts, I don't like frosting, and I absolutely hate raisins!  Here is the crazy part.  I really truly enjoy carrot cake.  In fact, I am not sure I have ever had a carrot cake (including cupcakes) that I didn't like!  There is some mysterious sorcery at work, that makes a collection of things I don't necessarily care for into something I so consistently enjoy.

I think that we might all be able to benefit from closing our recipe books, so we can think a bit more about our desserts and a little less about the ingredients.  All around us in society, it is not hard to find the "raisins" to grumble about.  If we take a step back to look at the great things that we can do together, however, we may just find something pretty great can have multiple ingredients that might not be to our individual tastes.  This can apply to humanity, our nation, our community, or even our club.

It is OK that we disagree now and then.  Life would be boring if we were all the same, and no great recipes involve only one ingredient.  What we become together is made better when everyone has a chance to contribute their distinct flavor.  I might be the raisin in your carrot cake (of course, you might be a nut), but there is no mistaking the good that our club does in the community.  Like that slice of cake, our club is something that I consistently enjoy.  I hope that you do too. 

Let's get to work.
