Rotary Speech Contest by Donna Wood

Each year high school students are invited to compete in the annual Rotary Speech Contest on the theme chosen by the International President to shape his or her year as president. The 2012-2013 International President Sakuji Tanaka’s theme is “Peace through Service.”  The Quincy Rotary Club was honored to have Dale Morgan, Che Rubalcava-Cunan, Isabella Brandes and Kyle Morgan, students from Quincy High School tackle this theme and present their speeches on Monday, March 11.  Their speeches were a reflection of what ‘peace through service’ might mean in their lives, their community and the world.  Each of the four students came with a unique perspective that impressed and challenged the hearers, but all agreed that each of us has a role in the job of peace-making and that when we seek to serve others for the sake of helping others and not for our own self-interest, we take a step toward building a peaceful world.   Each of these young people has taken that step, and we all would do well to follow.  

Please remember the Music Contest on March 25, 2013 at 6pm.  Please sign up on line with the link sent last week.  Please join us at our Board Meeting on March 21 3:30 pm at the Plumas Bank Admin Building.
