DG Beverly Luedke's January Message
Happy New Year!!!! 
I hope that each of you had a Blessed and Joyous Holiday with family and friends.  There is no time better spent than with those we love. As we start the down side part of the Rotary Year, 2021-22 I have to say, “There will be NO down side to it.”  There is a lot planned with:
  • District Service Projects-End Human Trafficking, Empower Girls, Benches, Fighting Hunger
  • Leadership training- Grant Training, District Assembly
  • Rotary Fellowship-
  • District  Foundation Gala this month,
  • Friendship Exchange in April,
  • District Conference in May and
  • International Convention in Houston in June
So put your “Rotarian At Work” shirt on, call a friend and  let’s all get down to DOING GOOD IN THE WORLD.
See you at the Foundation Gala on the 29th.
To “Serve to Change Lives”.
PS  ……and wear your Blue on January 11th to raise AWARENESS AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING.
