DG Beverly's December Message
Happy Holidays!!!!!   
Tis the season for joy, thankfulness and giving.  We as Rotarians celebrate this season it seems all year round with all that we do in so many ways.  I have been so blessed to be a part of this Rotary family and to be a part of all that we do, not only in our own backyards but around the world……a little bit like what Santa Claus does.  Hummm….I never thought of it like that.
Wishing you and yours a most Blessed and Wonderful Holiday Season and Thank You for being one of “Santa’s Elves”.

District Project - Central Texas Food Bank
