President’s Message

Greetings, Fellow Rotarians!

The last few days I have been lucky enough to be with two daughters and a grandson for a competition in Washington, DC. Being in this city always has a profound effect on me. The museums, the artwork, the music, the culture – such a celebration of the greatness of the human spirit and human achievement. I also think of the wars fought, the lives lost, the great personal sacrifice of hundreds of thousands – millions, really – of brave individuals who were driven to protect the fragile ideals of our democracy. The choices they made left a precious legacy for us. How will we protect that legacy?

I’m so grateful for each and every one of you and all you do for others through Rotary both locally and globally. Thank you!

Special thanks to Past President Ron Kerman who will lead this week’s meeting in my absence! See you soon!

Yours in Rotary Service,

President Alison Kelley
