We are in unprecedented times for certain.  With the pandemic deaths over 100,000, the treatment of people of color, and the response of protests turning to violence, I realize that we need Rotary more than ever.  We need a place where all people of the world can work together and be in conversation, a place where service counts before any judgment, a place that strives for hope, health and compassion in the world and in our communities.  We need one another.  Rotary does connect the world and doors are opening to the healing possibilities that are called for.  I hope and pray that we can continue the fine work that Rotary that has been advancing for over 100 years.  Together we can make a difference.  Thank you for being a Rotarian.

Two quick reminders:  June 2, Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. Lalaina Rabary will be our guest speaker for our meeting; please came and share in the message of this dynamic Rotarian.  Tuesday June 16, 3-8 p.m., we are having a mobile food drive gathering food at 8207 Summer Side Austin, Texas.  Make a difference wherever you are!
