President's Message 
Happy New Year to Rotarians and Friends of Rotary.  I hope that everyone was able to spend time with loved ones over the Christmas season, maybe enjoying a turkey dinner and/or some laughs.  I find it hard to believe that I am half way through my year as Club President.  Time truly does go by quickly, even with the restrictions of COVID-19.  As we move into 2022, I encourage everyone to embrace optimism, not only for the end of the pandemic, but also for what our Rotary Club can achieve.  
Actress Audrey Hepburn wrote the phrase …Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I'm possible.   Some major initiatives that our Club has undertaken have come with some skepticism … ie. Rotary Beach … the Millenium Trail … the scoreboard at the ball diamonds … or, raising $400k in <5 years for the New PEC Hospital.  All these initiatives have been very successful and have resulted in our Club being a trusted and valuable contributor in the community.  As we define new initiatives for 2022 and beyond, let’s all take heed of Audrey Hepburn’s words, and individually say “I’m possible”.
P.S.  Many thanks to David Hawkins for reminding me of Audrey Hepburn’s quote.

Week of December 21, 2021:  Classification Speech (Bill Pennell)
MPres Trudy opened the meeting promptly at 7:07 a.m.  The meeting had to be returned to a Zoom session due to the rising Omicron virus community spread.  The turnout was very good, with over 20 members present online.  After the usual formalities, MPres Trudy yielded the floor to Bill Pennell to provide his classification speech.  

In Club business, Bill Mitchell was able to solicit the required volunteers to staff the bottle depot for the last week of the year.  PE Ken Robertson asked for additional volunteers to staff the vaccine clinic in January.  Subsequently, there was sufficient time for each Rotarian to say a few words to express their year-end message of thankfulness - sort of a virtual Happy Bucks.  With the Four Way Test, the meeting closed shortly after 8 a.m. with everyone wishing each other a Merry Christmas.

May Your 2022 Be Healthy, Fulfilling, and Happy !!

Four Way Test

       Of the things we think, say, and do:
        1.  Is it the TRUTH?
        2.  Is it FAIR to all concerned?
        3.  Will it build GOODWILL and better
        4.  Will it be BENEFICIAL to all
