Hard to believe we are are in the Holiday Season and I am half way through my year as your President.  I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and all the  Best for the Holiday Season.  
We have so many talented members and one of our best is Phil Horner whose talent for writing poems comes through at this time of the year.
As I sat down to write my Season wishes I read Phil's poem presented at our last social evening and it reflected all I had in mind.
Yours in Rotary
