Meeting Day - Thanksgiving - November 23rd

There is no Rotary Meeting on this Thursday, November 23, 2017.
Your time and recognition will not be forgotten by anyone who receives a Thanksgiving blessing from you. This year, share your thankfulness by starting a holiday tradition everyone will love. If you are looking for a little something more, I have included a few gems and hopefully you can find the perfect thank you for anyone on your list.
When the big feast comes around, don’t forget what Thanksgiving is all about. Being thankful is an important part of being happy and sharing this joy with others will only elevate your holiday. Oh, and remember to give your compliments to the chef, it is Thanksgiving after all.
  • There have been times when I forgot to thank you for being there for me. I take this day to tell you how special you are and how great my life has become because of you. Have a memorable Thanksgiving.
  • May your stuffing be tasty. May your turkey plump, may your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump. May your yams be delicious, and your pies take the prize, and may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs.
  • Wishing you a harvest of blessings, good health and good times. Happy Thanksgiving day!
  • “Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year because it reminds us to give thanks and to count our blessings. Suddenly, so many things become so little when we realize how blessed and lucky we are.” -Joyce Giraud
  • “We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.” -Anonymous
  • “God gave you the gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?” – William A. Ward
  • “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John F. Kennedy
  • “Vegetables are a must on Thanksgiving. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread and pumpkin pie.” – Jim Davis
  • “Last Thanksgiving I shot my own turkey. It was fun. That shotgun going, BLAM! Everybody at the supermarket just staring. Why track them when I know where they are?” -Kenny Rogerson
  • “Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.” -Erma Bombeck
  • “Toasted, roasted, baked and done! Hope your Thanksgiving is loads of fun.” -Anonymous
  • “Each day I am thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality and likes that turned into love. Most importantly though, I am thankful for you today and everyday.” -Anonymous
We will also be dark on December 21 and 28 for Christmas and New Year's. Our Thieving Elves Program will be on December 14th.

We were honored at our last meeting to begin supporting our High school Seniors with the Student of The Month program. We had Mari Tucker as our October Student and Jesse Sprinkle as our November Student. Both are very active in several organizations and plan on going to college. Adelaide Marlatt introduced them and present them with their certificates.
We were also pleased to have the Treasurer of the Rockport-Fulton Little League in attendance to receive a grant of over $15,000 to support the re-building and recovery of that program after Hurricane Harvey. The funds will be used for scholarships and equipment purchases.

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.

You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting.
