As the holiday season is upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year – the people we have connected with and the moments we have shared and will forever cherish. I look forward to continuing these moments with all of you and wish you all a most wonderful holiday and a very Happy New Year! 
 
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us at our Third Thursday Holiday Mixer last evening as well as our special meeting to propose amendments to our clubs by-laws. All amendments were unanimously passed. It was a pleasure to see so many of you there to help us end this year on such a happy note and to the soulful  tunes of Germaine Thomas and friends!

Club President

Poem: When Giving Is All We Have

alberto rios

 

alberto riosWe give because someone gave to us.
We give because nobody gave to us.

 
We give because giving has changed us.
We give because giving could have changed us.

 
We have been better for it,
We have been wounded by it—

 
Giving has many faces: It is loud and quiet,
Big, though small, diamond in wood-nails.

Its story is old, the plot worn and the pages too,
But we read this book, anyway, over and again:

 
Giving is, first and every time, hand to hand,
Mine to yours, yours to mine.

 
You gave me blue and I gave you yellow.
Together we are simple green. You gave me

 
What you did not have, and I gave you
What I had to give—together, we made

 
Something greater from the difference.

–  Alberto Rios
