President Rick challenged us with "Who have you invited to Rotary this week?" 
 
We Miss You! 
We miss seeing Bruce and Gloria Richter at our meetings! Both have played a huge part in this club and we look forward to seeing them again soon.  Please keep Gloria in your prayers - she is dealing with some health issues.  Also pray for Bruce that he will remain healthy and stay strong so he can continue to care for her.
 
We are lifting up Destiny and John's baby Joslyn in prayer because she is having surgery.  She was born in December and was discovered to have a condition that causes her skull to grow together too early. May all go successfully for you Jos - have a speedy recovery!
 
Who do you know that is missing from our meetings that could use our support?
