President's Message NOVEMBER 2014

Hello fellow Rotary eClub One members and Welcome all Rotarians visiting our website. November is one of my favorite months. The air is cool and crisp allowing me to wear my favorite sweaters. In the USA we celebrate Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is a day that is celebrated by some and seen as a day of sad remembrance by others. If we look at this day through the lens of Rotary we could see it as a day when we are thankful for those we love and helpful to those in need or do not have their loved ones with them for Thanksgiving dinner.

There were many Thanksgiving dinners when I was growing up where we found strangers at our table. These were usually young servicemen who did not have family to eat with. These experiences for me have lead me to see Thanksgiving through the lens of Rotary.

Of course, we do not need to wait for a special day to invite someone we know who may be far from home or without family for a meal or even a cup of coffee and fellowship. Perhaps one day you may have an opportunity to have dinner in a place far from home with someone who invites you into their home for a meal, coffee and fellowship.

I hope to see as many of my fellow Rotary eClub One members for dinner in April in Boulder Colorado as is possible. Thank you to all who are visiting our website.

Yours in Rotary Service,

Tracy Adams

President, Rotary eClub One
