 The club gave a big thank you to Deb Kelly from NHS and Jeff Gale from SHS.  These are the individuals who are responsible for getting the students here each week so they can share their stories and future plans.   Thank you for your efforts!
Fritiof shared with us that he was pleased to be back visiting the club after his accident.  Additionally he is pleased to now be able to eat without pureeing his food.   We continue to wish him well on his future surgeries.
Program - 
This was the annual meeting where students participate by assuming club responsibilities.  This year it was Newman High School students who assumed the responsibilities of greeters, Sgt. at Arms, Fun and Frolic, Invocation and the club Presidents role.  They did an excellent job.
Sterling students had the responsibility of providing the program and they didn't disappoint as the  Challand Middle School eighth grade choir entertained us with excerpts from "Grease" and the band "Queen".

    Ongoing Reminders

    1.  Please remember the Four-way Test when directing comments and questions to speakers and other members. a) Is it the truth? b) Is it fair to all concerned? c) Will it build good will and better friendships? d) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
    2.  Once you have your guest speaker lined up for the meeting program, please email Carolyn Spencer at so that it can be included in the eBulletin.  
    3.  Please park at the YWCA, not in a Sterling Federal Bank lot/spaces.
    4.  Think of who you can invite to a meeting as a potential new member.
    5.  If you have to leave early from the meeting, as a courtesy, please apologize in advance to the speaker.
    6.  Please sit closer to the front of the room than to the back.  And try to sit with the new members whenever you can....get to know them....make them feel welcome.
    7.  Whenever you host a student guest, as you are chatting with him/her over lunch, please tell them about our club.  Tell them what to expect during the meeting;  the opening, fun & frolic, boots & shoes, etc.   Tell him/her about local and international service projects that Rotary is involved with.   Make them feel welcome.
