Dave was asked about the HMB Historical Association – and he was pleased to announce the breaking ground of the new building that will incorporate the exterior of the Jail House

Club Meeting - April 22, 2021 


President Mary Rogren called the meeting to order.  Today is EARTH DAY!
Pledge of Allegiance - Rose Serdy led us in the Pledge

Inspiration Thought - Rose Serdy also shared these words of inspiration:   

" This world is but a canvas to our imagination" - Henry David Thoreau.  
Due to the George Floyd trial and recent shootings, I wanted to see what Rotary's position was on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,  so here is what their website states:
"As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation and gender identity."
"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background or his religion, People learn to hate and if they can learn to hate they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite>" - Nelson Mandela
Thankful for the heart of Rotary!
