Presidents Message: Oct. 29, 2014

I hope that each of you who were at last week’s visit and heard our District Governor Larry Skaggs speech enjoyed it as much as I did. Our District Governor is a very down to earth person who is easy to talk to and enjoyable to listen too also. The story he told about learning to share with those less fortunate than himself at an early age was very touching and heartwarming, plus being based on a true event in his life made it even more touching. Many times in the past when I have written the Presidents Message I have spoken about the moment when a person goes from being a Rotary Member to becoming a Rotarian. Each of us has a different event in Rotary that changed us from just being a member to believing and knowing what we do makes a difference in some one’s life.
On the 19th of November we each have a chance to participate on one of our few hands on projects with our book giveaway at Homeless Connect, the once a year community event to provide services in one place for the valley’s homeless population. Giving books away may not seem like much of anything to us but it really means a lot to the people who are receiving them and they are very thankful.
Remember we need your books hardbound or paperback, we need you help to set up the booth and we need your help during the event. Ask your friends if they have some books they would like to donate, clean out your bookcase or garage of those old books you have already read. The number one book ask for is a dictionary, who would have thought. I have sixteen cases of books in my garage right now and this only a fraction of what we need, last year we gave away over 3000 books. If you have books you would like to donate contact me and we will make arrangements as to where to bring them or in some cases we can pick them up. Email me at club@lvcentralrotary.com or call me at 702 768-7530 to learn more or to donate books or money for this project………..
