Greeting from President, Becky Mier!

Queen KathyAs I begin the Rotary year as your President, I have the opportunity to reflect on the reasons that I joined Rotary. I knew that I wanted to start by helping my community, but I also felt that in some small way I should reach out and help our global neighbors. From my first Rotary meeting, I learned the far-reaching impact of our individual efforts. At that meeting, I also began to meet new friends who came together for the same purpose, and we have fun along the way.

I hope to maintain that level of fellowship and enjoyment as we continue to build on our strengths and strive to reach those goals that attracted you to join Steinbeck Rotary.

We start off our year with a bang by selling fireworks on North Main Street and Alvin Drive. Many thanks to Sue Morris for submitting our application and to Jan Holmes for all the energy in recruiting the manpower to make this a successful fund-raising event. We say goodbye to Ben, our youth exchange student, but soon we will welcome Ombeline. Remember that we are DARK on July 1st; we will be at our fireworks booth all week. July 8th is our first official meeting of the year, and our club assembly will be the following week.

Before the year gets away from me, I want to express my gratitude to our new Board of Directors. This is an awesome group of individuals, and they have all helped by providing me with the foundation and support to lead this club. There are many more of you that continue to lend me a hand in so many ways—so thank you very much!

The theme for this Rotary year is Be a Gift to the World. This theme is close to my heart. I believe that each one of us has unique talents and resources to share with our local and global community. You can be a gift to the world!

Yours in Rotary Service,
Mama Becky
