Greetings, Valley View Rotary family and friends!!! 
Thank you to Grant Soper for speaking to us last week about his journey with friends along the Pacific Crest Trail.  I was in awe of their accomplishment and inspired to consider what we could achieve if we took one more step towards our goals and dreams. Their story was a reminder that with hard work, dedication and ambition, ANYTHING is possible. Let us take this inspiration and use it to propel us to reach us closer to our own goals and dreams this week!
You will want to be present, either in person or on Zoom this week to learn about Lucas Herro's journey and achievement!!!
Mobile Meals Sign-up is now live!
Club Assembly coming soon...
Our next Club Assembly is March 22nd.  I am asking all committees to address the following 4 questions and encouraging committees to meet prior to March 22nd if possible.  

1.  What are you most excited about accomplishing this year thus far?

2. Are there any committee accomplishments deserving of submitting for AOS recognition?

3.  What committee work is presently in the works?

4.  What support and/or resources/action do you need from the Board and/or Club members to further your committee's mission?

Here is the link to the Committee Membership Document which can be easily modified as desired:
