Happy New Year Valley View Rotary family and friends!!! 
Hope everyone is excited to come together on Wednesday and share their stories on how they rang in the new year! I am excited to report that I spent the final hours of last year celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary.  
Our speaker this week will be Joe Rusky who will share with us all we should know about the Rotary Foundation.
It is amazing to experience the growth we are experiencing this Rotary year and the number of initiatives we have started and are in process!!!I added the committee membership document to Club Runner.  It can be accessed here:  Feel free to add or edit assignments as you would like or let me know and we can handle it.
