Greetings, Valley View Rotary family and friends!!! 
Thank you to everyone that attended last week's program with Pat Stephens and a few of the organizations that contributed volunteer hours to the success of last year's Rotary Lights!
"Community impact feels best when we receive each day as a gift and live every day as the holiday that it is, connecting with others to the benefit of those served and extending the memories of each rotation into the future." - Unknown

Please join us this week as Janie Morgan enlightens us on Rotary Works and its impact in our community.  See you Wednesday!

Oh yes, tennis! Well I am happy to report that I did fare better than my 5th place Detroit Tigers sitting at the bottom of the AL Central.  I had a fun afternoon on Friday with Earth on the West Salem tennis courts.  It was a lovely day for tennis.  Earth walked away with the trophy, winning our one set we played 7-5.
