Happy February everyone! 
This month has many celebrations and observances including black history month, Lunar New Year, American Heart Month, Valentine’s Day, and our own Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention month. In addition, we will celebrate Rotary International’s 117th anniversary on February 23.  That is truly something to celebrate!
With all these observances and celebrations, we decided to focus our monthly message on love… and our love for Rotary International.
Each of us is dedicated to making our world a better place and helping our communities, otherwise we wouldn’t be here.  And while we all have our own reasons for joining this organization, what about why you stay?  What is it about Rotary that you feel passionate about?  Maybe you want to provide education to our youth, or provide clean water to areas in need, or maybe you met your best friend who travels with you from convention to convention?  Whatever your reasons, we are happy and grateful that you have chosen this organization and are serving our communities with us.
We are also excited to bring everyone back together at our District Assembly on March 26th!  Let’s show all our clubs and incoming club leadership some love, so don’t miss out on this fun event!

Have a great month everyone!!
