Somehow during the past year all of the text and the links on this Home Page simply disappeared..... and I've been singularly unsuccessful to date in retrieving any of it. Moreover,I've been unusually uninspired toward recreating the text that led to all of my 300 or so pages and to several hundred
links to other websites. Of course, all of this was crafted over sixteen years of my increasing understanding of just how to use the internet as a tool.
So please bear with me as I attempt to muster the energy and enthusiasm to get back up to speed. And when this message finally disappears, you will know that I have succeeded. I do hope it is soon!
"Rotarians recognize that the future of Rotary is in our hands and that goodwill begins with us;
As Rotarians we both look beyond ourselves and
reach within to embrace humanity as we pursue Peace Through Service,
lead the way to lend a hand to those in needbecause
real happiness is helping others...
As leaders we must reach out to create awareness and take action.
We do what we believe in, we believe in what we do and
we act with integrity, consistency, credibility and continuity
in our personal lives, in our professions and in our communities.
We are reliable, we are available -- and we participate! Rotary brings hope to the world because we take time to serve.
Mankind is our business and service is our product. We sow seeds of love to create goodwill and better understanding as we build the future with action and vision in our local communities and throughout the world, promoting
