Dear Magnolia Rotarians:
Happy New Year! Hope you had a fun on New Year's Eve.
Now that it is time to make those New Year Resolutions, may I suggest you add a few to your list:
+ + Invite a friend, neighbor, co-worker and or relative who you think would make a good Rotarian to
join you at a Thursday Noon meeting during the First Quarter of 2013.
+ + Put our Thursday Meetings, Noon sharp, on your mobile devise, mobile calendar or
reminder application as well as your Calendar at work. Thursday, Noon sharp. Do it now!
+ + Be on time to the Noon, Thursday Magnolia Rotary meeting.
Speaking of meetings, our gathering this week will feature "The State of Magnolia" by Mike Smith of LeRoux's. Get an insight on what going on in the Village as well as the Bluff. Thursday, Noon, SYC Elliot Bay Outstation, 2600 W. Marina Place.
Will will also have two special presentations at the meeting. Need to be there to find out what they are.
See you down by the waterfront.
