Rotary Club International

You might not know this, but my handsome husband is very involved in several civic and charitable organizations. One of these is the Leavenworth Chapter of Rotary International.

Tonight, the Rotary Club had its Christmas Party. Every year we all bring wrapped gifts, and there is an auction to bid on these gifts - that are wrapped up, and you usually have no idea whatsoever what you are bidding on.

It is a wonderful, fun fund raiser, and they did quite well tonight. We had a lovely sit down dinner and drinks and a chocolate bar for dessert. Yum.

We sat with our friends, Mike and Gloria, and had a good time with them and the other great folks at our table. There was a program, where the president of Rotary, Julie, gave out nice awards to people who have worked on different projects.

But then, she called John up, and he started speaking, and he gave me a Paul Harris Fellowship in front of everyone. I know, it may sound silly, but it seemed just downright romantic for him to honor me in front of all people.

Rotary is a service organization that has been around for a very long time. It has many projects.

Rotary International is the spearheading member of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative and is the largest private sector donor. It has contributed more than US$600 million to the polio eradication activities in 122 countries.

Anyway, I am very proud to be a Paul Harris Fellow, and I thank my handsome husband for his efforts with all my heart.
