It was a balmy 70 degrees at the shore this Wednesday, probably even higher at the EH YMCA where a bunch of Rotarians were gathered to pack bags of candy for the upcoming Trunk or Treat event at Rentschler field. The rest of the club joined via Zoom. After the pledge, Dierdre Stolte gave a gardener's invocation which is shared below. 
 
How to Plant Your Garden
 
First you come to the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses...
 
For the Garden of your Daily Living, Plant three rows of peas:
  1. Peace of mind
  2. Peace of heart
  3. Peace of soul
 
Plant four rows of squash:
  1. Squash gossip
  2. Squash indifference
  3. Squash grumbling
  4. Squash selfishness
 
Plant four rows of lettuce:
  1. Lettuce be faithful
  2. Lettuce be kind
  3. Lettuce be obedient
  4. Lettuce really love one another
No garden should be without turnips: 
  1. Turnip for meetings
  2. Turnip for service
  3. Turnip to help one another
To conclude our garden, We must have thyme: 
  1. Thyme for God
  2. Thyme for study
  3. Thyme for prayer
 
Caring Moments
  • Doug Willett shared that Stacy and Wes Willett's son, Army Specialist Lucas Tourville, is finally coming home to CT. He has been bedridden for several months with multiple strains of Lyme Disease as well as mold. The Army physicians were less than helpful, first refusing to believe that he was sick at all, and then not accepting the diagnosis that was made by a non-army physician. Thanks to the intervention of Congressman John Larson as well as the local Congresswoman in the state of Washington,  (where he is stationed), he is now being allowed to come back to CT where there are friends and family that can help take care of him while he recovers.

District Governor’s message re. The Rotary Foundation:
ROTARY’S POLIO CHALLENGE
 
Since 2013, the Gates Foundation has matched every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication 2-to-1. In January 2020, the Gates Foundation announced that they will continue to match 2:1 every new dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication up to $50 million per year through 2023!
 
Rotary has contributed more than $2 billion to fight polio, including matching funds from the Gates Foundation, and countless volunteer hours since launching its polio eradication program, PolioPlus, in 1985.
 
You can help end polio by making a gift to the PolioPlus Fund at endpolio.org.
 
Until next week - Wes Willett
