Snows are melting; spring is come
This Rotary year is almost done.
As we reflect on projects from the year
upon our activities both far and near,
We’re thankful for successes enjoyed
We’re thankful for resources employed
in the service of others, in service of peace,
for in serving others our joys increase.
Let’s be thankful at this meeting for food and friends,
for hearts to serve and helpful hands.

I am taking this to the Rotary Club of Malone (NY) meeting tomorrow. Not sure if I will use it, as I’m filling in for someone else. If I don’t use it this week, I’ll probably use it in April as that is my month to do the invocations. Thanks for sharing this.
My pleasure. Greetings to the RC of Malone NY!

I like this very much, but I will have to change the top line to:
‘The sun is going; the rain will come’
as we are in the southern hemisphere and only get occasional snow on the mountain tops!
