poem- service October 1, 2015

A Rotary Invocation poem:

.

Service happens in laughter and friendship.

Service happens in quiet conviction.

Service happens with firm intention.

Service happens in growing kinship

to all humanity in attention.

to Service Above Self.

  1. Rotary, the Lions, Kiwanis- All define service as a matter of consistency and perseverance.

    • Our little town- 15,000- has THREE very active Rotary Clubs, which always amazing people who come from away. One meets for breakfast, the other for lunch, and my club meets for dinner. We make a lot of difference in the world. 🙂
