Mesa West Rotarians
Wow!  What a special meeting we had last week – 50 members and guests, plenty of enthusiasm, laughs, happy bucks, and a marvelous induction of Rick DePonte conducted by Chuck Flint.  I am excited to be your President this year.  Together with our experienced and energetic board, we’re working hard to make this a very special year.  Our theme is “Put Life Into Rotary – Your Life”.  I encourage all Mesa West members to attend as often as possible, bring a friend or spouse or invite a Rotarian that hasn’t joined us in a while.
Recently, you received a notice about our Sponsor’s Program.  If our entire membership gets behind this drive, we are certain to pass our $30,000 goal.  Soon we will divide up into teams and start our “Steak and Beans” competition.  Should be a lot of fun!  Let me  or Bryan Goetzenberger  know if you have any questions.
This week our speaks are Emilee Goetzenberger and Keegan Olson from our Youth Exchange program.  With youth lies our future and these are two amazing young ladies.  We encourage you to come out and hear about their adventures, both planned and past.  Several activities are planned this year with Westwood High School Interactors and ASU Rotaractors.
Special thanks go to Jeanie Morgan, the editor of the Mesa West Messenger.  I don’t plan to bore you with my thoughts every week.  I thought periodically would be fun and it is!
Yours in Rotary,
