From the President Andre's Desk

Time and health are two precious assets

that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.

-Denis Waitley

Look to your health; and if you have it,

praise God and value it next to conscience;

for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of,

a blessing money can't buy.

-Izaak Walton

Volunteer Readers Needed

We have opportunities for six Rotarians to read to Hand in Hand students on Friday, February 8 at 8:15a.

It's a very short book called "Pigsty" that shouldn't take but a few minutes of your time.

Please contact Trent Reynolds at trent@tcpls.org if you would like to read.

ABC's of Rotary

The Official Rotary Flag
An official flag was formally adopted by Rotary International at the 1929 Convention in Dallas, Texas. The
Rotary flag consists of a white field with the official wheel emblem emblazoned in gold in the centre of the
field. The four depressed spaces on the rim of the Rotary wheel are coloured royal blue. The words "Rotary"
and "International" printed at the top and bottom depressions on the wheel rim are also gold. The shaft in the

hub and the keyway of the wheel are white.

USA Map Service Project Painting

The date has been set for Saturday, February 9th to paint the USA Map at Garrison-Pilcher school.

8a - 2p

We need 10-12 volunteers to assist in this project. All it takes is a willing heart. Supplies will be provided.

The map will be located on the courts to the right of the school's circular driveway.

Let Susan O'Neal know if you can join in on the fun for the day.

More on
The Rotary Foundation

Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education are basic necessities for a healthy environment and a productive life.

When people have access to clean water and sanitation, waterborne diseases decrease, children stay healthier and attend school more regularly, and mothers can spend less time carrying water and more time helping their families.

How Rotary makes help happen

Through water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs, Rotary’s people of action mobilize resources, form partnerships, and invest in infrastructure and training that yield long-term change.
