Hope Springs: Gratitude and Giving Back to Make a Life

by Stacy McNeiland
 Spring marks a time of renewal, and this spring, the world seems to need renewal a little bit more than usual. The last two years have marked unprecedented challenges and changes. A pandemic … war in Europe … it can all feel overwhelming. 

But as we watch the grass start to turn green and buds appear on stems long dormant, there are signs of hope. People are leaving their homes again, returning to time spent with friends and family. 

Gathering together now feels like a glorious luxury, and for that luxury, I for one am grateful. Want to find hope in these troubling times? For me, gratitude and giving back are the water wings that do the trick.  Luckily, there are abundant opportunities to give back in our community and live our rotary values day in and day out.



New Rotarians

Tim Berney will introduce new rotarians Agnieszka Rakhmatullaev, Staci Sanger, Julie Bisbee, and Tyler Larsen.   

A Message from President Jerrod Shouse

Dear Rotarians,

Throughout the course of the pandemic, our Club Officers and Board of Directors have continued to evaluate and adjust meeting protocols as needed to protect the health of our members, guests, and the community at large. With the decline in COVID-19 cases in our community, and in accordance with current CDC guidelines, we will no longer ask members to wear a mask during our Tuesday luncheons effective Tuesday, March 22, 2022

While masks are no longer requested, we understand that there are those in our club who may be immunocompromised or prefer to wear a mask. As such, we will continue to make masks available for use at the registration table. 

Additionally, we will continue to live stream our meetings and continue to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 developments to adjust our approach as needed. 

We appreciate all of our members’ patience and understanding as we continue to navigate these changing circumstances. Please contact a member of the board or the Rotary office if you have any questions.
