CEDAR RAPIDS NOON
Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Iowa
Years of Service -- Chartered May 6, 1920
November is my second favorite month (my favorite being December). November is the month for the big family Thanksgiving dinner. (December is the month the kids come back for an extended visit). Mary and I are just returning from a trip to visit our sons (DC and Canada). Seeing those lives unfold helps me think about the things I’m thankful for. I’d like to share part of my list: I’m thankful for
•Sharing my life with a woman who overlooks my many faults and focuses on the positives.
•Having two sons with happy marriages and a plan for life that they are progressing along.
•Two wonderful granddaughters that are perfect angels and curious, interesting little people.
•A career that provided me with challenges, joys and a great many
•Financial security (knock on wood) to enjoy retirement.
•A life relatively free of tragedy and strife. I think this is largely a matter of luck. I didn’t chose my parents, where I was born or when I was born. I recently watched “Machine Gun Preacher” on Netflix. Interesting movie (stick with it and get past the beginning). I’m very thankful I wasn’t born a child in the Sudan....I’m looking forward to our club meeting on November 7. The focus for that meeting will be on how each member can draw what they need from the club and contribute
what they wish. My plan for the meeting is to first ask each officer and committee chair to briefly describe their duties and how other members might contribute to those efforts. Following a group discussion, expect to spend a few minutes completing a brief assessment to help me better understand your desires. Please make every effort to attend this meeting. If you can’t be there, give me a call any time after Nov 7
and I’ll fill you in.
Yours in Lionism
