Hello Emmaus Rotary,
By now I am sure everyone is done with their Holiday shopping and are fully ready for some egg nog and happy spirits.  It is a crazy time of year, however make sure you reflect on what is important.  With all the running around, parties, shopping, work, etc etc etc, it is easy to forget to take some time for yourself and appreciate your family and friends.
On January 2, 2020 from 3:00 - 5:00 PM Emmaus Rotary Members have the opportunity to help our Interact Students give back to the community.  We will be helping our Interact Students un-decorate The Trexler Family House at 1309 W Minor Street in Emmaus.  
The host parents, Greg and Laura Trexler decorate their house every year and collect donations they give in turn to Angel 34 Foundation, an effort to fight Pediatric Cancer.  They are both East Penn School Teachers.  Greg is an emotional support therapist.  The Interact Students have identified this as service they would like to assist in and are asking our help.
Pizza will be provided towards the end of the breakdown for anyone who participates.  Look out for sign up sheets at this Thursday's Meeting.  We are hoping for a great turnout from our Club Members.
Thursday's meeting will spark up your Holiday Spirit as we have a very special program scheduled with the Emmaus High School Chorale.  If there is a meeting you do not want to miss, it is Thursdays.  They will knock your socks off!
Here are some special notes to be aware of:
1) There will be a Board Meeting immediately following Thursday's Meeting
2) There is no regular meeting Thursday December 26th and January 2nd.
3) Our next regular meeting is Thursday January 9th at Brookside.
4) Brookside will be closed January 30 and February 6.  Keep your eyes on the Trumpet on the venue and times for those meetings.
Here is this month's Board of Directors Meeting Agenda
