Greetings Emmaus Rotary Club,
I hope everyone had a VERY MERRY HOLIDAY so far and are ready to ring in 2020 with a punch!
Can you believe we are half way through this Rotary Year?  Where the heck does time go?  The older I get the more I understand sayings like, "Time Flies!" Life is Short!" "Where did the time go?" etc, etc.  I am so appreciative for everyone's support to our club during the first half of my Presidential year.  Proud, thankful and honored are on the top of that list as well.  
Our club continues to grow THANKS TO YOU!  Our club continues to make a positive and influential impact in and on our community and beyond THANKS TO YOU!  Our club is continually being used as an example for other Rotary Clubs THANKS TO YOU!
Moving into the first half of 2020, and the second half of this Rotary Year, all I ask is for you to continue doing what you are doing.  Our committees are meeting more regularly and getting more participation.  Our Board of Directors is focusing on delivering transparency and other items such as organizational improvements, education and review of our club's By-Laws and Constitution, overall club's financial health and so much more.
So keep staying involved and keep inviting more guests.  A lot of our member's have taken my challenge to bring one guest this Rotary year.  Thank You to those who have brought a guest already, and Thank You to those members working to get their first guest by June 30, 2020.   Everyone can use a little Rotary in their life.  Practice the Four Way Test and share it with others.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing everyone on January 9, 2020 when we resume our regular meeting schedule.
All the best,
Steve Gould
2019-2020 ERC President
