 Program for Dec 19th - This weeks program was the great performance by the Glens Falls High School Octet who sang songs and danced to the music.  It should be noted that they are actually more than a group of 8 and have somewhere around 20 students who performed for us.  We were delighted to see them and look forward to have them perform again next year at this time.    
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkak, and a Happy New Year.  I can't believe that our Rotary year is now half over.  The many working committees have helped this be a smooth transition for me.  Thanks to all of you who have made this possible. As our activities wind down over the few weeks, let us reflect on the past few months and prepare and plan for the upcoming future.  Spring will show up as well as our activities such as the 5K race on April 25, 2020 and hopefully the Fishing Derby in early May.  We are still looking for a project lead for this event which is for the young children and their parents.  I know the Interact and RYLA groups will continue over the next few months and may be looking for volunteers.  Other events such as the Jenkinsville Soccer Tournament will then follow.  So while our activities subside in January, February and March, Rotarians will be still be engaged for the upcoming year.  I hope all of you who are on committees continue with your efforts and hope new members find ways to contribute.  Thank you all.
