Happy New Year!  May each of you have a Very Joyous New Year.  As we start 2018 and the second half of the 2017/2018 Rotary Year, I am excited to see what activities we will enjoy as Rotarians, and what blessings we, as Rotarians, will bring to our fellow citizens of the World.  
In January we are looking forward to inducting two new members into the Club.  We will also be working on our bylaws so that we can accept corporate members into the Club.  February will bring a special project in which all members will participate.  In March and April we will be updated on The Society of Women Engineers and Shelter Box.  May brings our annual District Conference, this year at Mackinac Island.  And June will bring our Annual Liberty Fest Beverage Tent and Rotary Meet the Governor Night. 
Along with these activities, we will fill in with speakers and Club events to keep all of us busy and involved.  Make sure you free up Mondays at noon to see what the New Year will bring.

Club Christmas Party
On Monday, December 18, 2017, we met for the last time in 2017 as we celebrated our Club Christmas Party.  We enjoyed the evening at Antonio's with a delicious dinner and a gift auction.  Each member brought a wrapped Christmas gift.  The gifts were then auctioned off along with a large gift.  The results of this auction were $121 in proceeds donated to the Salvation Army, and an evening of fun and laughter. 
Salvation Army Bell Ringing
On Saturday, December 16th, the Canton Rotarians rang bells for the Salvation Army at Buschs' Market.  Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped us in this endeavor.  Yes, it was cold, but the fellowship that we shared kept us all warm.
