Hello My Rotarian Friends,
Rich and Tracy Roland warmed our hearts at last Thursday’s Meeting by thanking Secret Kindness Agent Rock Star for the loaf of homemade bread she/he left on their porch last week. Rich said the kindness of Suburban Rotarians is one of the many reasons they love being members of our club.
To the Rolands, to Agent Rock Star, to Agent Snoopy who left flowers on my doorstep, and to all of the many Suburban Rotarians who make our club special, thank you. You make Suburban Rotary Simply the Best!
Have a good week,
Mary Bernier
