The October 9, 2020 ZOOM York Rotary Meeting was started with a positive word from one of our newest members, Jim Duper.  
"Studies have shown that volunteering is so good for the mind and body that it can ease symptoms of stress and depression. Tapping into our gifts and passions builds self-confidence, energy, and strength.  Serving others can also be the best distraction from our own worries. 
We make all sorts of rational explanations for not serving:
I don’t have time.
I don’t know what I would do.
I don’t have any special skills to contribute.
They don’t need me.
Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal and not wound."
These words reflect what Rotary is all about~ Thank you Jim!
