Shragg Soak up the sun Affirm life's magic Be graceful in the wind Stand tall after a storm Feel refreshed after it rains Grow strong without notice Be prepared for each season Provide shelter to strangers Hang tough through a cold spell Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky Be still long enough to hear your own leaves rustling. Rotary Intemational The world's first ser- vice club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, was formed February 23, 1905 by Paul P. Harris, to capture in a profes- sional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth. The Rotary name dedved from the early practice of rotating meetings among members' offices. In 1945, 49 Rotary club members served in 29 delegations to the UN Charter Con- ference. Rotary still actively participates in UN conferences by sending observers to major meetings and covering the United Nations in its publica- tions. "Few there are who do not recognize the good work which is done by Rotary clubs through- out the free world," former Prime Minister Winston Churchill of Great Bdtain once declared. Today, 1.2 million Rotadans belong to over 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countdes and geo- graphical areas. Never put off till tomorrow, K'  whot you con do the doy efter tomorrow.
