Dec. 18. 2008 – Sixty-five plus Rotarians, spouses, children, grandchildren and friends were present for the Family Holiday Party. President Mike Hayes opened the meeting thanking Rotarians for their good work on various projects such as Polio-Plus and the Tree Fest.  This was followed by two readings: Charles Hayes read No Matter What and Andrew Hayes read Are You Grumpy Santa. Pastor Mary Peterhaensel provided the invocation.  Following dinner, Art Bowen inducted new member Bill Clark with the assistance of sponsor Bob Soper.  Art introduced the “4 S’s” from Selinsgrove Area High School – Nicole Miller on bassoon; Megan Fisher on flute; Jordan Harris on sax (all seniors) and sophomore, Jacob Ross on baritone sax and piano. All are members of a variety of music activities at school and demonstrated talent and poise. Thanks are extended to Joyce Anderson and Art Bowen for all their work in setting up this event, and to Cathy Kline who decorated the tables.

Quotation: “It is a dangerous thing to ask why someone else has been given more. It is humbling – and indeed healthy – to ask why you have been given so much.”&
