The holidays are here and that signals the halfway point of our Rotary year. I want to thank all of you who have shown up each week to our meetings, whether it was in person in West Hollywood or on Zoom – and to our many events which culminated this month with the Angel City Celebration, our amazing LA5 Holiday Party, and Bell Ringing with the Salvation Army.  We’ve been a very active Club this year and I hope that you’ve found comfort and joy in being back together with your fellow Rotarian's – for service and for fun! And to our members who have not been able to join us for health or other reasons, please know that we are thinking of you and look forward to the day when we can do Rotary together once again!

We have an exciting second half of our Rotary year planned and I’m hopeful that we will navigate smoothly past the inconveniences and challenges that COVID continues to bring. More importantly, I hope that you and your loved ones remain healthy and can share a wonderful holiday season together.

Rotary is a very special organization because of our members! I’m proud to serve as your President and to serve our community alongside each of you!

I wish you and yours a safe and healthy holiday season and I look forward to doing Rotary together – with you – in 2022!
