On Thursday January 23, 2020 the Louisa Rotary Club #3773, District # 6740 held their weekly rotary meeting. The meeting started out with prayer led by Tommy Thompson, followed by members saying “The Pledge of Allegiance” and The Four Way Test. This test is made up of four questions that everyone should ask themselves before speaking with others. The questions are: 1. Is it the truth? 2. Is it fair to all concerned? 3.Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Afterwards they listened to catchy little R-O-T-A-R-Y song.
President Elaine DeSario started the meeting out with welcoming everyone ( They had a great turnout today). She stated that she is starting a history book for the club, she has received a few items, including a songbook so far. If anyone has any Louisa Rotary memorabilia they would like to donate, she would appreciate it.
The Rotary Club is working on their 2020 Annual Louisa Golf Scramble, as this is one of their big fundraisers. Another project they are working on is helping other clubs in India which is where member Dr. Akshay Goel is from.
