 President Schilling began with the Rotary International Theme for 2002-2003
                               Sow the Seeds of Love

 His interpretation: Get to work and do something good!

 Club Goals for the Year:

 Regular community service projects will be shorter in duration and plentiful

 Donate fair share to Rotary International to eradicate polio
    Wipe out by 2005
     Only 10 countries left
     Only $80 million needed to eliminate polio
 Has set aside $15,000 in budget to match our contributions to the polio plus fund
 Have $2,000 already! Only need $200/member to exceed this goal.
