Words for the wise... “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” George Eliot “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.” Mother Theresa “And this is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.” Libba Brey “Remember if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm… As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” Audrey Hepburn

“Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.” Theodore Roosevelt “What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.” Joseph Addison “Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.” Jamie Paolinetti

Congratulations on all your club progress, growth and accomplishments during the 20112012 school year! Keep up the fantastic work and service! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
