Thanksgiving invocation

When we gather with family,

some we like and some we don’t,

we can be thankful that Thanksgiving is just one day

and we don’t have to be together all the time.

When we gather with Rotary,

some we like and some we don’t,

we can be thankful that while Rotary is every week,

we can work together all the time

Let us be thankful for the disparate views

of the world that help us be more effective

at making a difference in our community

and in our world.

Margaret Mead said,

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

 

Let us be thankful for the small group of committed people who, with your help tonight, are changing the world

one lunch,

One polio vaccination

One dental filling

One community project at a time.

Let us be thankful for the opportunity to gather together for a good meal with good friends.

Let us be thankful.
