The Rotary theme for July is New Leadership.  We are seeing new leadership with our new Rotary International President, Gordon McInally, our new Rotary International Director, Dan Himelspach, 69 new club presidents in District 5340 along with your new District Governor.  Yes, I am now including Rotaract clubs in our number as both Rotaractors and Rotarians are "People of Action" in District 5340.  July is a time for very exciting changes in Rotary, but it is also laced with a lot of continuity. 
Today, July 9th, is National Sugar Cookie Day.  To celebrate, this may be a good time to bake up a fresh batch and enjoy them with your friends and family. All you need is some sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and either baking powder or baking soda. Who knows, perhaps your batch of sugar cookies will help Create Hope in the World!
