Dear Rotarians:

I decided that my gift to all of you this Holiday Season would be a "short and sweet" District Governor letter for the month of December.  Rotary International dedicates the month of December to the Family.  This dedication is very appropriate and we should all enjoy our families during this Holiday Season.

Try to spend extra time with your family and be thankful for what each family member contributes.  Enjoy the special times that the Holidays provide to be with families, enjoy families and give thanks for our families.

Your Rotary Club might want to have a speaker on Maternal and Child Health, as that is one of Rotary's ares of focus.  Thus is the Rotary area of focus that directly relates to the family.

Sue and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah and Best Wishes for a Healthy, Happy New Year.

Thank you for all you do for Rotary.

Yours in Rotary Service,
Bill Bassett
