December, 2017
This month Paula and I were lucky to be guests of the Rotary Club of Brockton at their 100th Anniversary luncheon. It was held in conjunction with the Metro South Chamber of Commerce. MA Governor Charlie Baker was the speaker and we were totally impressed with his message. Takeaway: "In any disagreement, the loser is the one who doesn't listen." So true on every level. Congratulations, Brockton...a huge achievement.
In celebration of their Centennial, Brockton Rotarian Amy Korim contracted with Emmy award winning composer/pianist Randy Klein to compose a piece of music about Brockton commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Rotary Club of Brockton. More to come about the performance in April.
