I’ve already mentioned this in a prior post, making new friends is possibly the greatest benefit of my Rotary membership.  I have met some of the most generous and talented individuals.  They give of their talent, their resources and most of all their time.  We all see each other when we travel great distances to gather for training, conferences, and recognition.

One Rotarian who stands head and shoulders above everyone else is PDG Terry Ziegler.  Terry is from District 5890, Greater Houston, TX.  Terry has a passion for Polio Eradication and has served for several years as the district 5890 Polio Plus chair and most recently as the Assistant Rotary Regional Foundation Coordinator.  It is a pleasure to call Terry a friend, and be able to share his weekly newsletter with all of you each week.  I hope that you find it helpful and share it with your club mates.  Please scroll down to see archived copies of Terry’s weekly newsletter.

Thank You Terry,
