President Fred’s Message

Fellow RCCC Members, Another exciting Rotary month for us as we found out how much all that Oktoberfest hard work paid off.  Thank you for everyone that participated- our Service project recipients also thank you! An exciting moment in the month for me was spending some time with our friends at F.R.I.E.N.D.S.  On November 5th, …

President Fred’s Message

As I stated last month, I love the brisk mornings of fall along with the changing color of the leaves.  What a beautiful time of year in Frederick. Speaking of something beautiful, how about the “Rotary” clock along Carroll Creek.! Kudos to Patty McGill for spearheading our 20th anniversary gift to the city. October has …

President Fred’s Message

Fellow Rotarians, I don’t know about you but crisp fall mornings really energize me.  And just like the weather, our Club energizes me with all the activities and fellowship that we experience, every month, week, and day. Thank you!!! We began September with an inspirational talk from Wounded Warrior, Joe Bowser, who encouraged us to …

President Fred’s Message

As I look back on my first month I can’t believe how quick it went.  We started out July with Jonathan Warner presenting a Paul Harris to Estelle Jacobs a Rotary President from South Africa.  Jonathan pulled a great surprise on Estelle, who was very deserving.  Then we were honored to have the first visit …

President’s Peaceful Peace

President’s Peaceful Piece May 2013

Two years ago President Olivia approached me to lead the strategic planning process for our club.  After much reflection, I accepted the challenge and, with a fabulous team of RCCC members, RCCC’s Strategic Performance Plan for the next three years was created.  One of my directives as the leader and future President was to make …

President’s Peaceful Piece

It is snowing, it is March 25 and it is hard to accept that this is the fifth day of spring! As with all changes, we need to adapt and change our course and sometimes even lead adventures that may seem wrought with impossibilities, negative reactions or just might be the right thing to do …

President’s Peaceful Piece

When I saw my Rotarian magazine this month, I smiled as the cover shouts out in big font, The Joys of Reading with a person carrying a stack of books. That stack of books is similar to the one next to my bed as I pile the books that I am currently reading and the …
