Happy Bucks: $ 11.oo

If you care about your health, you have to be just as careful about what you put ON your body, as what you put IN your body. This interest led Tania Aranki to create her own products when she had trouble finding what she was looking for in the store. She told us her story at last Thursday's meeting and encouraged us to take better care of ourselves in this way. She makes all her product by hand in her home and they are available on the web at Thanks for a great presentation, Tania.

Has the cold knocked the Holiday spirit out of you, or have you tried to be as warm and optimistic as you felt during the holidays?   Keeping that spirit going when there is no holiday or time with family to look forward to means we have to find other ways to be positive. Setting goals and accomplishing good things are ways we become Christmas angels year around.
We Rotarians, of all people, must continue to be rays of sunshine to those around us or many folks might lose hope altogether.  Sometimes our voices may be the only positives people hear in a day at work, or shopping, or serving, or sharing.  Our smiles may be the only happy thing someone might see that day.  Our human warmth of spirit will help keep that holiday spirit going during times of cold weather, bad news, and problem-solving for those who are experiencing tough times.
Helping raise someone else’s spirits is rather like the song: “Make someone happy, Make just one someone happy . . .. And it will make you happy, too!”
