Farewell, it means goodbye, describes a departure…..This is my last day as President of the Rotary Club of Plattsburgh Sunrise and luckily I do not have to say farewell. I am blessed to be able to continue to work with a club full of wonderful, committed, intelligent and sometimes outrageous people. What other group of people are so lively at 7:30 a.m.?
I will admit that this has been my favorite year so far in Rotary because I was able to interact with everyone in many different capacities. Every Tuesday started off with the Tom and Gerry show and then we enjoyed each other and learned from great speakers and visitors. We worked and played together on projects and activities from Winter Carnival to Literacy Challenge to Mayor’s Cup and so on.
When I first joined Rotary, I really didn’t understand its true meaning. Today I have a better understanding of its mission of service and fellowship, but I know I have so much more to learn. I look forward to being part of the club for years to come and carrying out its mission:
The mission of the Rotary Club of Plattsburgh Sunrise is to make a positive impact in
 the lives of our members, and within our communities, by providing opportunities
 for service and leadership at the local and international levels.  We achieve this
through a committed, diverse and knowledgeable membership made stronger
 through project work, fellowship and fun. 
Thank you for an amazing journey!
Yours in Rotary,
Cheryl A. Lesser
