Thanks to each and every one of you, Portsmouth Rotary's  2014 Annual Christmas Tree Sale has concluded with over 1500 trees sold to community members near and far.  This project takes many hands and I thank you all for contributing your time, effort and energy during this busy holiday season.  How lucky are we to have the opportunity to so richly serve the community and raise nearly $40,000 for our scholarship programs, local non-profit funding and other worthwhile community projects?  It truly is better to give than to receive.

Special thanks to our community partners such as the Interact Club, the Seacoast Mavericks as well as many friends and neighbors who joined our club in staffing many shifts this selling season!  We literally could not have pulled this off without these inspiring youth leaders and community members.  Our future is in very good hands!

If I could give you each something this Holiday Season, it would be the gift of knowing that your efforts, large or small, tangible, or simply in thought, really do make a difference.  As for me, I'll be ending 2014 with a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart.

In gratitude and with heartfelt appreciation, 


Happy Holidays!
