District 6080 Governor Susan Haralson was on fire at Tuesday's (Aug. 7) Rotary Club of Springfield meeting! So inspiring as she outlined her "3 goals for the Rotary year":

1. Take the 365 days of kindness challenge. "We are kind people, We are Rotarians."
2. Hold a fundraiser for PolioPlus this year (Oct. 24 is World Polio Day) and donate all proceeds to PolioPlus.
3. Increase membership through personal relationships and social media.

And P.S.: Have FUN! See more from Susan at Rotary6080.org.
