Sweetheart Breakfast this Friday
Bring your sweetie for our Sweetheart Breakfast this Friday, February 15.
If they truly love you, they will get up early and go to Rotary!

When we have children,
They will watch no television.
No screens.
We will be different from those other parents,
And we will take pride in our being better.

Fast-forward seven years,
And it’s Sunday morning,
6 A.M.
Do you know who our friend is?
SpongeBob SquarePants, that’s who.
And, yes, you can have Mentos for breakfast.

For more of his poems, click here, or buy his book here.
