We have reached the final issue of Grindings for 2022. I will be taking a break. Grindings will not be published on December 25, 2022, but will resume on January 1, 2023. We have already started to plan the new year. Take a moment to view the Club calendar for events in January 2023 and beyond. Registration is required for all events so that we can plan accordingly and send you additional information as needed. 
The Club continued its hybrid (i.e., meeting simultaneously in person and via Zoom) meetings in 2022. With the help of Social Chair Alisha Marfatia, President Christopher collaborated more with other Rotary clubs. President Christopher also tried more in-person only events such as the successful Fashion Show and Friend Raiser and 2022 Holiday Party. As of the publication of this issue, I have not received all of the information on the 2022 Holiday Party. The full story should be published in the next issue of Grindings
The Club added a new Board position. Scott Plakun became our Club's first Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. I am heartened that our Club is striving to better understand, respect, and welcome everyone. 
I want to thank you for being a part of my Rotary family as we wrap up 2022 and navigate in a post-pandemic "new world". I wish you joy during the holidays and peace and good health in the new year.
