Also, wanted to recognize a local woman representing Creston at
the Nationals. Congratulations to Brenda Luke for a good finish for the
Ladies at the Nationals. Results below are:

This morning, I had the opportunity to make a presentation about blind golf to a great group of individuals with the Creston Rotary Club. It was a great pleasure to be included in their breakfast meeting and speak on behalf of blind golf. I also appreciated everyone's kind words of encouragement. I will take that positive encouragement with me to Australia.
Special thanks to Mr. Verne Lee for his kind hospitality and assistance through-out the meeting. I also wish the Creston Rotary Club much success in 2014, as this Club is always very active and supportive of our Community. Even though I'm visually-impaired, your work is never un-noticed by me.
Lastly, one member of the Rotary Club also took the time to come to my home one day to listen to my vision and blind golf advocacy. This was our Mayor, Mr. Ron Toyota. It was very much appreciated that he took time out of his very busy schedule to meet with me.
So "THANK-YOU" ALL ROTARIANS!!!!!
