Jim, I am aware that you are a professional speaker, and all that. And I fully understand that you extended a great courtesy to our group of incoming Rotary club presidents by agreeing to the arrangements to come to our training seminar. Really, I expected a terrific performance. But I didn’t expect all that you gave us. I should have seen it coming when we chatted briefly…I knew you were more than a traveling performer when I noticed the stack of hand written notes at your elbow. You were delightfully pleasant, but it was clear that you -- preparing a talk I presume you’ve done once or twice before – were preparing even more. Then I heard you speak. For us, you knew our beloved Rotary. You know it in detail. And you understand P.E.T.S. visions and goals. And your talk not only reflected that knowledge – your talk enabled some of our hopes and dreams for our P.E.T.S. So, your presentation wasn’t a mere reflection of our P.E.T.S. goals, it became a major part of the substance of our accomplishments. I think that you are more than a professional! — David V. Cresson, Program Director, Rotary P.E.T.S.
