Somebody Has To
by Shel Silverstein

Somebody has to go polish the stars,
They’re looking a little bit dull.

Somebody has to go polish the stars,
For the eagles and starlings and gulls
Have all been complaining they’re tarnished and worn,
They say they want new ones we cannot afford.

So please get your rags
And your polishing jars,
Somebody has to go polish the stars.

And that is what people of Action do.

I am so proud to begin my term as President of the Rotary Club of Binghamton.

For decades, long before I became a member, Rotary, around the world and right here in Binghamton, had been home to those who “polish the starts”. Our club has always strived to find new and innovative ways to take action.

I am excited to represent the club as its President.

I cannot thank my predecessor, Jesse Katten, enough for his kindness and patience in helping me transition into my term.

And I thank each of our members for their personal efforts to keep this amazing club moving forward. We all have a hand in helping drive the innovation that makes Rotary viable and vaulable to our community.

I look forward to an exciting year ahead. Please join me, as I reach for my poishing jar.

Jackie Sands
President 2018-2019
