Where Leaders Are Made

Where Leaders Are Made

I am sad to say Earleen Norris passed away yesterday.  She was a good friend to all the members of District 39.  She was a Past International Director and a member of District 39 for many years.   Earleen moved down to Riverside California to be closer with her grand children.  The following is a Facebook quote from Earleen’s son – David Howard:

“Hi Folks, My mother Earleen Norris passed away yesterday. Mom had an infinite capacity for love, gratitude, and giving. My mom touched a lot of lives, many who I don’t even know. So please LIKE this post if you would like to be invited to a SoCal memorial in the coming weeks, I need to get an idea of what kind of venue it should be in. My mother supported several charities, so info on charity you can give to in her memory is forth coming. In the meantime, you can do any of the following to honor her.

1) Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while
2) Have a Root Beer Float
3) Go to Palm Springs, Vegas, or on a cruise.
4) Play the nickel slots
5) Volunteer for an organization that helps people get back on their feet and really COMMIT to it
6) Eat a snack size M&Ms
7) Engage someone you don’t know that well.
8) Tell your kids you love them in public, especially if they will get embarrassed.
9) Join a Toastmasters club… or start one of your own (see #7)
10) Visit a small chapter of your church. Listen and engage.
11) Give someone a big hug (let them release first)
12) Always say “Please” and “Thank You” to your waiter. Well, everyone, but especially your waiter. Carry a tip card.

Remember the words of Mary Baker Eddy, “Lo, I am with you always, watch and pray” Here is a picture of her and the man she called “her little joy””  – David Howard
