4) Get Excited!  The District Governor's Elect and the Empire MD PETS planning committee have arranged for some fantastic guest speakers and presenters.   Your year of President will be one that you remember as a high point of your "Rotary Career".  We look forward to you attending and participating at Empire MD PETS in March!
