  • Growing Pains by Laura St. Louis
  • Online Club Officer Training Registration
  • World Championship of Public Speaking Party


by Laura St. Louis, DTM

During the summer when I was 12 years old, I had the worst pain in my legs. They hurt day and night. My mom rubbed my legs in hopes of alleviating the pain, but the pain always came back when she stopped. By the end of the summer, to everyone’s surprise, I grew four inches!

Personal growth can also be painful; however, pain can lead to substantial results. We are able to learn from those times of least success. There is pain in knowing we did not meet goals. But realizing something could have been better is growth. Growth can be painful but can create opportunities for improvement.

Our District 62 had events we could consider “learning moments” over quite a few years. As we endure the pain from admitting we could have done something different and got better outcomes, we can also celebrate our growth and our opportunity to create something better.

Imagine, 15 New Clubs for District 62! What an exciting opportunity! What’s the most important lesson so far? We can’t do it alone: UNITED WE SUCCEED!
