1. “Another fresh new year is here . . .

Another year to live!

To banish worry, doubt, and fear,

To love and laugh and give!


This bright New Year is given me

To live each day with zest

To daily grow and try to be

My highest and my best!


I have the opportunity

Once more to right some wrongs,

To pray for peace, to plant a tree,

And sing more joyful songs!”

Quote by William Arthur Ward
