ARE YOU AN ACTIVE MEMBER?

Are you an active member, the kind that would be missed?
Or are you just content, that your name be on the list?
Do you attend meetings, and mingle with the crowd?
Or would you rather stay at home, and complain long and loud?
Do you give a little time, and help to make things tick?
Or leave the work to just a few, and talk about the "clique"?
There’s quite a program schedule, that means success if done.
And it can be accomplished, with the help of everyone.
So come to all the meetings, and help with hand and heart;
Don’t just be another member, but take an active part.
Think it over member, Are you right or wrong?
Are you an active member, or do you just belong?
- Arthur I. Fischer
