From the Governor’s Desk
Out new Rotary year with the theme of Rotary Serving Humanity is well under way. I have spent the better part of the month of July on the road visiting clubs.
I thought I knew a little about Rotary or at least our District. Man, was I wrong. I am truly over-whelmed by all the things the clubs in this District are doing.
We have small clubs doing big projects. Large clubs are doing monster projects. Then there are all the projects that clubs, both large and small, are doing that almost go unnoticed because they will never hit the 6 pm news or the newspaper. How-ever, they make an enormous difference in the lives of a small group of people.
Oftentimes, these projects are the most rewarding because if not for a Rotarian’s intervention, the situation would be hopeless. Giving hope to the hopeless is what Rotarians are all about. So we quietly go about the business of miracles.
I am truly humbled to be part of such an amazing group of Rotarians. Keep up the good work. Humanity needs you.
