I send you warm greetings and well wishes. I send prayers of support to you and your loved ones who may be experiencing an illness, injury, surgery, treatment, grief, trauma, or loss. Even though we may not have direct contact, please know that in the fellowship of Rotary we are with you in spirit and wish you well.
The first month has been a wonderful experience meeting you during your club meetings, special programs, installation ceremonies, workshops, workgroups, committee meetings, and so much more. I had been looking forward to meeting with you in person, but for the safety of all concerned I had to limit myself to virtual and outdoor venues for at least the first six months of this Rotary year. While not ideal, the personal zoom experience has connected me in ways I never thought possible.

Aloha to Rotarians, Rotaractors, and members of the family of Rotary. Although we will not be together in Honolulu, we can still share our Aloha spirit at the Virtual Convention.
