Dear fellow Rotarians: 

Ask any Rotarian what led them to Rotary, and you’ll usually get different answers. Why? Not only does Rotary mean different things to members in different parts of the world, it also has a unique meaning for each Rotarian. 

However, we are all brought together in three important ways. We believe in Rotary values and all share the same Four Way Test. We believe in friendships and love spending time together. And we take great satisfaction in helping others – we are committed to Service. 

The District Board has assumed important responsibilities and I thank them for this hard work. They have made a commitment to help grow Rotary, adapt to the digital future and make Rotary more appealing to younger generations. 

We have important work in front of us and so many opportunities to open for others and ourselves. 

I hope you will continue your journey with us, as we continue to serve our communities so that future generations can thrive as Rotary Opens Opportunities.
