I am honored to serve as President of the Richland Rotary Club. This year’s theme for Rotary International is “Light up Rotary”. We are each a light, along with the 1.2 million Rotarians around the world. Together we represent incredible energy. We will light up our community through our local projects, and we will add our candles’ influence to Rotary’s international work.
My dream for the upcoming year is to build on our history together in an environment that is fun and energetic. Some old traditions will be reborn; and some new traditions will be started. I hope to see lots of Rotarians doing lots of things—being visible in the community as we do our hands-on projects, busy in committees, and active in our weekly meetings. Richland Rotary will be alive and well in 10-20 years only if we evolve to a club that younger generations wish to serve in, and this year we will be on the path to make that happen as we Light up Rotary!
I look forward to working alongside each of you, and enjoying your fellowship as we serve together.
Yours in Rotary,

|About the people in our communities, local & international.||Our youth by sponsoring Youth Programs, Interact, and Rotaract||To promote peace, health, and education, both locally and internationally.|
Rotary is Making a Difference to End Polio
By the time the world is certified polio-free, Rotary's contributions to the global polio eradication effort will exceed $1.2 billion. Rotary is working with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help raise much needed funds to eradicate polio.
Aslo long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.
"If we all have the fortitude to see this effort through to the end, then we will eradicate polio." - Bill Gates
