"Be a Gift to the World"

Welcome to a new Rotary year and our new Rotary theme: “Be a Gift to the World”

Rotary International president K.R. (Ravi) Ravindran from Sri Lanka is asking us to give of ourselves to others so that the world will be richer because we passed through it.  Every one of us has something to give – whoever we are, whatever our place in life.  We can give our talent, our knowledge, our abilities and our effort; we can give our dedication, our devotion and our resources.  Through Rotary, we can take these gifts and make a genuine difference in the lives of others.

Sally and I are very excited to be visiting the many clubs of District 5370 over the next six months.  We look forward to learning about the diversity within and between our clubs.  We will share ideas between clubs and from Rotary International.  We look forward to seeing all the different ways Rotarians can “Be a Gift to the World”.  Our travels will take us from Fort Nelson, BC, to Battleford, SK, and from Yellowknife, NT, to Wetaskiwin, AB.  Please follow us on our adventure through our blog at https://governorstravels.wordpress.com/.

Enjoy, Rotary! We will see you along the road!

Tim & Sally

Image Rotary Friendship Exchanges are when Rotarians travel to another District in the world.   You are hosted by Rotarians who show you their region. They then come to our District, you host and show them our region.  It is purely for fun and friendship. A fantastic way to travel the world and make friends with people you have something in common with: Rotary! Plans are under way for exchanges in the coming year and it should include you!  Click this page for complete details.  http://serviceaboveself.ca/rfe/
