Something for every Rotarian

Whether you’ve just joined Rotary or are a longtime club member, our annual convention will deepen your understanding and appreciation of Rotary. You’ll make personal connections on a global scale, discover new ideas for making positive change, and return to your club inspired and energized to take action. All this and the chance to explore Korea’s capital, Seoul.

Be A Gift To The World - K. R. Ravindran   Rotary International President 2015 - 2016
"This is our time. It will not come again. Let us grasp it."
Being a Rotarian means leading a dynamic life.  Or does it?  If you go to our web page for District 7190 and see all of the exciting events taking place and you're not involved in one of them, ask yourself, "why not?"  We Rotarians have so many ways to make our communities a better place to live.  If there isn't an activity that you are involved in, then what do you want to do?  If you don't know, but you want to be involved in your community affairs, go to Rotary International on the web and take a look at what is happening there.  If you still can't find anything, give me a call - I am looking for some volunteers for our District Public Relations Committee to work with PDG Melissa Ward (Twin Bridges), the Membership Committee  to work with Jennifer Hendricks-Fogg (Capital District)  and the District Conference Committee to work with my son, Milan (Rotterdam Sunrise).  BTW, the District Conference is being held in Lake Placid, May 13-15.  You can  now register on line. Rotary really needs your help.  As an individual we can tackle some projects, but as a group of  Rotarians, we can pretty much do anything we set our minds to do.  Look out Polio - you're almost gone!  So, if you're still wondering what to do and don't want an answer, don't call me.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
We are neighbors, community leaders, and global citizens uniting for the common good. With you, we can accomplish even more.
