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."
As most of you are aware, Rotary has designated each month of the year with a particular theme.  The month of August is designated as Membership and New Club Development Month – As you enjoy the “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” think about a friend, neighbor, or someone that works with you that might make a good Rotarian and ask them to join.  Remember there a lot of people out there that have never been asked to “join” Rotary.  You may be surprised on how many may take you up on the offer.
We are neighbors, community leaders, and global citizens uniting for the common good. With you, we can accomplish even more.



The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.
