Happy New Year!
What a joyous time of year – a time to look back at what we’ve accomplished and look forward to adventures still to come. It’s particularly fitting that January is Rotary Awareness Month. At the beginning of this year RI President Gary Huang asked us all to Light Up Rotary by holding Rotary Days – making our communities aware of the good that Rotary does in the neighborhood by inviting non-Rotarians to participate with us in a fun activity.
President Gary reminds us of this commitment in his message in the Rotarian Magazine this month – and invites us all to share our Rotary Days stories with Rotarians around the world. Email details and photos of your event to email@example.com with “Rotary Day” as your subject line. He promises to do his best to feature as many Rotary Days as possible in the coming months. What a great opportunity to show the world the good Rotarians are doing in Hawaii. So send in your stories and your pictures, starting with Hawaii Kai’s July 4th community event that garnered so much goodwill in that neighborhood. Showcase the amazing work that Pahoa Sunset is doing to help the Puna community – with partnerships from the Maui Chefs! And West Hawaii’s incredible efforts for the Hawaii Food Basket - with a parade no less! And how about the Waianae Coast Christmas Parade? Or Lights on Rice Street? Share your stories! Share your pictures! Send them in to the Rotarian magazine but also send them in to us. We’ll put together a special District Newsletter featuring all the Rotary Days events we receive. Now’s the time! Let’s start the New Year off right! Let’s
Light Up Rotary!
