Our DG Jim visited our Club on July 18 at the Monte Carlo Inn, here is his message:
...... Earlier this year incoming RI President John Germ unveiled the new 2016-17 theme “Rotary Serving Humanity” quoting Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, saying “serving humanity is the most worthwhile thing a person can do” and that “being a part of Rotary is a great opportunity to make that happen”. This theme represents what Rotary is all about. I look forward to working with you in your mission of serving humanity this coming year, whether it be locally or internationally or continuing to work to eradicate polio. As RI President John said “let’s take this opportunity to change the world for the better, through Rotary’s service to humanity”. As our District is showing a positive growth trend over the last two years, one of my goals for 2016-17 is to continue this increase in membership, ending the year up net 50 members. I believe this is doable and am asking that YOU make the “ASK” to someone you know who will make a good Rotarian. As we will be celebrating The Rotary Foundation Centennial this year, another goal for 2016-17 is to raise $1,000,000. During the past century, Rotarians have been changing lives and improving communities throughout the world and this is something worth celebrating. More to come! It is an honour and privilege for me to be your District Governor for 2016-17. I am looking forward to visiting your club to share with you my goals for our District this year, and to learn of your passions in serving humanity in your community and internationally. We have a great District Team and they, being the District Executive, District Committee Chairs, and Assistant District Governors are here to support you throughout the year and to ensure you and your club are having fun while making your club attractive and relevant. I encourage you to network with them, get to know them and use them to further the good work you are doing. This will be an exciting year as we move to “Rev Up Rotary”, the theme for this year’s District Conference. Along with the District Team, I am here for you, to represent you and promote Rotary within your community. Working together with Rotary Serving Humanity.
