Fellow Rotarians

As we embrace the new Rotary year, I want us to face forward and realize the talents in each of us.  I ask that you try something new, take on a new responsibility, and get to know your fellow Rotarians just a little bit better.  Rotary takes ordinary men and women like us and gives us extraordinary opportunities.”  We all know this to be true.
The BEST resource we have is our members and there is no doubt that our clubs are chock full of very talented people.  With that in mind, as you know our joint theme for this year is “Unite to Ignite”.
Growth is never by mere chance; it is by forces working together.  We rise by lifting each other up.
I too ask that we do the same, and continue to work as a team and stay connected as one BVI Rotary family.   
Rotary International President Barry Rassin’s Vision is:
“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
So, as we look ahead to the endless possibilities of our next Rotary year, let us take every opportunity to continue to work together to do good both in our community and around the world and please let us continue to give to Rotary Foundation.
 Let’s show the BVI that we are ONE Rotary and that we can Unite to Ignite.
