“Rotary is not an organization for retrospection. It is rather one whose worth and purpose lie in future activity rather than past performance.” - Paul Harris.  Numerous members attended the four-hour VISIONING workshop for our club that was facilitated by PDG Bob Gebhard. After a group meal, we learned various ways to serve others better through Rotary.

WHY Clubs Need a Vision:  The idea of “Service Above Self” has been providing Rotarians with a reason for belonging since Rotary began. Today it permeates throughout the world as Rotary club after Rotary club meet on an ongoing basis to serve their communities and each other. However, as any Rotarian can tell you, each club is different. They are unique in how they go about their services, how they organize themselves, and how they are perceived by their communities and the Rotary District of which they belong. So how does your club interpret “Service Above Self”? Without a conscious awareness of that unique interpretation, clubs have a tendency to lose focus. To a club that has not defined who they are, what they stand for, and what they intend to do; anything and everything is an opportunity. 

Follow-up activities are planned for refining and reaching the goals and pathways discussed for increasing our club's contributions to the community and enhancing member satisfaction.
