2020-21 President’s Message
 
 
Rotary Opens Opportunities
 
We are part of a legacy here in Chilliwack and beyond. A legacy of service that makes a profound difference in people’s lives.
 
Our club’s generous, innovative, and determined Rotarians not only endured depression, war, disease, hunger, and vast changes in our community and world, they came to terms with the reality before them and served the common good. This is our cherished legacy to stand before.
 
It is our turn to build on this legacy.  These times present another call; we are needed. We are needed to feed schoolchildren, be present to our seniors in care, provide support and take care of each other and of others. 
 
Whatever the ‘new normal’, we will open opportunities of service to make a difference. 
 
We will take strength from our past as we engage our present and ask again who we are and what can we do to meet and shape our future.   We remain a club of wisdom and service that will meet challenges with compassion. 
 
It is a privilege to be our club’s president this year.  Amidst all the vulnerabilities, I pledge to be a leader of hope, to accept opportunities, to make a difference in this reality, and to accompany each member in this year of service. You have my commitment that I embrace this leadership opportunity with determination and confident hope.
