Dear Rotarians:
 
July 1st marks the beginning of our Rotary year: another year of service, fellowship and working toward a more peaceful world.  As Rotarians we dream big dreams, and when we work together good things happen.  My theme “Dare to Dream” challenges each of us to embrace our dreams for a better tomorrow and take action; who knows where the next dream may lead?  Our founder Paul Harris had a vision to bring business colleagues together for the purpose of networking and that dream is now 1.2 million Rotarians around the world working for humanity.  Thirty years ago, our dream of eradicating polio from the globe was just that, a dream, and today it is close to fruition. 
 
Our Rotary International President Barry Rassin has challenged us to “Be the Inspiration”: to take action and serve as efficiently and as effectively as we can to build a better world.  At the recent Toronto Convention he challenged us to reach within ourselves and to work together, with the knowledge and belief, we can do just that. 
 
We have an exciting year ahead of us.  We have an amazing district which begins with each of our Rotarians in each of our clubs.  It is impossible to think of our communities, at home and around the world, without the work of the local clubs: your clubs – thank you!
 
I invite you to join us at the District Conference at the beautiful Deerhurst Resort, October 19th to 21st, where we will enjoy inspirational speakers, connect with old friends from across our district, make new friends, celebrate who we are as Rotarians and plant the seeds as we “Dare to Dream”.  Be sure to book now to avoid disappointment as it is filling fast!
 
I am honoured to have the opportunity to work with you this year and am looking forward to getting know you and the work of your clubs.  Thank you for your service to Rotary!
 
Yours in Rotary,
 
 
Susan Davidson
