Rotary “Serving with Imagination and Hope”
Rockland Rotarians, IPDG Doug and Ferolyn Curtis, Jr., participated in decorating the 2023 Rotary float for the Rose Parade in Pasadena.  It took volunteers more than 7,000 hours to prepare and apply flowers and decorations to the float. The Rose Parade theme was “Turning the Corner” an expression of hope and resilience. “Serving with Imagination and Hope” was the Rotary float theme that highlights Rotary’s progression in their mission to educate people globally. Rotary’s float received the Princess Award for the most outstanding floral presentation among entries 35 feet and under in length.

After 2 years of pandemic, we are gradually returning to normal functioning.
 
Normal, but certainly different, in that we have had to adapt to more restrictive, changing, ever-changing environments, and that, for most of us, new ways of doing things have been experimented with more or less success.
 
Unfortunately, these challenges have not been positive for all clubs. Rotary has experienced a significant decline in its global membership, a decline that we are just beginning to compensate for. A reduction in the number of members also means more difficulty in carrying out our actions in the world and locally.
 
It is not surprising, then, that our president, Jennifer Jones, is asking us to increase our efforts to, first of all, retain our members, and obviously welcome new ones and form new clubs.
 
The Rotary year 2022-2023 promises to be an "MEMBERSHIP" year. We will therefore work on it together, because:
 
Together, we see a world where people come together and take action to bring about lasting change in the world, in their communities and in themselves.
 
Thank you for your efforts, good luck in your projects.
 
DG Denis Blouin

For the 12th consecutive year, The Rotary Foundation has received the highest rating — four stars — from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S.

The Foundation earned the recognition for demonstrating both strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. Only one percent of the organizations Charity Navigator evaluates have received 12 consecutive 4-star evaluations.

"Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that The Rotary Foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work", says Michael Thatcher, president and chief executive officer of Charity Navigator. "This exceptional designation sets the Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness."

The rating reflects Charity Navigator's assessment of how the Foundation uses donations, sustains its programs and services, and practices good governance and openness.
