Dave Anderson, District 5520 Governor for Rotary clubs in New Mexico and Far West Texas, spoke to the Rotary Club of Carlsbad on Nov. 30, delivering a message based on the worldwide organization’s 2016-17 theme of “Rotary Serving Humanity.”
“This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Rotary Foundation,” Anderson told members. “What began with a donation of $26.50 has become a $3 billion effort today by Rotarians here in our communities and around the world in support of humanitarian efforts.”
Anderson expressed his appreciation for the service that the Rotary Club of Carlsbad’s members perform within the community and their support of Rotary’s global programs.
Carlsbad Rotary Club President Juan Dorado echoed Anderson’s comments about the great efforts made by Rotarians and expressed his appreciation to Anderson for his visit and service.
Provide support and resources for every member to understand, achieve, sustain, and share “Service Above Self."
