District Governor’s Message-June 2017

 
JUNE IS ROTARY FELLOWSHIP MONTH
OR ALTERNATIVELY FAMILY MONTH
Officially June is Rotary Fellowship Month.  Rotary Fellowships are independent, social groups that share a common passion.  Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world.  Samples of fellowships are: 4 x 4 Vehicles, Beer, Caravanning, Computer Users, Cooking, Cruising, Golf, Jazz, Photographers, Shooting Sports, and Wine to mention a few.  For more information visit https://www.rotary.org/en/our-programs/more-fellowships .
I tend to think of June as Family Month.  Why?  Graduations, June Brides and Vacations are a few of the reasons.  What is family?
  • Your biological family including parents, children and grandchildren.
  • Your spouse’s or partner’s biological family.
  • Your Rotary family
  • Extended families to all the above.
 
During June, and throughout the coming year, make a special effort to involve all your families in the various aspects of Rotary.
  • Parties, outings and other fun events are a good way to start.  By joining with you at these Rotary activities they will learn about the social aspect of Rotary.
  • Work projects demonstrate your dedication to the themes “Rotary Serves Humanity” and “Rotary: Making a Difference.” This includes projects to meet Ian H.S. Riseley’s goal to plant 1.2 million new trees worldwide between July 1 and Earth Day, April 22, 2018.  Many of our projects have a wide variety of tasks suitable for young and old, skilled and unskilled that can have a lasting impact on our communities and on the participants.
Plan now, have fun and do good things in our communities.
