 2021-2022 District Governor Ray Anderson

Ray's visit to the Longmont Rotary Club included awarding 6 club members with their newest Paul Harris pin, along with providing an update on District 5450 news, upcoming Rotary events and winning the Fishbowl! (now he can't say he never wins).  Ray has been a member of the Rotary Club of Highlands Ranch since 1997 serving as its President in 2000-01. He has served as Assistant Governor, District Membership Co-Chair, a member of the District Visioning Team, PETS Facilitator, and a graduate of RLI. Ray is a Paul Harris Fellow and member of the Paul Harris Society. 
Governor Ray provided an update on some exciting upcoming Rotary events.  

The Rotary District Conference will be held on April 29th-30th at The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace in Aurora.  Registration details will be emailed to Rotarians closer to the event.

The Rotary International Convention will be held on June 4th-8th in Houston, TX.  Sign up early for lower registration rates.

PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) will be held on March 4th-6th. Registration is now open. 

Details of these above listed events can be found on the district website at  

Ray offered these final words of advice. "When a member leaves a club, we often ask why did they leave?  Instead I urge you to ask your new members, why they joined your club and why they want to be a Rotarian?”

Moment of Inspiration by Dick  Lyons
Words to live by from Marcus Aurelius, the Roman philosopher, emperor and attorney.

•   When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love.

•  We have the potential to live a good life if we we learn to be indifferent to what makes no difference.

•  Death smiles at us all, but all one can do is smile back.

•  Look well within yourself, there is a source of strength which will always spring up if you will just look at it.

•   You have power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.

•  The best revenge is not to be like your enemy.

•   A man's worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions.

•   Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of strength, virtue and reason which today arm you against the present.

President's Message

Hello All,

Thank you for granting me the opportunity to serve as the president of the Rotary club of Longmont for the 2021–2022 Rotary year.

The upcoming year will be one of continuing change as we start the process of returning to the “new normal“ of in-person meetings. The process is going to be a "crawl, walk, run" and I hope everyone will be patient. 
The theme of this rotary year is "Serve to change lives".  It will be wonderful to be able to come up with projects to follow this theme and continue to serve our community locally nationally and internationally.
While we will not be able to have in person RYLA again this year, there will be a one day virtual session. With school being in person, I am looking forward to the Young Rotarian‘s being able to start up again in the fall. Our youth are the future of rotary!
My goal this year is to grow our club by a few members and for everyone to think of younger people in the community who would make great Rotarians.
I look forward to a terrific year.
Yours in Rotary,
Debby Paris
Rotary Club of Longmont
