July President's Message

July 2019

Aloha Fellow Rotarians,
Well I guess now is the time to write my first President's message for the monthly newsletter.  Thank you all for your support at the Instillation Dinner. Sam Johnson really delivers when he plans a function for us. We are very lucky to have him as committee chair person for our Club Service.  It meant the world to me to share the evening with family and friends.
 
As we start our new Rotary year, I would like to outline a few things that I would like us to focus on. As you know helping to partner with the schools in our district is very dear to my heart. One of our clubs major focus is Literacy. This ties in very well with up and coming projects with the schools. We already have our Keiki Vision Screenings in place and this just makes it easier with our foot in the door.  I think we can make a huge impact joining forces with administrators, teachers and students to help them achieve their goals.  Many of the schools lack in Physical Education and the Arts. Helping these schools realize their dreams with musical instruments, art supplies and gym equipment would strengthen our bond with our area schools. I have been reaching out to some of the schools liaisons to start planning for our year.  We are in the beginning stages of this, so I will keep all of you in the loop with ideas and I hope you will be on board to help. 
Let's all focus on our core mantra "Service Above Self". With this in mind, we will attract new members while involved with projects and sharing ideas. Lets keep an open mind and try new things! We have such a great core of members, it will be easy to grow.
 I feel fortunate to be involved with such a fantastic Rotary club and fantastic people!  Each and every one of you have so much talent and gifts to share.
 
See you at the next meeting!
