President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.
Germ unveiled the 2016-2017 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity,
to incoming district governors on January 18 at the International Assembly in San
Diego, which was attended by District 5520 Governor-Elect David Anderson.
“I believe everyone recognizes the opportunity to serve Rotary for what it truly
is: not a small opportunity, but a great one; an opportunity of a lifetime to change
the world for the better, forever through Rotary’s service to humanity,” said Germ,
who is from Chattanooga, Tenn., and who will take over a RI president on July 1.
Rotary members around the globe are serving humanity by providing clean water to underdeveloped communities,
promoting peace in conflict areas, and strengthening communities through basic education and literacy. But
none more important than our work to eradicate polio worldwide, he said. After a historic year in which transmission
of the wild poliovirus was stopped in Nigeria and all of Africa, Germ said we are closer than ever to ending polio.
“We are at a crossroads in Rotary,” he added. “We are looking ahead at a year that may one day be known as
the greatest year in Rotary’s history: the year that sees the world’s last case of polio.
