As we begin the Rotary year with a new logo and theme Rotary Opens Opportunities, I am reminded of the new Rotary International president’s statement that Rotary … “is an invitation to endless opportunities” and that “it creates pathways for members to improve their lives and the lives they help through service projects”. I really like those inspirational words.
Like millions of people around the globe, as well as all members of Rotary International, our club is trying to deal with the extraordinary challenges presented by COVID-19. In recent months we have had to adopt new ways to connect. Our meetings have been confined to computer screens and the majority of our projects are currently on hold. The current restrictions on activity do, however, provide a greater opportunity for members to spend time on planning for the future beyond COVID.
Our club is actively engaged in moving forward and we are excited by our prospects of having some great events in 2020-21, not only mobilising our consistent money-earners but undertaking some new fund-raisers to help finance our projects.
As a member, there is not only the opportunity to help others, but there are also the benefits of friendships with fellow Rotarians and connections with the community beyond as well as the opportunity for personal satisfaction and development through Rotary’s enriching experiences.
To provide a brief insight into our club:
– it is gender-balanced
– it meets every Tuesday at 7pm
– on the first Tuesday of every month we hold committee meetings
– we have guest speakers at most of the other meetings
– some weeks there will be a social function
– under normal circumstances, club members and guests adjourn to the neighbouring RSL Club for a meal after the meeting.
