Happy New Year!
Welcome to the Second Half of this Rotary Year.  The question for all of us:
What More Can I Do?
The Second Object of Rotary states:  High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society.  Active, engaged Rotarians view vocational service as a way of life.  Vocational service is what sets Rotary apart from other service organizations.  RI President Barry Rassin says the diversity of vocations gives Rotary a special strength.  Paul Harris said, “Each Rotarian is the connecting link between the idealism of Rotary and his trade or profession.” What can each of us do to share our skills and talents to ‘Be the Inspiration’ and create lasting change locally and globally:
How about mentoring a student or a young professional in a facet of your profession; starting a group focused on a common goal or vision; or encouraging others in their professional development.  Perhaps you can be of help for these club requests:Ann Arbor North Rotary is looking for a Staff member at Washtenaw Community College to be an advisor for a new Rotaract Club.
