Governor's Message - Happy New Rotary Year
As we start a new year in Rotary together, I am thinking about how this year will be different from past years. The COVID health crisis has caused all of us to think and do things differently in our everyday lives. It is no different for Rotary.
If I predicted last year that almost all of the Clubs in District 6380 would be holding their meeting online, you would have thought I had lost touch with reality. Today, Zoom has become the online format for most of our club meetings.
RI President Knaack Sees Opportunities for Rotary
Rotary International President Holger Knaack is encouraging Rotarians to seize the many opportunities Rotary offers to enrich their lives and the communities they serve.
Rotary isn’t just a club for people to join, but rather “an invitation to endless opportunities,” said Knaack. He emphasized that Rotary creates pathways for members to improve their lives and the lives of those they help through service projects.
