President's Message
First, I would like to thank both the Incoming and Outgoing Directors and Officers of our club for all of their support and hard work during the preparation for the 2018/2019 coming Rotary year. I look forward to our upcoming year with present and new members of our Board.
We have so many members who go above and beyond during the year, with many doing tasks behind the scenes and not expecting recognition, but simply living our motto "Service Above Self". We have an awesome group of people in this club, so let's follow this year's Rotary theme "Be The Inspiration".
I will, I can and I must be an Inspiration. Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities and within ourselves. We are people of action.
I have set reasonable and attainable goals for both Foundation and Membership growth for this coming Rotary year. I am confident that, working together, we can achieve these goals.
Our Rotary International President, Mr Barry Rassin is very committed to growing out network of Rotoract Clubs. We currently hold a Charter and I would love to have involvement from club members to attempt a rekindling of this very valuable resource.
We join Rotary for many reasons, but fellowship and fun are always key points of our involvement. Let's bring fun to our meetings, while working hard together to build and support our community in the many ways we can. We also need to keep the push on to rid the world of Polio by 2020, and be an inspiration to each other.
Warm Regards
Russel Ideson
President 2018-2019
