PRESIDENT’S VISION FOR 2015-2016
I first say a warm hello and welcome to everyone. I also thank Mike O’Brien for an excellent year as our President in 2014-2015. I am so honored and delighted to be the 2015 -2016 President. I am looking forward to the great things we will accomplish together this year.
They say it’s the people in an organization that make it great, and I agree. We are a tremendous group of leaders and it is always a pleasure to spend such quality time with such great people. I can also say that we work hard and get great things accomplished in our local community as well as internationally. We really do change lives!
This is going to be a great year. I have so enjoyed getting to know you all and will continue to as we grow and serve our community. One major goal this year, among others, is to have more outside social activities to bring us together, connect with our local community, and continue to build great and lasting friendships.
As always we will accomplish a lot together this year through our commitment to serving - making a difference in the lives of others – and the fundraising efforts needed to make it possible. We are committed to serving youth, seniors, supporting great causes like cancer research with Relay for Life and international projects from polio vaccinations to assisting families in tragedies through ShelterBox, and much more.
You are all such accomplished and talented people. This year I will strive to empower each of you to use your gifts and talents on committees of your choice to continue the great work of our club locally and internationally.
This year’s Rotary International President, K.R. “Ravi” Ravindran, in his presidential message explains: “We have only one chance at our lives. We will have only one chance at this new Rotary year. This is our time. Let us grasp it. Let us Be a Gift to the World.”
So let’s make this a great year!
