DISTRICT GOVERNOR MESSAGE

I was recently reminded of the unexpected ways we can leave a mark or not leave a mark. At a gathering not long ago, I encountered someone who seemed puzzled by my presence.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

As Rotary leaders, the commitment to 'Service Above Self' is paramount. This means making and keeping promises regardless of someone's position or power. Schwarzenegger's story serves as a cautionary tale that aligns with Rotary values, reminding leaders everywhere that their true worth is measured not by the number of rooms reserved in their honor but by the number of lives they touch and transform.
In this way, the song "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" becomes not just a reflection of a band's journey but also a metaphor for Rotary's continuous cycle of renewal, growth, and resilience.

In over 20 years as a Rotarian I have often asked the question, “Why Isn’t Every Rotary Club able to qualify for an Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) Banner?” At first glance it seems an easy goal.
