DISTRICT GOVERNOR MESSAGE

One of the hot-button topics in society in general and Rotary clubs, in particular, is the concept of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).  Rotary International has adopted DEI as a core value. The only problem is that almost everyone has a different idea of what DEI means. Diversity has always been a core value of Rotary.  It is in our DNA.  For years we expressed that through our classification system.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Patience is a complex set of virtues, including self-control, humility, generosity, tolerance, mercy, and it is an essential aspect of other areas like hope, faith, and love. Patience is a paradigm of the ancient notion of the unity of the virtues. As we all know, the opposite of patience is impatience. It is defined as "irritability or restlessness." Simply said, impatience can be viewed as a rejection of the present moment because we feel it should be replaced by something else. It simply is a rejection of the current reality.

HOW CAN WE BE INCLUSIVE AS A ROTARY CLUB?

One of the hot-button topics in society in general and Rotary clubs, in particular, is the concept of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).  Rotary International has adopted DEI as a core value.

WELCOME TO A NEW ROTARY YEAR

This is always an exciting time.  Club presidents and boards are stepping into their new roles.  Everyone is looking forward to a great year.  We have additional excitement this year as we enter the first time in Rotary International’s 117-year history when we are led by a woman.  Female leadership is nothing new in Rotary.  Clubs, this district and most other aspects of Rotary have all had numerous presidents and chairs who are female.
