Kim and I want all Rotarians in District 5730 to know that we are honored and humbled to lead this District for the 2018-2019 Rotary year.  As a team, our message to you is two-fold.
 
I want to bring membership training and public image to the forefront.  Because I believe that when a community learns what Rotary does locally and globally, those citizens will want to be a part of the Rotary family bringing about change and a better life to those served.
 
Kim was touched in Atlanta last year at the International Assembly by the topic of human trafficking. She wants to increase awareness that this problem is "in our own backyard" and promote action to end this human tragedy. 
 
Our club visits begin on July 24 and we look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
 
Be the Inspiration!!

In an effort to increase membership and highlight Rotary’s inspiring work, RI President Barry Rassin is urging clubs and districts to organize fun, informal community events called Rotary Days.
 
"Rotary Days events will offer you the chance to have an impact in your community, build long-term partnerships, increase interest in membership, and improve Rotary’s image," Rassin said.
 
Any club, big or small, can host a Rotary Day. Neighboring clubs can pool their resources and co-host an event, and entire districts can come together for a large-scale Rotary Day.
 

One year ago, your Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new vision statement, reflecting our aspirations for our organization and its future. It reads, “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

RI President-elect Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-19, Be the Inspiration, asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other. “I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”

Rotary Showcase Impact Tracker

Rotary Showcase is an online application that allows Rotarians and Rotaractors to share stories of their clubs’ successful projects with people around the world. In addition, project stories are a source for features in Rotary International blogs and newsletters.

The Showcase’s Impact Tracker shows the impact of each Rotary project in terms of volunteers and volunteer hours, cash contributions, and in-kind donations. It also shows the collective impact of all reported projects.

Success stories posted on Showcase can serve as an inspiration and a model for other Rotary and Rotaractor clubs. Check out this "Impact Tracker" by clicking here.

What Paul Harris Said

Image

"Rotary has a long way to go. One who thinks of the movement as a finished product is indeed short sighted; there is nothing in the past to justify such a view; those who have been long identified with it think of it as having made a beginning only; the grandeur of Rotary must be in the days to come".
