Doing the work of Rotary begins in Committees
Furthering the work of Rotary in our community, our region or internationally happens in our committees. There is an enormous opportunity as a volunteer in Rotary Club of Palm Springs to become involved and active. It’s personally rewarding and great fun! I have found being the Program Chair this year and the Fundraising Chair last year to be very rewarding.
We have many levels of time commitments as well as different kinds of service to the club and community. Committee work is where you really get to know fellow Rotarians and share the fellowship that ties us all together.
Being part of a committee is the best way to get to know members, enjoy personal rewards and contribute to the success of Rotary.
Last Saturday (Oct-5-13) I had the chance to attend the District 5330
President's Elect Retreat at Thousand Pines in Crestline, CA.
It was fun, informative and useful.
After the Retreat I was thinking about being a Rotarian. I have been
a member of three Rotary Clubs and a member for about seven years.
How has Rotary changed my life?
"Being a Rotarian has been a great experience to have friends with
ethical values; to become more involved in helping others; and giving
me a mechanism to know that I am making a difference."
Leadership is ultimately about helping others to be their best.
That means putting others above self. And that is the basic
foundation of Rotary. As Paul Harris understood over 100 years ago
when he invited some friends to dinner, when you get a lot of people
working together and believing in service, anything is possible.
