At this special time of year, I wanted to offer the following
We are thankful for the opportunity of meeting together as
Rotarians: to enjoy our fellowship and reaffirm our commitment
to honesty and high ethics in all we do.
We are thankful for the privilege of being Rotarians to exemplify
Rotary ideal: to provide service to others, promote integrity,
and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace.
We ask for Your continued blessings for us to make
even greater contributions in serving our community, and
be more prepared to implement Rotary's strategic priorities and
goals for the years to come.
The 2014-2015 Board of Directors for the Rotary Club of Palm Springs will be meeting for the first time following the ‘Holiday Lunch’ next week. One of the tasks for this meeting will be to elect the President Nominee for 2015-2016. On July 1 the new Rotary year will begin. In order to ensure that the our Club has an effective year for 2014-2015, I sent a message to all Club members asking them ‘Are You Interersted?’
We are very fortunate in the Rotary Club of Palm Springs because we have some very active Rotarians that set an outstanding example for our Club’s membership.
Are you interested in becoming more active in your Rotary Club?
An active Rotarian is someone who cares about their community. Being an active Rotarian involves supporting your local community (or beyond). This can be done in a number of ways.
Being an active Rotarian is what you make of it! All you need is a desire to see your community change or improve and lots of enthusiasm.
I asked a number of people what they thought an active Rotarian was … here are some of the answers they gave:
‘Someone who gets involved’
‘Someone who gives back to their community’
‘An active Rotarian cares for others in their community, shows they can be involved and committed’
‘Active Rotarians are people who believe we all count, and individually and together, we can make a difference’
‘One who cares about their community and doesn’t just sit and wait – they do things’
