Message From the Club President
It is truly my privilege to be the new President of the Christiana Rotary Club. You have given me this great opportunity to serve our club and I accept this role and the responsibilities that come with it and am humbled to have been chosen.
Over the next 12 months I give you my commitment and dedication to upholding the ideals of Rotary and supporting each individual member of this Club. I will do my best to make this year a memorable and fulfilling one for all of us.
Rotary International President Gary Huang has chosen “Light Up Rotary” as our International theme this year – I believe this theme is fitting for our club.
President Huang states “The Rotary way is to light a candle. I light one, you light one, 1.2 million Rotarians light one. Together, we light up the world.”
I became a member just four short years ago and I can tell you over the past four years together we have proven that a small group of individuals can accomplish big things together. Our club is strong, strong in our commitment to one another, to our community, to our District and to our International leadership. And just as important we have fun! My hope is to continue that tradition in 2014-2015.
There are four areas I plan to focus on this year
- Membership – this is imperative to the livelihood of Rotary.
- Club Administration – this is imperative to the club’s future growth
- Service – increasing volunteer opportunities for our membership
- TOUCH program
So as you see we have work to do that reminds me of a quote by a famous Anthropologist Margaret Mead:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
I look forward to enjoying this journey together and again thank you for your confidence and this opportunity.
Yours in Rotary,
