Be A Gift To the World
The Object of Rotary
- the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
- high ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to service society;
- The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
- the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
Happy New Year!
This year’s theme is “Be a Gift to the World.” Gifts come in all shapes and sizes. Some are elegantly wrapped while others are the handiwork of a child – so proud of the beautiful job they did. Gifts come from the heart. We give them to celebrate occasions or because someone can use a surprise. This year please consider your gifts to the world. Wouldn’t it be a terrific gift if this is the year of no new cases of Polio? Or that more people have clean water, know how to read, have healthier babies or have better medical and vision care? These things and many more are possible through the Rotary Foundation. I would like to see every member of every club do a minimum of $100 this year. It is $2 a week and what a gift it is!
New Year -- Now is the time to get your Youth Protection paperwork in order
Additionally, in order to have a background record check done -- new Rotarians/individuals on your list for Youth work (Club Youth Service Committee) will need a NEW Volunteer Affidavit to be completed. Rotarians who have submitted a Volunteer Affidavit within the last 3 years are good with their existing affidavit. You can find the Volunteer Affidavit form located on the D6270 website -- under site pages.
Clubs with Rotary Youth Exchange Inbound students are held to a higher level of compliance because of the regulations.
Have questions or need to check status? Reach out to Bob Hosch at email@example.com or John Scherer firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
