Welcome to February

...which is both the month for Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution as well as the anniversary month for Rotary International (February 23rd.)


Paul P. Harris (Rotary International Founder) once said, “Fear and Hate Must Go! And they will go when nations have goodwill based on understanding.” For the world to have peace, we must have mutual understanding; we must share mutual respect; we must have compassion for one another, and we must listen to one another with open minds. As Rotarians, we are part of the bigger world so what we do within our homes, immediate network, and local communities has ripple effects on the world. Let’s seek and strive for peace in our homes, networks, and communities each day. Let’s embody the 4-way test to be the basic guiding principles in our thoughts and deeds so that there will be peace around us.


Good news to share - the Satellite Club of Whitnall Park Muskego was formally approved recently by Rotary International, so a hearty congratulations to Kelly Thompson and the rest of the team that made it a reality. Two other Satellite clubs are currently in different stages of formation as well.
