Heartiest Congratulations & a very warm welcome to a new and expectant RY 22-23. Covid Pandemic had not only impacted our personal lives but our Rotary as well. We have recuperated from it and as it’s always said, ‘Create challenges into opportunities’, very effectively we supported the community in many ways by doing many Global Grant projects. I would like to compliment each one of you, for putting in all your efforts in the hour of crisis and making a huge difference in the lives of people.
I must say that we were very fortunate to host all the events/training sessions physically and had an overwhelming response for the same. I want to thank all the club leaders and their teams for joining in large numbers and supporting us.
RY 22-23 is going to be a Historic year! For the first time in the History of Rotary International, we will be having a Lady as an RI President!
RI President Jennifer Jones will be leading our esteemed Organisation. It is going to be a great year and as a tribute to her leadership & also respect to Women Power, we have to put our best foot forward and work towards increase in Lady Members in our district. RI President Jennifer Jones has given this thought provoking theme “Imagine Rotary” and if we actually start imagining Rotary and the opportunities it gives us to serve the community, so many wonderful ideas, themes can be thought of & manifested too. She has also promoted the wonderful concept of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This describes policies and programs that promote the representation and participation of different groups of individuals, including people of different ages, races and ethnicities, abilities and disabilities, genders, religions, cultures and sexual orientations.
We all have joined Rotary because someone had invited us to be a part of this wonderful organisation. Now, it is the moral responsibility of each one of us, to invite at least one member to our club, motivate and engage them in our activities so that they are assimilated well.
We are DOING GOOD IN THE WORLD through The Rotary Foundation and I am glad that our District has a strong Participation in Rotary Foundation Programs. We have consistently been amongst the Top 10 Contributing Districts of the World and our Participation in Global Grants is extraordinary. New norms for Global Grants has made it further essential that we contribute more and more to TRF so that we can do Bigger, Better, Bolder and Long-term Impact Creating Sustainable Projects through Global Grants. We also need to request & motivate our Non-Rotarian friends to contribute to TRF as this will help us to serve our Community in a better way and also will give them an opportunity to know Rotary & feel blessed by doing their bit for the community at large.
Let’s work together towards the betterment of the society & achieve the PINNACLE of Success for our Clubs and RID 3131. DELIVER HAPPINESS, SPREAD SMILES & ENJOY ROTARY by IMAGINING Rotary & fulfilling OUR dreams FOR the community.
Remember “TOGETHER WE CAN AND TOGETHER WE WILL”.
