I wish you all a Happy Rotary year 2020-2021! Together we can!!
Today I am privileged to proudly take the leadership of our club for one year. Rotary Club Grand Baie has been serving its community since 1981. All previous presidents have been doing a great job. I will continue on the same path to the best of my abilities and of course while bringing my own signature.
The Covid-19 pandemic has showed us that we need to adapt constantly to our environment. Our convention and district conference were held virtually connecting Rotarians from around the world. At club levels, meetings were also conducted via online platforms. We have created alternative means of communication and new meeting formats which have proved to be successful. This will encourage members to increase their attendance and at the same time strengthen their engagement as Rotarians.
We should also keep in mind that the foundation upon which Rotary is built is friendship. Through our active participation in meetings, projects and fellowships, we continue to connect better while our friendship keeps blossoming.
Rotarians throughout the world might have a different reason for joining the Rotary family. But what forges the bond between all members is our core values (leadership, integrity, diversity, fellowship & service). These shared values define our culture and actions.
Members come from diverse backgrounds with different fields of competencies. This is what makes us so special as everyone brings something unique to the club. The power of every Rotary Club lies in each and every member.
We also have a board of Motivated Rotarians as well as experienced Past Presidents who are eager to continue serving their community. Together with a team of enthusiastic members, I am sure that we are going to have an exciting and awesome Rotary year 2020-2021!
“Together we can!”
Yours in Rotary,
Rotary Club Grand Baie
