Service Above Self

As Rotary International celebrates its 100-year anniversary, I have had the privilege of serving Rotary for the last 17 years.  I have served as our local club's president and I live the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self." But, I am not alone.  It is amazing as to the commitment of Rotarians to the practice of service above self in both their professional and personal lives.   I have come to admire the majority of these club members who are so engaged in every aspect of our community, whether it is through Rotary or not.  They serve without hesitation and make our community a better place to live and work.  Happy Anniversary, fellow Rotarians, and thanks for a job very well done!

  1. Thanks for spreading the word about the good work of Rotary. The enormous efforts done worldwide to eradicate polio is something that all Rotarians can be proud of. Our club in New England hosts an annual Wellness Festival event, on a Saturday in late September. We offer free health screenings and a tons of information to help community members learn about a healthy lifestyle. It's an event that is especially well-received -- and fun -- to our community, all things that are important to support the work of local hospitals, too!
