President's Message

Dear Rotarians,

I am honoured to be asked to serve a second term as President of our Club.

This second term starts off with the world seeing crises of unprecedented nature and effects:
the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine, inflation and escalating food costs. It feels
overwhelming and leaves many of us wondering how to cope and carry on.

Let us focus on the possibilities, as Jennifer Jones makes her historical moment by being the first female president of RI since its inception on February 23, 1905. Her presidential theme, “Imagine Rotary,” urges people to dream big and harness their connections and the power of Rotary to turn those dreams into reality.

Let us adapt and retool in preparation for the difficulties, and opportunities, down the road, as we continue to provide comfort and care for our members and to our community.

Let us embrace changes to our club models and ensure that we engage our members. With gratitude, regard, and appreciation, I thank you for being my inspiration, and for your contributions in support of our Club and community.

“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.” Disney
