Be the Inspiration

Sunday, July 1, 2018

In January of each year, the 530 + incoming District Governors in the Rotary world come together at the International Assembly in San Diego. The first evening, the Rotary International President Elect introduces the theme for the upcoming year. Through the ‘magic’ of several hundred smart phones held by the attendees, within minutes, the theme has been transmitted to the farthest corners of the Rotary world.

Rotary International President Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018 – 2019 Rotary is “Be the inspiration”. I suspect that, if asked, every one of the Rotarians in District 5160 (as well as around the world) would come up with their own version of what that expression means to them, and how they would go about doing what President Barry has asked us to do.

For me, I consider it an honor and a privilege to be given the opportunity to serve as District 5160 Governor for the 2018 – 19 Rotary year. All of you are, and have been, an inspiration to me. The goal I have set for myself this year is to personally thank each of you for your inspiration, and also to challenge you to spread that inspiration to your communities, just as President Barry challenged me and my fellow DGE’s.

Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves.

Look for more to come in the weeks and months ahead about the many different ways Rotarians are being an inspiration.
