It’s hard to believe that a quarter of our year has already passed. As we enter a new month, please remember that October is Rotary Vocational Service Month.
This month focuses on:
- Adherence to and promotion of the highest ethical standards in all occupations, including fair treatment of employers, employees, associates, competitors, and the public.
- The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, not just those that are pursued by Rotarians.
- The contribution of your vocational talents to solving the problems of society and meeting the needs of the community.
During this month, I encourage all Metro Rotarians to focus on this important avenue of Rotary service. Think about how what you do, and what we do as a group, helps others within our community. We have a number of tremendously talented individuals within our membership, and we need to constantly be thinking about how we can best use our time and talents.
Have a great month!
