February is World Understanding Month!
We enter the shortest month of the year with the largest snowfall (hopefully) that we will get in a while! While it’s very easy just to focus on ourselves, we have to remember that there is a much bigger world out there.
As Metro Rotarians, I encourage you to think back during this month about all the things we do, and have done, that has an impact worldwide. Our continued support of the Youth Exchange Program and the Group Study Exchange Program are both excellent examples of how we reach out globally. I am confident that we have learned as much from the individuals we have sponsored as they have learned from us. Another good example is the number of water projects that we have assisted with financially. A special thank you to Tom O’Connor for his tireless efforts in securing the paperwork and grant applications that have resulted in cleaner water to many people overseas.
This year is flying by, and I can’t believe how much we have done! Thanks for all you do to make Metro Rotary such a success!
