January is Rotary Awareness Month!

Happy New Year!  As we enter the second half of this Rotary year, I know everyone is still excited from all the wonders that the annual holiday season brings.  It’s a time for reflection of the year past, but also a time to look forward at what is to come.

Happy New Year

As we begin 2015, I encourage you to reflect on Rotary.  Hopefully, you are aware of what a fantastic organization you are a part of and what Rotary means locally and internationally.  As a refresher, I offer the following:  in February, Rotary will celebrate its 110th birthday; there are over 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide; there are over 34,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries; Rotary has helped all but eradicate polio; the Group Study Exchange program has helped more than 70,000 young professionals from 106 countries explore their career fields; and the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholars program has helped more than 41,000 students from 130 countries study abroad.  Rotarians make a difference!

Thanks again for the role each of you play to make Metro Rotary such a wonderful organization.  I look forward to the next six months!
