Welcome to Metro Rotary!

Welcome to our website! My membership in Rotary is truly one of my greatest joys. I am so excited to step into the role of president.  I follow an impressive line of past presidents and pray that, in their shadow, my service will contribute positively to this vibrant and active club.

Rotary International’s theme for 2015-2016 is: “Be a gift to the world.”  I was thrilled to meet our new Rotary International President, K.R. “Ravi” Ravindran, at our District’s conference this spring. Wow! I left that experience energized by the perspective and the possibilities captured in that succinct call to action. Our club has always had a strong record of serving others, and I know this year will be no exception. I challenge each of you to share with the Board ideas you have for putting our ideals and mission into action this year.

We will continue our charitable support (both local and international), our volunteerism efforts and our social gatherings.  In addition, I am excited about new opportunities we will have to work on projects with all of the Columbia Rotary Clubs! So get ready for a year of fun, fellowship and making a difference.

If you are not a member of our club but are looking for an opportunity to be actively engaged and make a difference while building relationships you will cherish, I invite you to visit one of our club meetings over the lunch hour on Wednesdays. I am confident you will find our members engaging, the networking and service opportunities rewarding and the programs interesting.

Rose Hayden, President
