“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” Howard Zinn. I am proud to be a Rotarian! I am most honoured and humbled to be elected President of the Rotary Club of Sports City 2021 22.
Our club has been built on a strong leadership foundation, and I am fortunate to have be members who are fully committed to the Rotary ideal of Service Above Self, and shall go to continue to go the extra mile in building the club, and carrying out the many worthwhile projects that we will undertake for the benefit of our community. With everyone in Sports City pitching in, I am certain that we will make this rotary year yet another memorable one.
Our Rotary International President, Shekhar Mehta selected the theme "Serve to Change lives" for the 2021 -22 Rotary year. As DG Pankaj Shah eloquently said, "Keep it simple” so shall we carry out our acts towards service in a meaningful way.
Our mission that we will continue too make our Club where our Members are proud to be associated with and has opportunity to serve the society at large shall always be kept in mind. I am confident that the very competent Board of Directors will achieve great things. The club has done extremely well under the previous Presidents and seniors who have strived to take the club to such heights that we are a highly recognized club in the District and in Rotary India.
Our plan for the club will be 7 fold:
Our RI President has set a goal of empowering girls, so young women can have improved opportunities worldwide. Being a lady president, I would like to have many of my activities revolving girls and women empowerment. Projects for girl education, girl social status, empowering the girl and women in the society to a large extent shall be taken up through service project both medical and non-medical. Our plans for the year include bigger & better service projects
Its only the foundation that return our donation not doubling it but multiplying it. Fellow Rotarians, let us be energised. Let us not underestimate the value of our contributions globally and give to the Rotary foundation.
Members are the lifeline. As rightly said by RI president Shekhar da, we will grow through “Each One, Bring One.” Being aligned with the district plans, keeping in view our strategic planning and the goals set by the membership team I am sure we shall indeed be giving the desired results.
We will continue to harnessing the power of social media including our website, Facebook, twitter as well as add other social media as recommended by Rotary International.
Rotary has a close link to fellowship, parties, fun and picnics. So I shall miss no chance to mix business with fun!! We have a calendar filled with business meetings, fun meetings, day trips, overnight trips and many events which will keep the members engaged in the club activities. Our focus this year will be on assimilation and involving maximum members and spouses in the club activities
Our service directors have made an elaborate list of projects keeping in view the focus areas of rotary. With support and service hours from each members Anns and I am sure we shall be able to live to the motto of Service above self. We would like to work in the areas of economic and community development as well as in peace and conflict resolution. Environment, promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education and growing local economies.
Let us get into action once again to make a successful and eventful Rotary Year 2021-2022Though each president has given his or her best to our club to accomplish the goals set, I as a leader shall carry the 26 years legacy of our club. Let’s aim high!
