Frank Romano, District 7430 Governor 2013-2014
Excerpted From “Frank Talk”, Franks’s Forum, District 7430 Newsletter July 2013
As in any new year, it is an organizational and personal opportunity to start fresh, full of good intentions, focused on what can be. The key to success is to maintain that focus throughout the year. Spirit needs to be refreshed periodically, and the best way to do that is to set monthly goals that you can use to recognize the Club’s accomplishments as the year goes by.
Acknowledging the induction of a new member, the successful fundraiser, the total contributions of the Club members to the Rotary Foundation, Polio Eradication, ShelterBox, Rotaplast or the local Club’s service project, reminds Rotarians of their purpose and role in the community. Participating in the 4Way Speech Contest, Youth Exchange, Camp Neidig, Interact and Rotaract Clubs, as well as the youth awards your Club provides to local students or the support your Club provides to youth organizations in your community all feed the spirit of Rotary.
RI President Ron Burton reminds us in his 2013-14 Theme: when each Rotarian engages Rotary every day, it impacts the lives of others as well as his/her own. Engaging Rotary allows us to Communicate Rotary which opens the portals of awareness and understanding within our communities and they will learn who we are and what we do. The more we do, the more others will know us and, hopefully, want to be part of us.
So may all of you enter this new Rotary year with the spirit of Rotary and remember, we do what we do ……..Because we Can ……and We Care.
