By now I'm sure you know our theme this year is “Light Up Rotary”. Last month, I sent each of you an acronym that I created of the word “LIGHT” to encourage us to consider what it means to “Light Up Rotary”. The “I” stands for “Invite other exceptional people to be a part of this incredible club”. This month’s Rotary focus is on membership. You are encouraged to invite a friend to our Rotary Club luncheon. Also, please consider someone very special to invite to be a part of our excellent club.
Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.
Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is a not for profit corporation that promotes world understanding through international humanitarian service programs and educational and cultural exchanges.
