Message from our President

“Serve to Change Lives”
I wish to start this bulletin report with a couple of quotes, many of you have seen these before and I have used the modern rotary definition in previous reports.

Adaptability, flexibility, stable platform – service as the major component.
Doing things, the same way over and over and expecting that will yield a different result.
During my president elect training some 12 months plus ago we held a session on what a vibrant club looks like. The key points from that session are as follows, each point as important as the other:
  1. Communication, communication, communication – cannot be stated enough.
  2. for each other – value everyone’s contribution
  3. Fun, friendly – fellowship –
  4. Reduction of cliques – No “my seat” attitude
  5. Club leaders – who encourage opportunities for service
  6. Community Service Projects – active in the community -“hands on projects”
  7. Cluster meetings – combined with keynote speakers.
Within this vibrant club strategy, I would like to offer another acronym for consideration to sit alongside the Rotary “four-way test”.
“ T    H  I  N  K “
T = is it True
H = is it helpful
I  = is it inspiring
N = is it necessary
K  = is it kind.
Thnaks everyone, and warm regards
President Helen Nodrum

European Rotaract clubs organize to help Ukrainian refugees
From th weebsite here
 By Ryan Hyland
Within hours of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in late February 2022, Iryna Bushmina fled her home in Kyiv. Along with her sister and her three-month-old nephew, she journeyed to Vienna, Austria, staying with Rotary members along the way. Their generosity inspired Bushmina, a member of the Rotaract Club of Kyiv-City and the district Rotaract representative for Ukraine, to organize a larger-scale relief effort — and now, an online platform she created has helped Rotaract and Rotary members find shelter for thousands of Ukrainian refugees.
Rotary Statement on the War against Ukraine

Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation stand with the United Nations General Assembly in expressing grave concern at “the ongoing human rights and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, in particular at the reports of violations and abuses of human rights and violations of international humanitarian law by the Russian Federation.”
