January is Rotary Vocation Services Month
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all Rotarians!
I hope that 2023 opens new doors for us all and that we are able to help our communities through Rotary more than we have ever done before.
 
January is Vocational Services month.  This is the root of what Rotary is about.  Paul Harris wrote “Each Rotarian is a connecting link between the idealism of Rotary and their trade or profession.”
 
This is so true and I have seen this in action as I have travelled our District and seen Rotarians of all trades, businesses and professions giving of their time, experience and energy.  Serving their communities and encouraging and fostering the ideal that is Rotary.  Also applying those vocations to provide service to personal, business and community life and advancing international understanding of all that is Rotary.
 
You may think that your individual vocation is nothing special but combine that with the vocations of many and the ideals of Rotary and we have a fantastic recipe for success.
As your District Governor for 2022-23 I thank you all for using your vocational talents in the betterment of Rotary principles and service above self.
 
Regards,
