New Rotary Year

The start of July heralds a new Rotary year and Rotary International President Mark Daniel Maloney’s theme for 2019-20 is Rotary Connects the World.

It is a great honour for me to be taking on the role of President for the Rotary year 2019/20.

Being a Club based in Belfast city centre enables us to connect with the local Community, through service with YouthAction, Mitchell House and the Tree of Remembrance. Worldwide we support the fight to ‘End Polio Now’ and help some of the world’s poorest people work their own way out of poverty with dignity by investment in small business via the Lendwithcare scheme in many countries including Ecuador, Malawi and Cambodia.

We appreciate the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join. Any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.

This year’s Rotary theme is Rotary connects the World
and we hope that you will help us to build those connections.
