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.
He believes that connection is at the heart of the Rotary experience. “Our service connects us to people who share our values, who want to take action for a better world; it connects us to people we would never otherwise meet, who are more like us than we could have imagined; and it connects us to people who need our help, allowing us to change lives in communities around the world...
Rotary allows us to connect with one another, in deep and meaningful ways, across our differences. It connects us with people we would never otherwise have met, who are more like us than we ever could have known. It connects us with our communities, to professional opportunities, and to the people who need our help.”
President Mark sees a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves and he asks Rotarians to strengthen the many ways that Rotary Connects the World, building the connections that allow talented, thoughtful, and generous people to unite and take meaningful action through Rotary service.
