Message From The President
Why Should We Care?
Rotarians have condensed the organization’s core values in Rotary’s four-way test of the things we think, say, or do. Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendship? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Our club states its mission as teaching youth to succeed through literacy, education, and life skills development. Rotary International has chosen for its theme for this year, Rotary Opens Opportunities.
Why? Why does Rotary on a global scale, or our club on a local scale, care? We have all heard others say playing fair is for suckers, or worse yet, for losers. No doubt some helpful person has advised you that God helps those who help themselves, not as a call to action but rather to discourage charity and encourage accumulating wealth beyond your needs.
Rotarians care because Paul Harris was on to something long before research scientists studying human behavior, temperament, and emotions confirmed that wealth and possessions can make our lives more comfortable but will not make us measurably more happy. Happiness and satisfaction in life come from making meaningful steps toward your purpose and living up to your own ideals. We humans are not perfect and need help staying on course, that is where our faith and our Rotary four-way test, club mission, and yearly themes are invaluable in keeping us on the right track. Our club is accomplishing great things in our community and in our world with your help. If you would like to do more, there are many club committees that would love to have you join their efforts.
