DG Newsletter February 2021
 
 
One year ago, RI President Holger Knaack unveiled this year’s Rotary theme: Rotary Opens Opportunities.  As leaders in virtually every community on earth, we bring a unique combination of local knowledge and access to global networks of expertise and resources.  This year more than ever, you have shown me that you are resourceful, resilient, have indestructible usefulness, and find joy in serving. 
 
Thank you for participating in the Mid-Year Assembly. You shared your stories, and we celebrated together as you have stepped up!
 
Despite the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic, you live your life investing into the lives of so many families & communities around the world.  You continue to bring comfort. Thank you. 
We must prescribe to personal hygiene protocols, social distancing, and other guidelines outlined by the World Health Organisation.  We should also encourage others to do the same.  Special attention must be paid to our employees’ life situation – the value of social responsibility has dramatically increased – and be ready to provide support.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Read More....
