Message from DG Annemarie
I have met the most incredible Rotary Heroes in our district, serving their families and our societies. They lead by example, giving back and volunteering during a very challenging time. They live our lives and bring the service idea closer. Listening to the stories made me realise the journey started some time back, because as parents, if we can instil a sense of gratitude, kindness and generosity in children, we can help them develop empathy, compassion and a spirit of giving. Give your children the gift of giving and it will reap rewards for a lifetime.
 
Everyone has a role to play - Babyact, Earlyact, Interact, Rotaract, Rotarian.
 
Whether it's Babyact to Earlyact, Interact, Rotaract or as Rotarians, enthusiastic as professionals with diverse backgrounds, we exchange ideas, form lifelong friendships, volunteer, participate in random acts of giving, connect to a cause and make a sustainable difference in our communities.
 
Saint Francis of Assisi said it best, "For it is in giving that we receive." Once students have experienced that warm fuzzy feeling they get from helping others, studies show they're more likely to continue volunteering into adulthood. Let's continue to invite, connect and unite people from all continents and cultures who take action to deliver real, long-term solutions to our world's most persistant issues.

CELEBRATING A WILD POLIO-FREE AFRICA
 
 
Africa is Polio Free – Today is a historic moment!  We need to recognise the more than 1 million Rotary members who have donated their time and money to eradicate polio. This was our promise to the children of the world. 
 
We still can’t relax as the focus needs to be on Pakistan and Afghanistan. The end is in sight...

WE ARE PEOPLE OF ACTION
