"Every day, in our communities and our neighbours, people face tough challenges — conflict, disease, and lack of clean water, health care, education, and economic opportunity. Rotarians are people of action, driven by a desire to create opportunities, strengthen communities, and find solutions to the tough challenges that affect people around the world.  I look forward to leading D9400 with the leadership, committees, Rotarians and Rotary Anns, to engage and inspire members, and promote Rotary in all the communities."
