President's Message DECEMBER 2013
December 1, 2013
Dear eClub Rotarians,
Rotary years must be as fast as light years. We are half way through this Rotary
year. This year, we have accomplished
so much through you, our members.
is a small sample of what you have done.
Supported a great leadership team. Please say
Thank you to Tracy Adams for her
insight as our President elect and the great job she has done mentoring Megan McClain who will become the
membership chair in January. Tom Green
our immediate past president who gives great guidance as we move the club
forward. Joe Spears has been a Treasurer extraordinaire reporting on our
financial success and keeping us humming.
And, of course, our secretary Emmanuel
Serriere who keeps us connected.
Emmanuel has tirelessly worked with our web designer to make sure our
eClub is a place for members to stay connected.
Improved attendance at our weekly forums. When we started this year we had about 35% of
you participating in the forums. We are
now at 71%.
Welcomed 8 new members from all over the world.
Donated extra dollars to help relief efforts for
the Boulder Floods and now to help those who have suffered so much in the
Worked with Henry
Harrison, our amazing host of our forums.
We have had many members pose questions or ask us to think about all
that Rotary does and the responses keep me thinking for days after the forum
This past Sunday I read an article in our Denver
newspaper. It was about the issue of
trust. According to this article, trust
in each other is on the decline. Right
now about 64 % of the American population believes that you can’t be too
careful in dealing with people compared with 32% of us who say “most people can
be trusted”. I am part of that 32% of
those who generally trust others. I
suspect many of my fellow eClub members fall in this category. Because of Rotary, I have seen what
individuals who are part of a great whole organization can do to better for
each other and our world.
Thank you for your good works, your good ideas and your good
role modeling to others. No matter how
you celebrate this time of year may you be surrounded by those you love and
those who love you.
See you next calendar year!
In Rotary Service,
