President's Message JULY 2014
[The August message will be here soon]
Welcome all to opening day of the 2014/2015 Rotary Year!
First and foremost, on behalf of all our members in Rotary
eClub One I would like to thank Past President Deb, the club officers and Board
members for the excellent job they did last year to move our club forward. Your
hard work and diligence did not go unnoticed.
Thank you to all of our members who participated in service
projects around the world. Ours is an active and vibrant club. As of July 1 we
are 89 members strong thanks to the new members from Australia. With their help
we should have a fantastic and productive year ahead.
Fellowship is very important to any Rotary club. Fellowship in an eClub requires a bit of
imagination. The friendships I have developed over the past 3 years are as
meaningful as any I had while a member of the Weatherford Rotary Club in
Oklahoma. We are constantly striving to find ways to use technology to enhance
fellowship and when we can we find time to meet face to face. Improved
fellowship is top of our list of things to do.
One way we are able to spend time together is by attending
the Rotary eClub One Annual Dinner. Usually it is held on Monday evening during
the Rotary International Convention. We had a lovely event in Sydney where a
good number of our members were able to attend along with hundreds of other
Rotarians and guests. We hope one day you will join us.
This coming year we will return to Colorado for our annual
dinner. We are still in the planning stages, but
the dinner is to be hosted in Boulder in combination with the Boulder Rotary
club on Wednesday evening, April 29, 2015. This is the Wednesday before
District 5450 Conference which will be held on May 1-3. For those Rotary eClub
One members who can attend there will hopefully be excursions planned and many
opportunities for fellowship and memorable moments.
For those of you who are not Rotary eClub One members, thank
you for visiting our website. We hope you find our variety of make-up programs
insightful and thought provoking. We welcome feedback. To all, have a lovely
Yours in Rotary Service,
2014/2015 President, Rotary eClub One
