Rotary- Making a Difference - 2017/2018 (You Betcha!!!)
As Rotarians each of you makes a difference every day. You make incredible things happen in our beautiful city of Beverly, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and even in the world. 
By the way you act; by the things you say; through the integrity you bring to your work; and by the service you focus on: You help change the world we all live in.  We all bear the banner of Rotary in our own way. But together, as the Beverly Rotary Club, we have a rewarding opportunity to give back to the community we love; make incredible things happen; and help a lot of deserving groups and individuals. And it all started the day you walked into your first Rotary meeting.
 I’m sure each of you, no matter if this is your first year in Rotary, or your  44th year (way to go Neiland Douglas, Jr. -1973) each of you remembers the excitement and pride you felt when you first became a Rotarian. With that in mind, during the coming year, I’d like to ask a couple of things from all of you:
First- Get involved!  “You get out of it what you put into it” is a saying we have all heard before-but it’s TRUE.  The more you become involved in Rotary the more Rotary will mean to you.  Just having this community of people you can call friends will make a difference in your daily lives. 
Second- Bring your talents!  Tell me what you are passionate about and we can work together to use those skills in the club to enhance our work.
Third- Bring in new members!  The more the merrier.  Encourage others to become involved in Rotary.  Everyone is a stakeholder in their community and Rotary strives to make the community better for all to work, live and play in. 
And lastly, Have Fun!  Well, we’re very good at that!!         

   This year, with support from all of you, I want to continue to build on the success that the Club has enjoyed this past year under President Bill, and to maintain focus on homelessness and hunger. Additionally, I have three goals that I would like to work on during my year as President:

  1. I want to do a joint service project with a business here in Beverly.
  2.  I want to pursue a global grant –we have had some initial conversations with a club in England.
  3.  I want to complete a service project tied to the environment-much more to come on these later.

 

Thank you all for this opportunity to be the President of this terrific club. I thank MY community –my fabulous and patient family, my fun friends, my wonderful and supportive work colleagues.
 I stay in Rotary because of the difference it has made in my life, and the community and world that we all live in. 
In closing, I am honored to take my place among the Rotarians that have served as President before me and those that will serve in the many years to come. 

Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it bring goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
