Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta in his speech to the international convention last June, mentioned his life’s guiding philosophy
“Service is the rent I pay for the space I occupy on this earth,
and I want to be a good tenant of this earth”.
It is through Rotary that we have an opportunity to serve. It is through Rotary that we have provided eyesight to the blind, food to the hungry, homes to the homeless.
Rotarians see a need and they serve.
Why else have Rotarians spent billions of dollars and volunteer hours over the last 35 years to eradicate polio and serve mankind?
Through Rotary we have set up thousands of schools, hundreds of hospitals, provided water in parched villages, brought dignity to people by providing the simple necessities of life, and locally we have used our fund raising effects to support many causes within our own community.
Rotarians serve to change lives.
Today the need to serve has become even more necessary and apparent.
