The Rotary wheel keeps spinning and it is time for another year. Let me take this opportunity to congratulate the outgoing President of Rotaractors and the District Team for their excellent work during the year. The DRR Sushil Kumar Karki has done a wonderful Job of Leading the district to a successful Year. I would like to congratulate him. Let me take the opportunity of wishing all the incoming Presidents and District officials, all the best for the coming Year.
I am sure DRR Hari Chandra Satyal will take the Rotaract Clubs and District to a New Height. The Rotaractors have always been the link between the Interactors and the Rotarians. The Interactors look to the Rotaractors with hope for the future and Rotarians look at them as their Strength to grow. The youth and their visions are all embodied in the Rotaract fellowship. Rotary has always believed that the youth of today are the future of tomorrow. Thus the Rotaractors of today are the Rotarians of tomorrow who will lead the Rotary movement. The values that Rotary instills in you are the values that will take you through life. The virtue of service with leadership will build a strong character out of you. The work that you do as Rotaractors to serve and help build the community will be a path of learning and developing yourself for the future. The desire to help others will bring out the best in you.
Rotaract Build Hope is your Theme, the epitome of your thoughts. When you make a commitment you build hope, when you keep it you build trust. The commitment you make to Rotary adds trust in your life. People trust you and depend on you for changing lives, reaching out to serve the community and the world at large. The year has many challenges ahead and a lot of expectations. We will work together to take Rotary forward in our District. One family of Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors doing good in the world, serving humanity.
Let us not forget the Rotary theme given by our RI President Ian Risely this year ‘’Rotary Making A Difference.” So let us:
"Have a heart, Lend a Hand, Stand out and Make a Difference".
Your future is created by what you do today.
Wishing all of you, all the best once again for a Great year ahead.
Yours in Rotary,
Sanjay Giri DG (2017-18)
