On assuming the role of President for the year 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018, at our meeting held on Thursday, 29th June, our incoming President, Natalie Bosomworth commented as follows.
"Our Rotary theme for 2017-18, chosen by our Rotary International President Elect, Ian Riseley, is “Making a Difference”.
On first thoughts this is a bizarre choice of theme. We didn't join Rotary to eat, gamble, chill out. We chose to join Rotary to make a difference.
We all make a difference. Firstly we must never underestimate the bond of fellowship and the difference that can make to an individual’s life. As friends we combat isolation and loneliness, we give each other purpose, we offer a shoulder when times are hard and celebrate when times are good. We continue this fellowship in the community. We have, over the years, created memories that will stay with people and provide them with encouragement, support and smiles in lonely hours or happy hours.
And through this work we have made a difference."
