The Rotary Washington Forge welcomes the new Rotary year 2017-18.

Rotary International President Ian H.S. Riseley has chosen Rotary: Making a Difference as his theme for the year declaring that in 2017-18 we will answer the question “What is Rotary?” with the theme Rotary: Making a Difference. However each of us chooses to serve, we do it because we know our service makes a difference in the lives of others.

Whether we are building a new playground, planting trees, looking after our environment, or running a swimathon to support good causes, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better. Whatever motivation each of us had for joining Rotary, it is the satisfaction we find in Rotary that causes us to remain, the satisfaction of knowing that week by week, year by year, we are part of Rotary: Making a Difference
