The Rotary Club of Stourbridge welcomes their in-coming President.

On Friday, 1st July, the in-coming President, Vida Worsey, entertained members and friends to afternoon tea as the Rotary Club of Stourbridge began its 101st year of service in the town.  Friends, members and their partners turned out in good numbers to herald their support for Vida as the club President for 2022-23.

At Vida’s inaugural meeting she was invested with the chain of office and set out, in her inaugural address, her hopes for the coming Rotary year. 

Vida has identified two international projects which serve under-privileged communities in Uganda. These will be her focus for international financial assistance: to maintain and to build on medical provisions for their local populations.

Here in Stourbridge, Vida wishes to concentrate on provisions for the local community.  The identification and provision of support for those needs which we all know exist, but are often hidden behind the closed doors of those struggling to cope must be our hope. “I am especially concerned to identify ways to provide support for those living with the impacts of dementia.  I have seen the impact this may have on families and hope to respond with positive and meaningful assistance.”

Vida’s key target is to extend the club’s history of service.  High on the list of priorities, following a year in which several long-standing members have died, member recruitment and the expansion of the membership team is an important target.  We owe it to the legacy of these great Rotarians to honour their legacy by seeking to continue the good work they have undertaken in their turn.  A look at  www.stourbridgerotary will provide an immediate insight to local Rotary action and the means to find out more about joining the fellowship of Rotary service teams.
