Celebrating the Magic of Rotary

Rotarians around the world are celebrating the beginning of a new Rotary Year, and with it their own internal theme for 2024 -2025.   Rotary International President Stephanie Urchick in announcing the 2024-25 presidential theme is The Magic of Rotary  called on members to recognise and amplify the organisation’s power to save lives.

The Magic of Rotary

She said “It’s up to you. You create the magic with every project completed, every dollar donated, and every new member.”

“The plan is all about building on our best ideas, not abandoning them. We face a tough balancing act. We must change ourselves and stay true to who we are.”

Rotary’s Action Plan looks at finding a balance between continuity and change, and continuing its work for peace.  Urchick also reiterated Rotary’s commitment to eradicating polio, a project that it began in 1985 and where polio is now only endemic in two countries in the world. 

Our own District Governor for Cumbria & Lancashire in 2024-2025 is Kath Robinson.
