On 23rd February 1905, Rotary International was founded by Chicago-based lawyer, Paul Harris. This year, ‘Rotary Day’ will celebrate 116 years of our incredible organisation!
During that time, Rotary has united people in a common purpose – making connections and making a difference.
That ethos is happening right now in 1060 The Heart of England in a variety of ways. Despite the ongoing challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have found ways to stay connected and serve our communities when they need us most.
Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland President, Tom Griffin, has recorded a special Rotary Day message, which I encourage you to watch here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AdS1oUp8CQ
Days such as Rotary Day are a wonderful opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to all the members in our District for your continued dedication and commitment to Rotary. Our impact truly does start with you.
I hope that those hosting events or activities today have a great time. Rotary Day is also a great opportunity to promote what you’re doing in the community. There are a number of resources available for clubs - social media posts, graphics and a press release template can be downloaded here – www.rotarygbi.org/rd2021
