Dear Rotarians and Friends,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the official webpage of Rotary District 1320 – Scotland South. As District Governor, I am honoured to serve and lead an incredible community of dedicated individuals who are passionate about making a positive difference in our communities and across the world.
Rotary is not just an organisation, but a vibrant movement that is built upon the foundation of fellowship, service, and ethical leadership and it continues to be a beacon of hope around the world. It is a global network of dedicated individuals from diverse backgrounds, united by the common goal of creating lasting change in our communities and beyond.
I am immensely proud of the incredible work that Districts 1020 & 1230 have accomplished in the past to uphold Rotary's motto of "Service Above Self", yet I am greatly enthused about the birth of our new District 1320 – Scotland South.
As I step into the position of the District Governor for 2023 -24, I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to serve alongside many dedicated Rotarians who are committed to making a positive difference in our communities. Throughout my term, I am determined to establish an environment that fosters unity, promotes wellbeing and encourages collaboration, inclusivity, and innovation. I believe that by harnessing the diverse talents, skills, and perspectives of our members, we can achieve remarkable feats and impact countless lives.
Our District is home to a vibrant and dynamic community of Rotarians who are engaged in a wide range of projects and initiatives, from supporting local schools and healthcare facilities to empowering youth and promoting sustainable development. Our collective efforts have a transformative effect on those we serve and together, we will continue to strengthen our communities and build a brighter future for generations to come. Together, we have the power to transform lives, uplift communities, and foster peace and understanding across borders.
To our visiting guests, I encourage you to explore our webpage and discover the various opportunities available to you to get involved, connect with Rotarians in your area, and contribute to our shared mission. Whether you are a former-Rotarian, new member, or someone interested in joining Rotary, we would welcome your enthusiasm, dedication, and your fresh perspectives.
As we embark on this journey together, let us embrace the power of Rotary to create hope, make a positive change and leave a lasting legacy. Together, we can make a difference, one act of service at a time.
Thank you to all Rotarians for your dedication to Rotary and for the incredible work you do each day. I am excited to work collaboratively with each and every one of you to amplify our impact, and I look forward to a remarkable year of service and fellowship.
Yours in Rotary,
Narek H. Bido
District Governor 2023-24
