On July 1 Rotaractors became full members of Rotary. Like many Rotary clubs around the world, Rotary clubs struggled during the Covid period. On Tuesday night I had the chance to visit Beaches Rotaract as they build back to their pre-Covid splendor. As they inducted 13 new members, I felt compelled to tell them that they are not a Rotaract Club, but rather just an awesome Rotary club with younger members. Beaches Rotaract Rocks!
When we reflect on yesterday’s Jaguars game with the L.A. Chargers, I hope this makes you realize that you had better buy your tickets now! Even though, I want to remind you that our partnership with the Jaguars is about more than football, it is great to celebrate another win. First and foremost, it is about contributing to eradicating Polio and second it is an opportunity to enjoy fellowship with your fellow Rotarians. For now, it is really great to continue to be in 1st place in the AFC South.
World Polio Day is October 24. What is your club doing to recognize this important event?
