Service Above Self

As I have mentioned previously in this blog, I serve as the Area Governor for the Bethesda Rotary Clubs. Recently in this capacity, I talked with Rotary International president-elect, Gary C.K. Huang. We discussed the upcoming International Convention which will take place in Sydney, Australia June 1-4. The theme of the convention is “Light up Rotary.” More than 30 thousand are expected to attend, including myself as I represent the Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary Club.

The Rotary Clubs have focused on ending polio. At this time there are only three nations remaining with polio. Providing safe drinking water is another focus for the Rotary Clubs. I will be attending the “Safe Water” workshop at the International Convention. The Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary Club has completed two water projects and we are focusing on another next year in Africa.

Rotary is an amazing international organization with more than 1.2 million volunteer members from 34 thousand clubs worldwide helping people in need every day. The Rotary motto is “Service above self.” For more information on Rotary Clubs in Montgomery County, please visit www.rotary7620.org.
