She said: “I will like to thank fellow Rotarians as we mark the beginning of the new rotary year with this investiture ceremony. First of all, I would like to thank my fellow Rotarians for selecting me to lead our club as President for the Rotary year. I am indeed honored to be in this highly reputable organization. I will be dedicated to the club, the same way I have demonstrated my commitment over the few years since I was first inducted into the club.
“As we all know, Rotary is service to humanity. As we transit into a new rotary year, I will want to remind us the purpose of this service organization which summarized at its 7 area of focus: Peace and conflict prevention, Disease prevention and treatment, Water and sanitation, Maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy, Economic and community development and Environment.
“With respect to the focus, I urge all members to be ready to give a hand of support where needed as we work together to “Serve to change lives”. Fellow Rotarians and my board members, as we work towards our plans for this year, I am keeping my promise that I will not be long in executing projects that would bring the change we have long awaited for.
“A quote by Wilson Churchill says ‘We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give’. Let us try and make ourselves available, remembering the less fortunate around us and the fact that life in abundance come as a result of giving ourselves to others knowing fully well that the more we give to ourselves, the more we are likely to receive making us to be real ‘Changemakers’.
“So, fellow Rotarians as we have been doing for so many years, I hereby take the role of leadership of this great club seeking to achieve our theme for the year “Serving to change lives” in togetherness. I promise to be ready and determined to make a difference. I cannot achieve this project alone but with your support and partnership, which I am very optimistic that it is possible. Join me and my team as we make a change in discharging our humanitarian services. I wish all Rotarians a successful and rewarding year.”No tags for this post.
