No Meeting This Week
Happy Rotary New Year!
Today is the start of a new Rotary year! We look forward to Rotary Opening Opportunities in our community and around the world - under the leadership of:
- President Ardy Bastien at the Rotary Club of Dunwoody
- District Governor Kirk Driskell from the Rotary Club of Alpharetta
- Rotary International President Holger Knaack from the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Molin in Germany. Holger Knaack's story is featured in the July issue of The Rotarian magazine - he's our first ever RI President from Germany, wears jeans, eschews ties most of the time and is a strong supporter of Rotary Youth Exchange. The article quotes a German phrase: "man hot die Leute ins Boot" that translates into "getting people on board to work together toward a common goal." It also says it's important to our RI President to know that "working hard doesn't mean you can't also have a good time." Great inspiration for the coming year.
And you might want to read your Rotarian magazine during this week off from meetngs - because you never know what questions Gary Lane might ask with raffle tickets or a Starbucks card for the winning answer.
