|January Rotary Awareness Month|
marks the beginning of the second half of the Rotary year.
It's a time to look back on what we've accomplished so far, to
assess our progress, and to renew our determination to achieve
our goals in the months remaining. It's a time to discuss and
evaluate the goals of our clubs as well as the goals we've set
for ourselves as Rotarians.
also Rotary Awareness Month, a time for us to consider how our
Rotary values – and our own actions – influence public
perceptions of Rotary. Our strategic plan outlines five core
values that define and guide us as we chart a course into our

is a guardian of the reputation that generations of Rotarians
have worked to build. When we maintain the highest ethical
standards in all of our dealings, we strengthen the trust that

value. Each of us must remember, with our every action, that
we are Rotarians. When we are chosen to become Rotarians, and
when we choose to accept that honor, we take it upon ourselves
to become representatives of the entire organization.
When we are
known as Rotarians, then everything we do reflects upon us
all. By living by our core values and committing to Service
Above Self, we build a stronger Rotary and a better world for

fortunate enough to have the opportunity to

Mrs Mark Bennett from a suburb of Dallas, Texas, USA to come
aboard for a charity event be shown a
tour, meet fellow rotarians, enjoy drinks and nibbles
and exchange banners. After deducting the
costs for food and drinks the club made an
approximate profit of $2,500.00. This money will go
towards one of our local Rotary Charities.
