OCTOBER IS VOCATIONAL MONTH
 
Vocation is the first Avenue of the 5 Avenues of Service. Through the Avenue of Vocational Service, Rotarians contribute their professional expertise and skills to address societal problems and needs, while promoting high ethical standards.
It would be interesting to learn of Rotarians within the District using their vocational skills to the benefit of the the community both locally and internationally
The District website along with the RI Website is available for guidance.

"I GIVE MORE THAN I TAKE"

 

That was the statement made by one Rotarian to Ray Burman President of Rotary International in Britain and Ireland (RIBI).  Burman, as he prefers to be called, used that phrase in a talk at the Mini-Comvention to underline "Service above Self".
Burman,gave a morale raising speech about membership and retention and lifted the spirits of all who were present. He spoke with great passion about the real difference Rotary has made to his life and career, reminding us that it is our duty to try to pass the gift of membership on to others.
His talk was  followed by seminars on Foundation and Vocation and Protection Issues.
