Rotary Club of Abbotsford Sumas

2017-18 Rotary Year - Message from President Rick Barkwell

Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Phillips Brooks
 
2017-18 Rotary Theme is “Rotary Making a Difference”
 
I love this theme because every one of us in this room has a different interpretation of this, a different meaning for it, and I’m going to ask each of the club members and our guests to email me, what it means to you, and how Rotary can make a difference so that these 20 people will continue to make this the little club that does.
 
I am honoured to be your president, from each of you I am inspired to do better, to be better.
 
In closing a quote from Starbucks Chairman Howard Shultz:  "If you dream small dreams, you may succeed in building something small. For many people, that is enough. But if you want to achieve widespread impact and lasting value, be bold."
And I would add, BE BOLD, BE A ROTARIAN.
