PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE 2022-2023
As the new president of Rotary, my goal is to bring our club into its new season, refreshed and ready to make Rotary relevant to our community. My focus for each committee is carefully tailored for each of my Directors. As always, our members are encouraged to join a committee.
Youth Services, under Dianna Lawson’s guidance and purview, will work to restore our youth-based sub-chapters of the club, namely Rotaract and Interact, at the college and high school levels, respectively. Within several years, I am hoping that our efforts in refreshing Rotaract and Interact will create a bridge between those sub-chapters and our Rotary club. I hope to see the students involved in Rotaract and Interact take a role in supporting our club’s community and international service efforts and projects. I trust that we will see a residual benefit of engaged student representatives who provide updates from their respective schools, including our Rotaract and Interact clubs. Let’s make Rotary relevant to our youth!
Our Community Service Chair, Rob Clizbe, will help steer the club toward several community service projects and an environmental effort that will be relevant to Redlands. Our club has offered physical and financial support to various projects in Redlands for decades. We are proud to begin this year with a fresh outlook and to continue to champion our causes.
