The clubs on District 7770 do many very worthwhile projects and provide valuable service to their communities. We are asking clubs to do one of those projects during February 2016 and incorporate the theme “Rotary Has Heart” into that project. Each club may decide for itself how it wants to participate. This is first and foremost a Community Service Project, but it is also a chance for us to show thousands of communities throughout our district what Rotarians can do to Be A Gift to the World. Will you put forth the effort this month to demonstrate to your part of the world what it means to help others in the name of Rotary?
The official Rotary International theme for February is Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution. What better way to improve peace and reduce conflict in your community than to provide service where there is a need. What can your club do to help the public better understand what Rotary is and what Rotarians do to make their communities better? It is my hope that clubs will use this effort to develop their membership and to promote giving to our Rotary Foundation. Whatever way your club chooses to participate, we hope you will bear the Rotary banner proudly and tell your story boldly. After all, Rotary has heart, and there is no better way to show this collectively than through service to your part of the world.
