Greetings, Dublin AM Rotarians:
Another year is here with a new President … with a major fear factor … “just don’t screw this up”.  However, when I look around the club, I see so much talent and desire to provide ‘service above self’, I am confident our members will keep the momentum going.  So here we go!
Besides keeping the good stuff going, my goal is to encourage fellowship via the following communication initiatives:
  • Walk With a Rotarian – Wednesdays at 7:30 AM – opportunity for members to enjoy
  • Use old school communication – phone calls and US Mail (bust through the plethora of email)
  • Get Back in The Habit – encourage more attendance at meetings and volunteer efforts with some new twists and ideas:
  1. Field Trip – August 5th – to get in the ‘Car Show’ spirit, we will tour the TRC (Transportation Research Center - 10820 State Route 347, East Liberty, OH 43319).  Lou Charobee coordinated this very special tour opportunity which is not open to the general public.
  2.  Rotary Club Field Trip – September 23rd – Members are encouraged to attend a different Rotary Club this week, to learn more about what other clubs are doing.  Board Members will help with coordinating car pools if needed.
  3. Multi Club Meeting – October 7th – District Governor Price Finley will join us at our meeting venue, along with the Marysville, Worthington AM, and Dublin Worthington Clubs to present District 6690 Efforts.
IMAGINE.  “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one …” These are John Lennon lyrics from the 1971 song, “Imagine”.  This song is featured as our Rotary theme for our 2022 – 2023 calendar year.  You will get tired of this song but I hope you will not tire of its meaning and what dreams our Dublin AM Rotary Club can achieve.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead our Dublin AM Rotary Club.  What I have found thus far is a ridiculous amount of talent within our club.  We are 90+ tireless members who continue to answer to the call.  We have 20 Board Members who commit to year round planning and execution.  We have 32 years of Past Presidents who provide wisdom and continued energy and enthusiasm.
If you IMAGINE – the possibilities are endless.  Let’s go!
