The Stryker Rotary Club was graced with a visit from District Governor Rex Engle at their regular meeting on Tuesday evening. Governor Engle challenged each of the members to think about why they joined Rotary and if they have invited others to join recently. He said we read about the international projects Rotary is involved with where they are carrying out the core values of the organization, and those same core values are involved with the many local projects individual clubs support regularly.
Governor Engle also discussed several of the core values in service, fellowship, leadership, and ethics. He also told of the importance of supporting the Rotary Foundation in continuing the work of supporting good will and peace around the world, and improving the quality of life for millions of people.
Governor Engle challenged each Rotarian to donate $125 to the Rotary Foundation this year, suggesting $100 for the foundation and $25 toward Polio Plus. Rotary’s goal to eradicate polio has been challenged this year with at last count 249 new cases worldwide.
Governor Engle encouraged the club to have fun and find ways to bring new life back into their club. He suggested visiting other clubs when out of town and find what they are doing to keep their members active. The goal should be to have a new spark that creates new light for the organization.
