President's Message     


The international work of Rotary is awesome! Whether it be polio eradication or potable water, education, feeding, clothing or housing the less fortunate, or disaster relief, emergency shelters, wheel chairs for the disabled, or aid to make productive citizens, Rotarians are involved.


Of course without the local Rotary clubs, the international work would not be done and the service to the local communities would be missing. Just our own help at the Trenton Soup Kitchen equals 180 person hours per year and last year the club donated 144 service hours of bell ringing. Our participation and leadership in Morrisville events is a friend-building experience, as well as a way to raise funds for local and international interests.


You and I are privileged to be a part of this diversified Rotary family that consists of 1,792,957 members in 58,630 clubs.  This is world understanding month so let us consider our unique time and place on this earth and make the most of the opportunities we have to do good for mankind.
