I am extremely honored to have been elected by you all as the 11th president of our great club. I can hardly keep in my impatient to resume duties. Thank you all for your trust in me and my team.
As our club moves into its adolescent age, it is pertinent to note that our club requires a lot of improvement in the core areas of our service to humanity. I implore us to rededicate and renew our commitments to the rotary creed.
This year theme, “light up Rotary” was inspired by the teaching of chinese philosopher ‘Confucius’ who said “It is better to light up a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness” there are so many problems in the world, so many people need help. Many people say, there’s nothing I can do. So they sit there doing nothing. Meanwhile, everything stays dark. In our little corner let us light our candle.
