Fellow Rotarians

As we stand at the threshold of a new Rotary year, I am thrilled to embark on this remarkable journey with each and every one of you. The beginning of the Rotary year holds immense promise and excitement, fueling our passion for service above self. Together, let us unite under the common goal of making a positive difference in the world.

Fellows, we are part of an incredible organization that epitomizes service. Our commitment to service above self is not just a motto; it is a way of life that resonates deep within our hearts. It is what drives us to seek out opportunities to uplift and empower others, to bring hope to those who need it most.

In the year 2023-2024, we have the privilege of aligning our efforts with the visionary goals set by the Rotary International President, Gordon McInally. Let us embrace this opportunity wholeheartedly and work towards creating a world filled with hope and inspiration. Together, we can be catalysts of change, spreading kindness, and compassion wherever we go.

Unity is the cornerstone of our Rotary family. As we embark on this journey, let us stand together, supporting and encouraging one another. In our diversity lies our strength. By fostering goodwill and understanding, we can overcome any challenges that come our way. Let us be a shining example of collaboration and harmony, inspiring others to join us in our mission of service.

Rotarians, I am humbled and honored to serve as your District Governor. I am truly inspired by your unwavering dedication and enthusiasm. Your commitment to Rotary’s objectives and mission is commendable, and I am confident that together, we will achieve remarkable things.

In the coming year, let us ignite a spark of hope in every project we undertake, in every life we touch. Let us work tirelessly to bring positive change to our communities, leaving a lasting impact that transcends borders and generations. Together, we can create a legacy that will be remembered for years to come.

As we embark on this incredible journey, I want to express my sincere gratitude for your continued support and involvement. Your passion and commitment are the driving forces behind our success. I look forward to collaborating with each and every one of you, sharing ideas, and working hand in hand to make a meaningful difference in the world. Moreover, I would like to submit my deepest gratitude to PDG George Azar for all the distinguished efforts he has put along with his team in serving Rotary and our district in 2022-2023.

It is my pleasure also to announce to you the district website (www.rotaryd2452.org) in its revamped look will be launched within the upcoming few hours. The website will reflect our diversity and will serve as a gateway to all those who would like to know more about our district. Moreover, the District Facebook and Instagram pages can be accessed on their addresses (https://www.facebook.com/D2452.Rotary; https://www.instagram.com/rotarydistrict2452).

May this year be filled with fruitful endeavors, inspiring projects, and unforgettable moments. Let us seize every opportunity to serve, to make a tangible impact on the lives of others. Together, let us create a world where hope flourishes, and where the spirit of Rotary shines brightly.

Yours in service,
