Blue Bell Rotary Making a Difference - Celebrating Over 25 Years of Service
 
 

Dear friends, 

I would like to welcome you to the website of Blue Bell Rotary. Our club is one of 35,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. The members of these autonomous clubs are called Rotarians, and we form a global network of 1.2 million business and professional leaders, all volunteering our time, talents and expertise to serve our communities. We work differently, we see differently, and we think differently, but we exchange ideas, forge lifelong friendships and take action to change the world. A tall order, right? We are problem solvers. We are opportunity-creators as we invest in the next generation for tomorrow. We are community-builders as we work on projects that have a lasting impact on people’s lives. Put us all together and we fight disease, provide clean water, sanitation and hygiene, save mothers and children, support education and improve our communities. 

I am so proud to be a Rotarian. I knew very little about Rotary 5 years ago. I knew I wanted to do something to help others, but I didn’t really know how to begin, and with my children having their own children right and left, I felt like I didn’t have any extra time to devote to others, other than “my family.” But I soon realized “my family” was going to take on a new definition.

Connecting with Rotary has enabled me to join with my family, friends and neighbors, with community and national businesses, and with civic leaders and health care organizations to work together and create positive change in our communities.  I brought my grandchildren to our Rotary meetings all summer. Children love to help others, and it sets a good example for them to see us putting service above self and having such a fun time doing it! That is what Blue Bell Rotary is all about. We work together to help others. And we keep meeting more and more new members who have the same vision of wanting to give back and make this world a better place, community by community. 

The theme of the 2019-2020 Rotary year is “Rotary Connects the World.”  As explained by Rotary International President Mark Maloney, Rotary connects us to our communities, to professional opportunities and to the people who need our help. Rotary connects us all and we have a chance to grow rotary, grow our service, and grow the impact of our projects.

As President, my goal is to grow our club both in membership and partnerships and to continue our hands-on service projects here and abroad. Shining Hope for Communities, a program that helps uplift women from poverty in Nairobi, is one of the global projects we’ll continue to work on.  One of the local projects near and dear to my heart is CPR Training. The opportunity for Blue Bell Rotary to partner with local hospitals, township leaders and schools will be explored. Rotary connects us so we can make a difference abroad and in our community right here at home. 

 

Blue Bell Rotary Club meets:

 

Tuesday mornings from 7:15 to 8:30 AM at Normandy Farms Hotel in Blue Bell

The last Tuesday of every month is a social gathering at one of the local restaurants, in lieu of the Tuesday morning meetings.

We welcome you to join us!

 

Yours in Rotary Service,

 

Leilani Eveland Katz

President
