Day 1 – Off we go…

by Jul 8, 2019MOJO Blog0 comments

As I make my first club visit today, I’m mindful of the Word of the Day today, Peaceful (July 8, 2019).   It seems so appropriate as I get on the road so early for the long drive alone to the west.  It’s a solemn drive, plenty of time to contemplate what “wisdom” I might be able to share with my fellow Rotarians in Alliance.  My real role is to help them discover new ideas, and help them see beyond the “fences” they have been snuggled safely behind for so long.  I don’t want anyone to feel like I’m “the home office” coming out to tell them what to do, or what they are doing wrong.  That’s not my role.  I’m just so excited to learn, and be able to take their ideas to everyone else.  That’s what I hope we can all do here with this blog.

So today it all begins.  I’m sure we’ll all talk about the given, the Rotary Strategic Plan put forth by RI President Maloney, his 4 strategic priorities, our theme, “Rotary Connects the World”, but most of all how Rotary Connects us All. 

See you soon.
