Welcome to Fellowship Month
 
June---an appropriate time to pause and reflect upon this past Rotary year as we celebrate our successes, install our new Rotary boards, and anticipate the potential of our incoming theme:  Rotary Connects the World!  We look forward to hearing about Leslie’s endeavors in Hamburg and all the connections she has made worldwide and upon Bob’s return from Africa, his networks forged.
 
In the fabric of a Rotary year we weave many memorable stories including Port Orchard Cares and local and global service projects completed, meetings held, and Spotlight on a Member and Rotarian moments shared.   As many of us know the reasons why Rotarians join the family of Rotary is to serve, yet it is the sense of fellowship and camaraderie that emerges as a primary reason Rotarians remain in Rotary. Take a moment to consider how your experience has been enriched by people you have met. Sometimes it is a stranger who self introduces when seeing your Rotary pin or earrings, sometimes it is getting to know another club member as you work side by side, or sometimes it is sitting in a District Assembly classroom learning more about the leadership role you are about to take on.   Whether a casual conversation before a regular meeting, a club social that brings together family and friends, or a warm sense of welcome while connecting with a club member…. our Rotary friendships are forged and strengthened.   We are enriched by our experiences and the people with whom they are shared.   It is these connections that inspire us and often motivate us to contribute time, energy, and resources to making this the world we hope it can be.
 
As Rotarians, as we discovered at the District Leadership training and service project partnerships, we are united member to member and club to club. Fellowship---perhaps the greatest gift we are given in return for our ‘service above self’. Thank you Rotary for creating so many moments….. memories that will stay strong for years to come!
