Governor's Message
What an exciting time to be in Rotary!
 
We are running with the baton in a Rotary Relay Race, and it’s our responsibility to move it ahead to the next teams.  We aspire to hand the baton of a polio-free world to our successors.  We proudly launch the Rotary Foundation’s second century, delivering its promise through district and global grants.  We build our communities here in New England and around the world.
 
Each of us is proud to be a Rotary Club member. We help schools, paint buildings, serve meals, share books and travel the world on medical missions.  Rotarians are People of Action: we see challenges instead of impossible problems, and we join forces to tackle them.  
 
Our New Hampshire and Maine Clubs have forty different sets of community projects but one common belief: through our service, we can leave the world a better place than it was when we began. This is a marathon, not a sprint, driven by the values of the Four-Way Test and our motto, Service Above Self.  
 
We work in Rotary’s six areas of focus: saving mothers and children, providing clean water, fighting disease, growing local economies, supporting education and promoting peace. When our communities have met these challenges, we will have built a platform of sustainable peace.  This Pyramid of Peace takes a long time to build, so let’s start today.  Please join with me on this journey.  
 
Thank you for the many ways you are Making a Difference with Rotary in District 7780.
