One of RI President Shekhar Mehta’s messages this year is Each One Bring One.  Sounds easy.  But maybe not for everybody.
How about trying something completely different?  Did you know that there are over 90 Rotary Fellowships?  And that you don’t have to be a Rotarian to join one?  Rotary Fellowships are international groups that share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world, explore a hobby or profession, and enhance your Rotary experience. They range in topics from RVing and Camping to Beer, Wine, and Whiskey Fellowships, LGBT+, Birdwatching, Bees, and a host of others.  Find a topic that interests you and invite some of your friends to join you in one of their events.  They have members from all around the world, so there’s always something to talk about! Just Google “Rotary Fellowships – Make Friends Around the World.” And now that more people are familiar with Zoom, it’s easier than ever to connect.  Look outside the box for opportunities to give the gift of Rotary.  
On a completely different note, so far I have visited 17 clubs from Cal-Mum to Canandaigua, Gananda to Prattsburg, Geneva and Honeoye Lake to Rochester and Rochester Deaf Rotary,  as part of my role as District Governor, and I have been so pleased with the activities and camaraderie exhibited at every club I have been to.  Every club has something different to offer, and the smallest clubs seem to have the biggest projects.  Plus, you all seem to really like each other!  It’s really a credit to each and every one of you that you have managed to stay connected over this very difficult period.  Bravo!  I raise a glass to you.
