Greetings from The Rotary Club of Fullerton,
Another rotary year is upon us. The Rotary International Convention concluded recently
in Hamburg, Germany. In excess of twenty-five thousand Rotarians from all around the
world attended. The convention emphasized the five core values of Rotary:
service, fellowship, diversity, integrity and leadership. You will find that the
Rotary Club of Fullerton cherishes and exhibits these five core values.
The words “service above self” are heard in every Rotary club around the world.
It is the spirit of service that unites and drives Rotarians forward.
The Rotary Club of Fullerton has engaged in service above self since its founding days.
It is the great satisfaction that comes from service which feeds the hearts of all members
of the club.
Fellowship is the glue that holds the members of the club together. Through fellowship lifelong friendships are created. The interaction of fellowship allows members to gain a greater tolerance of others within the club and in our community. It is the strength in relationships built through fellowship that gives the member the opportunity to see past race, gender andnationality to realize how much we all share in common.
Diversity gives the members of the club the opportunity to broaden the scope of our activities, programs and areas of service to the community.
Integrity is one of the strengths of the Rotary Club of Fullerton. Honesty, accountability and high ethical values are constantly exhibited amongst our member at our meetings and service projects in the community. This level of integrity is carried forth by each and every member in their work and lives in the community.
Leadership qualities are highly valued in our Club. The Club is always striving to develop and nurture current as well as future leaders through our programs, service projects and
encouragement of participation in club organizational positions. Training is also provided by the Rotary District and by Rotary International.
We are a strong, active, engaging and fun club. The Rotary International theme of the new incoming president is “Rotary Connects the World.” I ask you to take the time to visit the Rotary Club of Fullerton at one of its weekly luncheons on Wednesdays at the Coyote Hills Golf Course.
Better yet, come to one of our projects, news of which can be found on our website. Come and see the vibrant and fun club that we are. Experience what we do in our community and learn about the global impact you can have through Rotary. Yes, please come and “Plug into Fullerton Rotary and Connect to the World.”
Yours in Rotary,
President, Rotary Club of Fullerton
