Dear Fellow Rotarians,

Welcome to the New Rotary Year 2021-2022! Firstly, I would like to congratulate Past District Governor Charles on a successful Rotary Year. It was another challenging year, but Rotarians have found innovative ways to carry out Club Meetings, Projects and Fundraisers. It is important for Rotarians to continue learning and growing, so that we can adapt to the new normal. The World is changing everyday, and we must change with it.

Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta’s theme for the New Rotary Year is “Serve to Change Lives”, where he is encouraging members to become more involved in service projects. And, in serving others it is the best way to live, because it not only changes the other person’s life, but also our own.
 
One of the goals of Rotary International President Shekhar is to grow Rotary to 1.3 million members Worldwide, the call to action is “Each One, Bring One”. Impact starts with our members; we are the leaders who are improving not only our communities but also Internationally!
In a quote by Harriet Tubman: “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars and to change the World.”
 
First Lady Amanda and I are looking forward to working with each and every one of you. Our District is amazing, welcoming and one of a kind! And, I am proud to be part of this dynamic District 7020!
 
Yours in Rotary Service,
Louis Wever
District Governor 2021-2022 
District 7020
