My Fellow Rotarians,
I have the privilege of serving the Rotary Club of Baytown as President. It is a role that will be a challenge and I am humbled to have been asked to serve. We have a great tradition of “Service about Self “and each Present before me has built and developed our Rotary Club into one that I am proud to serve.
Our Club focus is going to be on Literacy with a focus on early childhood intervention for children in our community. The earlier books are introduced to young children in our community the better prepared they are for starting school. I would like our Club to get involved with providing young children with books. Several of the Literacy Programs that I would like our Rotary Club to sponsor are Book Buddies, Free Libraries, computer based Literacy program used in the GCCISD Schools such as Myon or ABC. I am going to ask members to donate books, recorded E Books, make displays for the free Libraries and assisting the GCCISD Literacy Program.
I will be promoting to get our web page updated with current information on all of our members, service projects, and community related Rotary events. Our Club is going to provide each member with a calendar to share information regarding Rotary events, community events, and special projects regarding happening.
Our new Rotary International President, John Germ’s theme this year is Rotary Serving Humanity. This beautiful and meaningful theme is relevant to the service we perform throughout our community. This theme can be integrated into all of our work, whether it be internally through our club’s service projects or throughout our community.
President, Rotary Club of Baytown
