Rotary Serving Humanity
Club Visits Underway and Treasures Have Been Found
Nancy and I have been visiting clubs for the past 10 weeks and we are so amazed with the diversity and vitality of each and every club. We have made so many friends and are constantly reminded by the good works Rotarians do in our communities. There are so many lives enriched by the efforts of the Rotary Clubs and their members.
This month is Literacy Month and we should all be mindful of the effect we have on the youth we encounter. They look to us as role models and seek our guidance as they navigate the never-ending road of learning. We can be a positive influence to each and every one of these youth with a little effort and organization. All it takes is a caring attitude and desire to be a listener. When we offer counsel to the youth of today it must include good listening skills as today more than ever, our youth want to know their story matters and that someone will share these experiences. Organize a reading committee to share reading duties with elementary school age children and you will make friends for life. Offer to be a guide on a middle school field trip and share your experiences with these eager students. Engage in activities at the high school in your community and show these students you care about their future. Promoting literacy and offering a caring hand are wonderful ways to be a positive influence on young people.
