Rotarians: Creating Hope

As the President of the Rotary Club of Mt. Airy, I am honored to have been selected to lead this amazing group of “People of Action” who always puts Service Above Self. We are embarking on a fresh year with new ideas and bold goals to help Create Hope in the World. I am surrounded by a team of humble and
eager Rotarians to lead the way in the Five Avenues of Service. These five avenues are the foundation of Rotary’s activities and philosophy.

  • Club Services
  • Vocational Services
  • Community Services
  • International Services
  • Youth Services

Our theme for this Rotary year is  “Create Hope in the World”, a powerful and inspiring call to action. In a world where challenges may seem insurmountable, Rotary has always been a beacon of hope, standing as a testament to the incredible change that is possible when compassionate hearts and determined minds come together.

As we have regained our full potential from the grips of the Pandemic, we are able to shape and design our ability to serve for years to come. I long for opportunities like this to lead. We are able to once again, do good in our community at the highest levels. Our Club is full of Rotarians that live by our 4 Way Test and exude these principles in every facet of their lives.

If you have ever wanted to be a part of something exciting and fulfilling, please join us at our next Club Meeting. We welcome everyone and encourage you to see for yourself. Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision to “Create Hope in the World. ”

President 2023-2024
