Dear Fellow Rotarians and Rotary Anns,

The old order changeth yielding place to the new
And God fulfills himself in many ways
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world..

As we enter the 76th year of this glorious Club, I salute all the Charter members, Past District Governors, Past Presidents and all the members till date for having formed an association which has not just withstood the test of time but created a lasting legacy.

Every new year brings with it new challenges but this year’s COVID challenge threatens and attacks the very existence of humankind. Social distancing, frequent hand washing, wearing masks and generally avoiding social contact is the new normal. Education systems and businesses have been thrown off gear and the very basis of Rotary – fellowship – in suspended animation.

We Rotarians thrive on such challenges. It brings out the best in us. We must continue the good work done by the previous team in providing medical assistance, food and water to the needy and deprived. As we settle into the new normal and as we accept that the fear of contracting the disease is not likely to dissipate in the immediate future, we must also anticipate the new socio-economic problems that will emerge in the coming days and months and innovate to find ways and means to mitigate such issues.

We must also concentrate our energies on fulfilling the targets set by the Rotary India Development Mission in the areas of Health, Sanitation, Literacy etc besides carrying out our existing projects. Our Interactors and Rotaractors are our NextGen. It is our responsibility to ensure their continuous involvement in our activities so as to sustain their interest in Rotary.

Together we can and together we WILL!!

Friends, I urge you to continuously maintain laid down social distancing norms and not let your guard down in your zest to achieve Rotary nirvana. Stay safe stay blessed and make it a fun year!!.

Yours in Rotary,

Sandip J Dhodapkar
