The Rotary compassion and the ability to open our hearts to those in need combined with our commitment to sharing our time, talent, and treasures with those who are less fortunate is what causes ordinary Rotarians such as ourselves to do the extraordinary things that we do. It’s what makes Rotary so magical.
“There are many needy people throughout the community and the world whose only hope will come from Rotary. Let us all leave here ready to make their lives better in any way that we can. As Rotarians, it will not be good enough to give only what we have leftover or what we can spare, but we must truly give of ourselves with new vigor in support of the ideals of Rotary. Let us lead the way as Rotary shares its “Service Above Self” legacy. We will be fortified with the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools too… Share the Magic of Rotary,” said Santosh Peddi.
