On Tuesday, October 25th, our District Governor, Alexander Falk, visited our club to share his thoughts on the meaning of the 2022-2023 Rotary theme. The center image reflects the table, that we as Rotarians, join leaders, exchange ideas, and create impact. The seven dots around the perimeter are the Seven Areas of Focus which are illustrated below:
One of the major initiatives for this year is the environment and what Rotary can do to make a difference! The final piece of the theme logo is the green stick below the image. This is an implement that the aborigines from Australia use to plant, nurture, and harvest their crops. Ultimately, this reflects the tools we have at our disposal to create the Rotary we imagine.
Alexander provided thoughts on his journey from his initial introduction to Rotaract, the time lapse before joining The Rotary Club of Marblehead, and his involvement in Rotary Youth Exchange, and ultimately to be selected to be District Governor.
Finally, we had three new Rotarians installed into our club by Alexander. They were Stacey McDaniel of the Life Care Center of Stoneham, Jessica Glezellis of Reading Cooperative Bank, and Ann Marie Doris of the Stoneham Motor Company. Two other new members that will be installed soon are Heather Mell of the Greater Boston Stage Company and Roseanna Rodrigues of Northern Bank. Each of these new members will share some of their personal history at future meetings.
I will send an email to our membership that provides the links to all of the exciting possibilities that Alexander shared with us at his Official Visit for you to use as you define your Rotary journey. Just Imagine Rotary and find ways to make impact locally and throughout the world. There is something for everyone!
Alexander is always available by email at al+7930@falk.us.
