The Rotary Club of Barrie would like to Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event.
We are about to embark on 2020/2021 Rotary International theme of “ROTARY OPENS OPPORTUNITIES”
Our world is facing COVID-19 and we are challenged to rethink the way in which we connect to our communities and the world, we are seeing the Doors of Opportunity Open.
New words and terms are part of our everyday. Essential Business and First Line workers. My heartfelt thanks to every one of our colleagues for their incredible efforts through this crisis. During this time of 'Staying Home’ we have opportunities to CONNECT. Connect with family and friends. Easily reaching (and seeing them) all around the world.
And OPENing DOORS OF OPPORTUNITIES for new members to join.
Fellowship Is Our Fundamental Strength.
We Are Stronger Together.
Our Traditions, our youth, our willingness, and ability to help others show all that is best in the Rotarian spirit.
Together, we are a people of action, who make a difference!!
There is no better time to be a Rotarian. To join Rotary. And to help our communities. We have been eradicating Polio, alleviating poverty, building equality, and restoring peace since 1905. We will continue doing our part.
While our weekly meetings, fundraising events and activities have been changed or postponed, our Service Above Self has not!
Throughout the years we Rotarians have… Together Inspired to Understand, Build fellowship and Goodwill.
We will continue to face incredible challenges in the coming months. The world will be struggling to adapt, to grow and prosper. And we Rotarians will be there to support and help raise up our neighbors. To be there for the many reasons that will make life challenging, be it Health, Equality, Education, Varied abilities, Underprivileged or Disadvantaged.
There is no better time to be a Rotarian. To be part of this Community. To be part of The Rotary Club of Barrie!!!
The Rotary Club of Barrie wishes you good health and safety.
