2015-2016 Rotary Club of Fortuna President  


Welcome to Explore Rotary Month!

First of all, congratulations to our 2014-15 Rotary leaders.  You did a tremendous job exemplifying Service Above Self—you made a difference in your community, our District and the world. We thank you for a job well done.

Beginning July 1, it's a new year in the Rotary world and all things are possible!

There is no offical Rotary International designation for the month of July, so I'm taking the liberty to proclaim it Explore Rotary Month. I encourage you to take a moment this month and find one new personal Rotary opportunity - maybe it's getting information on an International Project Fair from our District International Chair, or finding a Rotary Action Group or Fellowship to be a part of, or joining a club committee you haven't worked on before.

Here are a few goals to consider in the month of July:

  • Support your club leadership in attaining membership and foundation objectives
  • Donate $10 to the Rotary Foundation in the month of July on My Rotary
  • Encourage a member of your club to attend the 2015 Institute for Leadership September 18 & 19
  • Attend another club's Rotary meeting
  • Plan a World's Greatest Meal for Polio

Important dates for your calendar:


The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service; SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society; THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life; FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
