Club President's Welcome Address
I welcome you to the Rotary Club of Accra – Ring Road Central, as the 34th President of this dynamic Rotary club in its 35 years of Rotary Service.
When the club was chartered 35 years old ago as the third club in Accra, I am very sure it was exciting and enthusiastic a Rotary year as it is this year.
Since this pandemic caught us unawares, one would say this year is not an ordinary year. Yes I agree with that and I would also agree with Rotary
International President Holger Knack saying that the challenges of the year also provide us with endless opportunities.
We look forward to new ways of executing and achieving the purpose for which we are Rotarians. We are forced to adapt, not just for this year but also for
the future. The challenges of our times this year will allow us to operate as we usually do but in a virtual or semi-virtual manner. We would find innovative
and exciting ways to fellowship and bond with our fellow Rotarians and partners in service, to implement service in our areas of focus, to develop ourselves professionally and most importantly Serve Above Self. It is all good.
The opportunities are enormous and we intend to embrace them fully. Our club has always played leadership roles in our space and we will
continue by growing potential leaders in our club. Many of our members have indicated how they miss hands-on projects. We will look out to implement impactful and hands-on service projects. Though we have to play it safe, we will share fellowship in our usual style – exciting, fun and relevant. Growing in Rotary and self-development has always been important to me. We will continue to improve the development of our members and partners in service professionally and in Rotary knowledge. As pacesetters, we will shape the club to prepare ourselves for the changes in the future.
As one of the Rotary clubs in the organization, our club is always poised to unite as leaders, exchange ideas and take action towards achieving a common goal even as the world is changing rapidly.
With our revamped website, one would find relevant educative news and information on Rotary and our world today. We would give you exciting glimpses of our programs, events and activities. We would tell our story of service to the community and underprivileged in society, all in line with Rotary’s new brand guidelines. We celebrate our 35th birthday this Rotary year and it promises to be one kind of a celebration. Do watch this space!
