Message from District Governor Dolly Yeap for The Month of July 2021

Wednesday, 30 June 2021




MY FELLOW ROTARIANS,

Tonight, as the clock strikes passed midnight, the Rotary year 2021- 2022 begins.

It is the start of OUR JOURNEY TOGETHER TO REACH OUT TO CHANGE LIVES.

This too marks the beginning of my term as your District Governor.

When our Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta called his District Governors the CHANGE MAKER, it came to my mind that for a start, I have made the change by being the first woman to lead our District after 30 years of its inception. I once again thank all of you for your confidence in me. I will do my utmost best and together we will excel to do more for our community in needs.

I know you are thinking of the pandemic, so do I. We should think positive and adapt to the situation to bring out the best of us and our club members. What are we capable of doing? When there are changes, uncertainties come with it. Change is here to stay for uncertainty is for us to adapt and make an impact.

As the new term begins, I hope that we are able to reflects just for a moment, the activities, fellowship in the club, bonding within members and the type of giving you wish to contribute. Despite the limitations imposed upon us by the lockdown, I call upon you to continue to be in contact with your fellow club members so as to keep the friendship and bonding alive and strong. You are in the best position to bind your club and the members together.

Unity amongst us FIRST is important before we could reach out to others. Unity must begin within the club and then beyond to all regions of our District in carrying out our activities be it club meetings, seminars, joint club projects, buddy walk, ride, planting trees, cleaning the beach, gathering of families and friends of Rotary or even Rotary members having a WGmeal together, we can do it. Together we build cohesiveness, understanding, trust, teamwork, and fellowship that strengthen our ability to expand our reach and increase our engagement.

We can reach the sky in anything we do if we put our mind and heart to it. For many of us, Rotary is like our second home. We love Rotary, argue over Rotary and non- stop talking about Rotary. Our passion for Rotary makes a difference to our lives as we help with kindness and smile with a giving heart. In whatever we do, we must enjoy doing it, love it and be happy about it.

Please join me in this new chapter of our Rotary journey to

REACH OUT TO CHANGE LIVES.

Thank you and take care always.

Yours in Rotary
Dolly Yeap
