News from the Club President
First, I want to extend a sincere thank you to all members who helped make this a successful year for the Bennington Rotary club! And now that I have re-enlisted for another year as President, I look forward to a year of continued success and extending our impact in the Bennington community and beyond! Each member owns a part of our collective success and I encourage each of you to do your part in our activities in whatever way you can during the coming year!
Next, I want to introduce the Rotary Theme and Logo for the 2023 - 2024 Rotary year. The RI President, Gordon McInally has adopted the theme of "Create Hope in the World".
His personal experience and the impact of the many influences on people’s lives - sharp divisions, the pandemic impact, war and conflicts and the many natural disasters - have placed extraordinary strains on the mental health of each individual and the resources which are devoted to helping those in need. President McInally has outlined his many focus areas many of which are provided in the excerpted portions of his speech at the RI conference in May provided in the newsletter Guest Column section.
I want to also provide the Officers and Board members who are, in most cases, continuing their positions to guide and support the activities of our club. Each of these individuals serve on the Board.
Yours in Service,
