President's Message

Fellow Rotarians:

Sometimes it's easy to forget as we meet for our local Michigan City meetings that Rotary is a global network of community volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to tackling some of the world's most pressing humanitarian challenges. Why should we encourage others to Join us as a member of the Rotary Club of Michigan City?

  1. Service Opportunities: As Rotarians we provide numerous opportunities to participate in local and international service projects. Whether it's addressing health issues, promoting education, or supporting community development, Rotary offers a platform for individuals to make a positive impact.
  2. Networking: Rotary is known for its diverse and extensive network of professionals and community leaders. That is true of our Michigan City club. As I have said, "If you want to be a leader come hang out with the leaders." Our new members are provided valuable networking opportunities, both professionally and personally. What better way is there to connect with like-minded individuals who share a commitment to service?
  3. Professional Development: Rotary clubs are known to host speakers and programs that cover a wide range of topics, and we are no different. Programs contribute to members' personal and professional development.
  4. International Understanding: Rotary is a global organization with clubs in almost every country. Joining Rotary can broaden one's understanding of different cultures and perspectives. There are opportunities for international collaboration on service projects.
  5. Friendship and Fellowship: I am so proud of the developing camaraderie and friendship among members. Our regular meetings, social events, and shared service projects create a supportive and welcoming community. Who wouldn't want to be part of that?
  6. Leadership Opportunities: In Rotary we encourage members to take on leadership roles within our club. We provide opportunities to develop and enhance leadership skills. This can be particularly beneficial for professional and personal growth.
  7. Ethical Standards: Rotary is committed to promoting high ethical standards in all aspects of life. Each week we proclaim the "Four-Way Test," ethical guidelines that Rotarians use as a moral code in both personal and professional relationships.
  8. Humanitarian Initiatives: Rotary is actively involved in global efforts to eradicate polio, provide clean water, support education, and address other critical issues. Joining Rotary allows individuals to contribute to these impactful initiatives.
  9. Community Impact: Joining Rotary provides an avenue to make a tangible and positive difference in our community. Our Rotary club's history has been one of working on projects that address specific needs and challenges.
  10. Fun and Fellowship: In our Rotary club we value the importance of enjoyment and fun in the midst of service. Club meetings and social activities bring joy and fulfillment to the Rotary experience.
Yours in Service
