Vocational Service - Rotary's First Concept 
A very interesting read by  Cliff Dochterman, Past RI President (Delivered at Presidential Celebration – Vancouver July 19, 2003).
 

“It is extremely fitting that this first Presidential Celebration of the 2003-2004 Rotary year features Vocational Service. No matter how much we like to think that Paul Harris and his friends created Rotary for such noble ideas of humanitarian service, goodwill and world understanding — it just was not the case.Rotary was started for business reasons and professional purposes. Paul Harris had the unusual idea that friendship and business might mix and result in even more business!


October is Vocational Service Month  
Each weekly program this month will have Vocation as a theme. 
We will have 4 weeks where we will talk about the different vocational professions and show case more in depth what they do. 
Often, we are in admiration of anyone that chooses a vocational profession as we all know how much dedication this type of profession needs.
