Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the
Rotary E-Club of One World!
Dear Fellow Members of OWR,
While we start a new Rotary year and we have new members that join us, I want to remind all of us the importance of taking part in our buddy club activities.
Buddy clubs are the Rotary clubs in your local community area, to whose meetings and activities you can attend. You can take part in the community service projects of such clubs no different than as if you were in fact a member of their own club. This helps to serve in more than a few ways:
  • This will increase your sense of belonging to the Rotary community. We all understand the challenges of being a member of an e-club. But attending physical meetings will increase sense of fellowship and help strengthen our ties.
  • You being present at a buddy club meeting will promote One World Rotary E-Club and help us recruit more members. Obviously there will be questions about our club. They will need more information. You can respond to them and also invite them to explore  Please be sure to remind them that they can always make up there for attendance by visiting our webpage and registering to the meetings.
  • By attending meetings of your buddy club, you can help us find new community service projects, partners for future collaborations, you can even help us pair up for grants. You can also see a program that can be used for our club meetings as well.
I hope you get to enjoy and cherish Rotary while serving, not only with our club members online but with the Rotarians of your local clubs through activities of the buddy clubs.  After all, Rotary Connects the World in more ways than one can imagine!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Ozlem Kocanaogullari
