Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!
I hope you are all well.
Today is the first day of November. This makes me very happy as we approach the holiday season. Even though I am not an American, I have lived in the US as an exchange student and I have come to learn the American holidays. Thanksgiving is my favorite by far. You would think it must be the food, but not just that. While it is unique to the States, there is also something very universal about this holiday for the fact that we do need a reminder sometimes to be grateful for everything we are blessed with.
The month of November means Rotary Foundation Month. The Rotary Foundation is how we as Rotarians have the funds and financial source to make sure projects come true. It is the reality, the tangible project, behind the dream to create better possibilities not only for us, but for those who do not have equal opportunities. This is how we pay back to the community, to humanity. This month, our programs are dedicated to our Rotary Foundation to fully comprehend on how it works and how we can help. PP Susan Weaver, our one and only Foundation Chair, has put together these programs for us. I hope you enjoy.
Tomorrow (November 2nd) is also the first Saturday of the month, so we will have our monthly fellowship assembly via Zoom. You can find the link here: In Workplace or in our ClubRunner Calendar.
Please make sure that you drop by. It is always very nice to see new faces, as well as the regulars.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Yours in Rotary,
Ozlem Kocanaogullari
