Dear Rotarians,

Welcome to May! What could be better than springtime in Salina, Kansas. The grass is growing, trees and flowers are starting to bloom, and the River Festival is right around the corner! In this month’s letter I thought I would share Rotary’s action plan (borrowed from

“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

As People of Action, we understand that fulfilling that vision requires a plan.

More than a century ago, we pioneered a new model of service leadership grounded in person-to-person connections. Today, those connections are a network that spans the globe—bridging cultural, linguistic, generational, and geographic barriers—and shares the vision of a better world. As People of Action, we understand that fulfilling that vision requires a plan.

This is Rotary’s Action Plan through 2024: to increase our impact, expand our reach, enhance participant engagement, and increase our ability to adapt.

Q: Why does Rotary have an Action Plan?
A: The world today is not the same as it was when Rotary began in 1905. Demographics have shifted, the pace of change has accelerated, and technology has created new opportunities for connection and service. What hasn't changed is a need for the values that define Rotary: fellowship, integrity, diversity, service, and leadership. The Action Plan honors our past and embraces our future. It is meant to help evolve Rotary as an organization to not only keep us relevant but thriving.”

Have a great May everyone!

Rotarily yours,
