District 7390 News and Events
 
Dear Rotarians,
 
It is Fellowships Month. Fellowships are a way to share interests with other Rotarians who aren’t necessarily in your club, or your district. They are a way to enhance your Rotary experience.  If you so choose.
 
Here is a link to current fellowships: https://www.rotary.org/myrotary/en/rotary-fellowships
 
I am a member of the following:
  • International Fellowship of Motorcycling Rotarians. We get together a couple times a year for an interesting ride.  In May, we had motorcyclists from Virginia, Ohio, Ontario, Missouri, North Carolina, and Virginia assemble in Berkley Springs, WV, and we completed a 500 mile journey over two and a half days. Mostly in the rain. Except for the morning we brushed snow off our bikes. The best thing we did was at mealtime where we shared our stories of the road. Great group of people. Next year there will be a ride starting somewhere in New England, and which will pick up riders along the way to Atlanta, site of next year’s annual convention.
  • Fellowship of Rotary on Stamps. We collect postage stamps. Specifically, those issued that have the Rotary Emblem on them. There are thousands of them. I generally do not do this while motorcycling.
Also a couple more. I would guess that 99% of members don’t know anything about fellowships. Take a look at the list. Maybe some fellowship on that list appeals to you. Give it a try!
 
On a personal note, I wish DGE Kevin Cogan great success and fun during his year as your district governor. And thank you for your support during my term. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
 
Yours In Rotary Service, 
John G. Kramb, DG 2015-16
 
 
The Four-Way Test (of the things we think, say or do):
  1. Is it TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 

 
The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and , in particular, to encourage and foster: 
  • First - the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • Second - High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his occupation as an opportunity to serve society; 
  • Third - The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal, business, and community life;
  • Fourth - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
