My call to action for my fellow Rotarian is to ask others to partner with us. Rather than always looking to recruit new members, emphasize that our Rotary Club is also seeking strategic partners. These partners can serve as volunteers, planning committee members, benefactors, etc. The partnership opportunities are endless. Over time, my vision is that our partners choose to formally join our ranks and continue our traditions of providing teacher mini grants, scholarships, and cars for military veterans.

Rotary International President, Holger Knaack's, theme for his presidential year is Rotary Opens Opportunities. For example, Rotary International is already undergoing a transformation from simply being the largest service organization in the world. RI is now also focusing on building new leaders. Through its partnership with Toastmasters International, the world's premier communication, public speaking, and leadership organization, Rotary International is looking to foster leadership opportunities at every level of the organization.

If you are interested in learning more about the great work of Rotary and have the opportunity to meet people of service, please contact me at dennis@pettinellifp.com. I look forward to connecting with you.
