July 1st marks the beginning of the new Rotary year. The theme for 2012 – 13 from RI President Sakuji Tanaka, Rotary Club of Yashio Japan, is Peace Through Service.
During our Club activities, our business ventures and our daily life chores, President Tanaka has asked each Rotarian to remember the following:
to see the needs of others as more important than our own needs
to focus on a shared goal that is for the good of all
In our daily lives, Rotarians worldwide follow the well known 4-Way Test:
Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
As long as we live up to the 4-Way Test, the request from RI President Tanaka should be an easy task to accomplish.
Both locally and internationally our Club continues to look for areas of need, assisting those less fortunate than ourselves. This assistance is usually in some form such that it creates a much needed improvement in the health and well being of the residents of the area. We will continue this; in so doing we see the needs of others as more important than our own needs.
New members are welcome.
