Wow, what a finish to the 2019-2020 Rotary year, and it appears the upcoming year is going to present more  new and challenging opportunities, But that’s our theme this year, isn’t it…”Rotary Opens Opportunities”. 
Since 1905, whenever there has been challenges, Rotary has been there to help, and this year is no different.  We may be meeting on-line, but our goal is still to serve others through our local and international projects.  I’ve always said that “…where preparation meets opportunity, you’ll find success…” (Bobby Unser).
“The Rotary Foundation has added a 7th area of focus this year, Supporting the Environment.  More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.
Supporting the environment becomes Rotary's seventh area of focus, which are categories of service activities supported by global grants. It joins peacebuilding and conflict prevention; disease prevention and treatment; water, sanitation, and hygiene; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and community economic development.” (Rotary International)
So put on you running shoes, we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, so lets get prepared.  I know we’ll succeed in whatever opportunity we take on.
