It is a distinct privilege to serve the Rotary Club of Lebanon as the president for the 2012-2013 year. "Service above Self" is the theme not only of our club, but of all Rotarians worldwide. The Rotary Club of Lebanon has for years been known as the most renound and premier service oriented club in Lebanon. Our projects include building a Habitat for Humanity House, funding the installation of a water purification system in Honduras, Air Conditioners for the needy, dictionaries for all 3rd graders county wide, and our signature project Lebanon Rotary Baseball (Dixie Youth). Over the years our club has not only put financial capital into these projects but has also put a tremendous amount of our own sweat equity and time as well.
The 2012-2013 year is a year in which we will continue this legacy of service but at the same time focus on growing our membership and expanding our fundraising programs. It is my hope that these two initiatives will better position us in the future to give even more back to our community through service projects and grants.
Our club has a rich heritage and a bright future. Everything we have is because of our past and present members. You and your families truly understand and practice the selfless service that defines us. In closing, I ask that you join with me in making this year of service in Rotary memorable and one in which each member is proud to be called a Rotarian.
