A Message from Paula Talbot, Current President of Windsor-Roseland Rotary

Let’s begin to IMAGINE what the coming year can bring for us, for the community and for the world. 
How lucky are we, the district and the club to be able to support one of our own, in the ultimate role of Rotary ….. RI President Jennifer Jones. We are all thrilled to support and cheer Jennifer on and thank her for asking us to IMAGINE ROTARY. The possibilities are endless.
I would like you to take a moment to think of this one simple question … 
WHY do you continue to come back, week after week?
Is it for service?  Friendship?  Chicken and Pasta?  Travelling?  To change the world?  Yourself?

I truly believe that once you know your WHY, it will make it even easier for you to IMAGINE what you WANT to see in Rotary and in the future. 
Let’s bring a spotlight to what we do.
 difference in our community, our world and ourselves.
