During the recent Rotary International Convention, RI President Elect Nominee Jennifer Jones made a powerful statement on Rotary's strengths saying, In Rotary, we know our differences really are our strengths.  It is our diverse perspectives that help us to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.  Jennifer E. Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, has been nominated to become Rotary International’s president for 2022-23, a groundbreaking selection that will make her the first woman to hold that office in our organization’s 115-year history.  Prior to official approval by RI, in 1988 Rotary Club of Fort Collins inducted our first three women - Jean Griswold, Linda Hopkins and Joan Chambers....  
"Rotary is a Membership Organization that does Service."  With those words, our June 23 speaker, Brad Howard (aide to RI President-Elect Jennifer E. Jones), turned our traditional model on its head, asking us to consider whether we are just another service organization among all the many service organization, or to consider whether we are an organization that enables members to grow and become the leaders our world needs.   "Rotary is the gateway to live better lives for better businesses, family and community", said Howard in his inspirational address.  To view Brad Howard's full presentation CLICK HERE.  Photo: Brad Howard and RCFC Member Rajiv Mehta on a polio vaccination trip to Africa.
