Legacy, Tradition, and Continuity
Our current, past, and future club presidents discussing club matters while enjoying a little fellowship
My name is Joe Young, and it’s my honor to serve as the 2020-2021 President of The Rotary Club of Columbus. Founded in 1915 with our first meeting in February of 1916, our club is one of the oldest and largest within Rotary International.
Our membership includes a diverse set of leaders within business, city government, military affairs, healthcare, education, arts and culture, social services and ministry, all sharing a common desire to improve our community and have a positive impact on the world around us.
The world needs Rotary and the ideals we represent now more than ever. The onset of the COVID 19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way we live, work and interact with one another. School-aged children that were already struggling with food insecurity and educational development are now falling even further behind. Recent acts of violence against our African American brothers and sisters highlight the fact that systemic racism continues to plague our nation. Social unrest and political division continue unabated. The world needs our leadership, and while these are extremely difficult challenges to overcome, Rotary is well-positioned to be part of the solution.
Together, we can work to open new doors and opportunities for our community and world.
