Legacy, Tradition, and Continuity
Our current, past, and future club presidents discussing club matters while enjoying a little fellowship
Hello, Fellow Rotarians, I’m Cedric Hill and it's my distinct honor to serve as the Club President for the Rotary year 2022-2023. Rotary was started in 1905 built on the vision of Paul Harris a Chicago attorney, where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful relationships. The Rotary Club of Columbus has a rich history beginning in 1915. Over the years our club has grown to nearly 300 members who continue to find ways to make our community better and stronger. With our make up of members from a full spectrum of leaders, who are postured to continue this great legacy. In the words of Paul Harris, ”whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves." As we round the corner on two plus years of a pandemic and turmoil in our nation and world as we know it, Rotary once again emerges with a revolutionary approach and design to keep us strong addressing humanitarian needs. This year's focus “Imagine Rotary” lends one to think, as ”People of Action” what we as individuals may create and what we as Rotarians and clubs across the globe may impact. To quote our incoming International President Jennifer Jones, ”if Rotary can eradicate Polio, what is it that as Rotarians we cannot eradicate." There are exciting things happening in our club and I’m very grateful that you’re a part of it. As we move into this next year with the challenges our world faces, I’d like to call us to be a club of even more action, impacting our community, nation and world with the same fierceness and intention Rotary has always exhibited. I too say welcome back to great fellowship, planning, projects and world changing concepts and ideas. Thank you for your service to Rotary! This our home club and to the community we face and serve, 'let’s make a difference in 2022-2023!”
