In the Rotary world February is Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention Month. How great is it to be part of an organization that is recognized around the world as one that treasures and promotes peace among all nations and peoples of the earth! And, our District takes this seriously. We make a significant contribution from our District Designated Funds to the Rotary Peace Centers each and every year. And, we often send Global Scholars to study for advanced degrees in peace and conflict prevention and resolution.
In addition, many of our clubs are involved in humanitarian efforts that have delivered, as a collateral impact, goodwill and understanding that leads to more peaceful communities. Never forget the importance of what we do and that it can have a lasting impact on peace.
Who do you know that can help us increase this impact? It might be your neighbor. Invite them to join us on this journey!
Have a great February! And remember, “Rotary Connects the World!”
