Dear Fellow Rotarians,
First, I feel fortunate and honored to become president of RC Pokhara Midtown, which has been led by many veterans to heighten its public image. For me, Rotary has always been a source of motivation and inspiration for serving the community, enhancing personal skills and making professional contacts.
I am fully aware that all individual clubs across the glove have been contributing in achieving the goals of Rotary International as well as their District’s goals. As a president, I have key roles and responsibilities and I am aware that a president is a leader among equals in Rotary. My humble and polite behavior and acts in the club are crucial to motivate and inspire all club members for their active participation in club activities.
Fellowship with family focus and service project, both are our club’s strength. I take those as opportunities to make our members more motivated to improve Rotary knowledge and willingness to contribute to the foundation. Rotary’s service projects in community connect and build strong relationship and this later becomes a showcase to raise public image of Rotary.
Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, raining conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives in ways large and small for the better.
I believe that, besides many social activities, the club’s on-going global grant project in water supply and sanitation in Taalbesi, Rupa Rural Municipality and a global grant project that is going to be launched soon in school construction in Arba village, Pokhara -13 are key milestones to meet goals of RI President Mark Daniel Manoney and DG Kiran Lal Shrestha. I, along with Service Committee, will put efforts to continue at least one impactful service project for coming few years
Hosting the District Conference next year in Pokhara has brought many opportunities for our members to enhance Rotary knowledge and connect and build relationships. I on behalf of the club give my hundred percent to make the event a grand success.
At the end, I pay my deep respect to all the predecessors for their invaluable contributions to the clubs. I express my sincere gratitudes to all board members for their active roles in achieving the goals of the club. Finally yet importantly, members are those precious elements, without which the club cannot exist; hence, I duly acknowledge and salute all my beloved members for their active participation in club activities.
