For 115 years Rotary has lived through every disaster, every catastrophe, every calamity that the world has seen. Now we face the Coronavirus, an unknown, unseen enemy that has brought the entire world to its feet. Once again, unprecedented as social distancing has become the order of the day.
This is a huge blow to Rotary, an organization that thrives on personal interactions and social gatherings. Yet once again, Rotarians are rising to the challenges as we explore new ways to connect and to be of service. Through the years we took advantage of the unique opportunities that manifested because of these disasters and each time we left the world a better place. We will do the same this time around. 
This too shall pass and we will tell stories in years to come how we lived through this historic time and how we left the world a better place.
