Each year Rotary renews itself by electing a new leadership team within each club and internationally. The incoming Rotary International (“RI”) President choses a theme, not only to guide RI’s leaders, but also to guide Rotarians around the world. For the 2021-2022 Rotary year, RI President, Shekhar Mehta, of Calcutta-Mahanagar, West Bengal, India adopted the theme “Serve to Change Lives”.

As a club, we hope to bring the opportunities to more people in our community through our local initiatives as well as our youth programs. Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders and is where our club primarily focuses our time.

I welcome you to check out our club’s activities and invite you to come by our Rotary Club of Nanaimo Oceanside meetings to say “hi” and get to see what we are all about.

Veronica Szick, President (Rotary Club of Nanaimo Oceanside 2021-2022)
