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 2023-2024 Rotary year, RI President, Gordon R. McInally, of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, Lothian, Scotland, adopted the theme “Create Hope in the World”.

As a club, we hope to bring the opportunities and hope to more people in our community through our local initiatives. We focus our attention on youth and families as they are the cornerstone of our growing community. Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders and those who will continue to do good in the world.

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

Erin Lee, President (Rotary Club of Nanaimo Oceanside 2023-2024)
