My dear committed and dedicated Rotarians
Today marks the first day in office for me as District 3310 Governor for the Rotary year 2014-15.
I want to thank IPDG Chew Ghim Bok for having led this district so superbly especially in driving the contributions to the Rotary Foundation to exceed US$1million – the first time in the history of District 3310. What an inspiring journey it has been for all of us.
As we enter the new Rotary year, please allow me to welcome all club leaders, club officers, assistant governors and district committee members who have accepted me to work with them for the Rotary year 2014-15.
I have never felt so connected and united because I can feel the strong bond of unity among many club presidents, assistant governors and district officers.
This is exemplified when many presidents-elect, assistant governors and district committee members attended the installation ceremonies of the presidents-elect of Rotary clubs across the regions. This is in addition to the constant interactions among the different chat groups in WhatsApp as far back as November 2013.
Now that all preparatory works have been completed, it is time to execute the plans that are attached with clearly defined objectives and goals.
Let us continue to do good in the world because as Rotarians, we would rather light a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness.
To the world, we are just a bunch of ordinary people. But to some people, we mean the world to them.
Join me to ‘Light Up Rotary’ with all our hearts so that together we can light up the flame of hope in the lives of the people whom we come across in our daily life.
Join me to Light Up Rotary
RI District 3310 Governor 2014-15
