A Reflective Moment

Program: The Importance of Service
Rotary is founded upon service to others, so take a moment to consider your current commitment to service, as well as what service goals you can set for yourself. Service is all about giving freely of yourself, without the thought of a corresponding taking. How do you give freely? Never hesitate to help and serve others. Work tirelessly to improve the community in which you live, performing service for volunteer organizations and serving on boards. Give freely of yourself at work too. Sacrifice. When something has to be given up, volunteer. Simply put, be the ultimate team player. You will be a better person, a better Rotarian, and you will feel better in the process. Don’t know where to start? It’s easy. Begin with your local Rotary Club or Mountain State Rotary E-Club. You can serve your club, your local community, or the international community. And, if you are uncertain about what skills you bring to the table, start by thinking about how what you do for a living and can be used to serve in other areas as well. Vocational service is a very important part of Rotary. Check out this short video for more on vocational service.
