Fellow Rotarians,

“In the promotion of international understanding and goodwill, one must remember it’s important to reach as large numbers as possible-non-Rotarians as well as Rotarians-and one cannot reach large numbers privately.” 
- Peregrinations, Vol II



RI President's Message - January 2019


Vocational service can be hard to define, but it is easy to describe: It is simply the point where our Rotary lives and our professional lives intersect. When we put our Rotary ideals to work through our work, that is vocational service.


Fellow Rotarians,

This month is significant for many reasons, because it is the month that we celebrate Family month and also focus on our cause “Disease Prevention & Treatment”.

It also represents a time of great celebration that many will not be able to afford and challenges our belief in giving and generousity.

The late Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of Great Britain once said:

“We make a living by what we get.
We make a life by what we give”


RI President's Message - August 2018

A well-known saying goes, "If you want to change the world, go home and love your family." That doesn't mean people should ignore the needs outside their own homes; instead, they should pay attention to the needs within.

It can be tempting, when our priority is service, to focus only on the things that look like service: the projects, the planning, the work that yields a visible benefit to those who need it. But to do that work effectively, we need to keep our own house in order. In Rotary, that means conducting ourselves in accordance with the principles of Rotary, treating others with respect, and following The Four-Way Test. It means maximizing our impact by planning carefully and stewarding our resources wisely. And it means looking after the long-term health of our organization by ensuring that our membership is strong, engaged, and healthy.

Our membership has hovered around the same 1.2 million mark for 20 years. We aren't growing, and our membership is getting older. We have too many clubs that don't have the knowledge or motivation to have an impact: clubs that don't know what we're doing on a global level, clubs that don't know about our programs or our Foundation, that don't even know how to get involved. And with a membership that is still mostly male, we clearly aren't doing enough to become the organization of choice for women who are seeking to serve.

We are a membership organization first. If we want to achieve the goals we've set for ourselves, we need to put membership first. All of us have a responsibility to take membership seriously, not only by inviting prospective members, but also by making sure new members are welcomed into clubs that offer them something of value. If you see someone walk into a meeting and hesitate, be sure that person has a place to sit and is part of the conversation. If you're enthusiastic about a Rotary program, make sure your club knows about it and knows how to get involved. If you see a need in your community, talk about it at this week's meeting. If we want to be part of an organization that's strong, that's active, that's having an impact – start at home, and Be the Inspiration in Rotary.

Barry Rassin
President 2018-19



Dear 7020 Rotarians,

Our beloved Rotary provides us with an array of resources that ensures that our service to humanity, not only makes a difference but inspires those that we serve.

In September, Rotarians place emphasis on the importance and value of basic education, literacy and our young generation.

In the words of Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai:

“One Child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world” 

Our weekly meeting will commence celebrations with a FRESH CONCH SALAD TRUCK and BACKYARD BARBECUE! Come celebrate with us!

About 50 Youth Club Members, Rotarians and parents participate the first annual Rotary Club Road to Peace Walk/Run.  I was such an exciting event!. It began with exercise/warm-ups and presentation of our two newest EarlyAct Clubs (Emma Cooper and Governor's Harbour Primary Schools) with their club banners by RCE Director of youth Rotarian Juanita Pinder and Sherrin Cooper. The energetic group departed Police Headquarters for the Governor's Harbour Primary school promptly at 6:30am.

CP Shaun Ingraham, COE One Eleuthera Foundation along with President Sherrin Cooper presented the President of the Governor's Harbour Primary School EarlyAct President Jade Thompson and her School Principal Mrs. Tanya Pinder with the International Peace Flag.  CP Shaun addressed the young people with focus on the Five Peace Actions that define world citizen

  5. BE a responsible citizen of the world

The OEF and Rotary Club had made a commitment to establish Peace sites at all of the

The event was organized by newly appointed Road to Peace member Rotarian Jacquie Gibson

The Rotaract Club of Eleuthera hosted its first Rotaract Roundtrip where they invited Rotaractors from all over the world to spend 7 days on the island of Eleuthera. This kind of exchange was the first of its kind for the Bahamas as well as Rotary District (7020) at large.
Three lucky Rotaractors, Alexandre, Franziska and Areli were selected from France, Germany and Mexico, respectively, to share in the Eleuthera experience.  On arrival, the Rotaractors were formally welcomed with a reception at Charter President Shaun and President Elect Sandra Ingraham’s home. Great music, food and fellowship were the order of the night. Once the Rotaractors received their island style welcome, the remainder of the week was set
for touring and fun.
While the trip was meant to be touristic, the guest Rotaractors were still given the opportunity to foster the Rotary spirit by participating in a community service project in Tarpum Bay as well as volunteering at The Centre for Training and Innovation by rendering their service in their respective areas of expertise.
Alexandre, Franziska, Areli and host Rotaractors topped off the week with a celebration at Rotarian Julian Carey’s (the king of fellowship) home, where at evening’s end they were gifted with handmade local gifts to take back home to their respective countries.

Rotary Club of Eleuthera extends congratulations to Past President of the Interact Club of Central Eleuthera High School, Tiara Bethel on her graduation from the University of Tampa.  We are so proud of her!
