Message from President Sherrin Cooper

My Fellow Rotarians,
I am honored and humbled that you have elected me to serve as President of the Rotary Club of Eleuthera for the year 2017 – 2018. Our District Governor Robert Leger has chosen as his theme GROW STRONGER – SERVE BETTER.  Although our club considered to a strong club in District 7020 because of our past accomplishments, I challenge all of you to build on what already exists as we carry out the mandate of DG Robert to Grow Stronger and Serve Better!
Rotary International President (2017 – 2018), Ian Riseley’s theme is ‘ROTARY: MAKING A DIFFERENCE.’  His goals are focused on three major priorities of the RI Strategic Plan.  They   are to support and strengthen the clubs, focus and increase humanitarian service, and to enhance Rotary’s Public Image and Awareness.

In keeping with these goals, the focus Rotary Club of Eleuthera, 2017-2018 will include:
  • Growing the club by at least 2 members
  • Promoting Training programs for new and existing members which would assist them in becoming more effective leaders.
  • Continued support to the Rotary Foundation.
  • Increase Paul Harris Fellows / Society   
  • More support of the youth clubs
  • Basic Education and Literacy programs
  • Promoting Peace and Conflict Resolution strategies in partnership with Government and Non-Government Organizations.
  • Health Care / Disease prevention  
My vision is that the Rotary Club of Eleuthera will continue to be a strong and unified organization. The club would be successful in completing a variety of service projects in our communities, including programs and activities that support the youth and young leaders, PTAs and other activities involved in youth development programs.
So, my fellow Rotarians, please join with me and keep the momentum going as we approach this new  year with a determination to grow stronger to serve betterAs we continue to support the Polio Plus Program, we will be making a difference in the world. Always remember, You are why this club is a success!
