Happy New Year Everyone!
To kick off this New Year, I had the opportunity to represent our Rotary District 5150 at the 133rd annual Rose Parade in Pasadena, California.  For millions of people around the world, the Rose Parade is a tradition on New Year’s Day.  And for over 40 years, Rotary International has been represented in this parade with a float that is sponsored by many Rotary districts.
While the Rose parade is a lifetime opportunity and showcases our organization throughout the world, our clubs also have this opportunity to spread the word of Rotary and bring awareness of what Rotary does in our own communities. Maybe you have a new community service project or event that you would like to showcase? Or has your club collaborated with other organizations or a new organization? While we do so much to support our communities, let’s make sure they know we are there.
We hope you had an incredible start to this new year, and we look forward to seeing you at some of our upcoming exciting events. 
Please stay safe and healthy everyone, and Happy New Year!
Yours in Rotary,
