The Sackville Rotary club is a vibrant and growing service club with 30 plus members, fulfilling the mission of “Service Above Self” and I am very proud to be the new President for 2018/19.   Over the past few years the club membership has grown as well as our profile within the Town of Sackville and surrounding communities.  Many people know us from the weekly cheques we issue to local community groups through our Toonie Gold Mine draw while others recognize us by our bright shirts and aprons volunteering at various events in the community. 
For a club of our size we get things done and have fun in the process - our delicious rotary breakfast, our annual Spring Bash Wine and Beer event and the annual corn boil are just a few of our events.  This year a new volunteer service committee will be actively pursuing volunteer opportunities for our Rotarians to give service to groups in our community that need assistance.  We engage and support our youth with a very active Rotaract club.  These “kids” have endless energy and are doing amazing things in our town from homework programs, volunteering at the food bank, and running school breakfast programs. Other youth involvement are the opportunities for Adventures in Citizenship, youth exchanges, weekly donations of books to local schools and libraries and annual bursaries for graduating students.  Through the Rotary Foundation we support international projects and are doing our part to work towards the collective Rotary goal of eradicating polio. 
We are a club steeped in tradition with an eye on change for the future.  We are no longer “your Father’s Rotary club” but a cross generational group of like minded women and men that believe in our town, the rotary ideals and the ability as a group to do great things.  Yes, we do meet at the insane time of 7:15am but if this is a deterrent to joining we will be having new evening social meetings once a month to attract members with varying schedules not to mention all the volunteer opportunities to feel part of our group.
The slogan for the 2018-19 Rotary International year is “Be the Inspiration”.  I have been and continue to be inspired by all the great works of the Rotary Club of Sackville.  So, if you are looking to be inspired check us out, ask a fellow Rotarian, and join in on the fun.
