Hello District 7070 Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors and Earlyactors!  

We are halfway through the Rotary year! 

January’s Rotary theme is one of our FIVE Avenues of Service- Vocational Service!

The Object of Rotary is a philosophical statement of Rotary’s purpose and the responsibilities of Rotarians. The concept of vocational service is rooted in the Second Object, which calls on Rotarians to “encourage and foster.”

Those objectives are:

To encourage and foster high ethical standards in business and professions, to recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations, to dignify the Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society.

To apply the ideal of service in personal, business and community life.

To advance international understanding and goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of businessmen and professional men and women united in the ideal of service.

Paul Harris wrote: "Each Rotarian is a connecting link between the idealism of Rotary and their trade or profession".

Vocational Service is the way Rotary fosters and supports the application of the Ideal of Service to the pursuit of all vocations.
