"Imagine a world that deserves our best, where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference."

02/03/2022

The annual theme is introduced by the incoming President-Elect of Rotary International at the International Assembly.

It's at this time of year that the ANNUAL THEME is introduced by the incoming President Elect of Rotary International at the International Assembly.

It will be announced virtually by RIPE Jennifer Jones on January 20.

Here is a brief history of the annual themes.

In 1955, RI President A.Z. Baker announced a theme, "Develop Our Resources," to serve as Rotary's program of emphasis. Since that time, each president has issued a theme for his Rotary year. The shortest theme was in 1961-62 when Joseph Abey selected "Act." Other one-word themes were chosen in 1958-1959 by Charles Tennent ("Serve") and 1968 - 1969 by Kiyoshi Togasaki ("Participate").

Carl Miller, in 1963 - 1964, had a theme for the times when he proposed "Guidelines for Rotary in the Space Age." Other "timely" themes were in 1980-81 when Rolf Klärich created "Take Time to Serve"

William Carter in 1973 - 1974 used "Time for Action." Two themes have a similarity to commercial advertising: "A Better World Through Rotary" (Richard Evans, 1966 - 67) and "Reach Out" (Clem Renouf, 1978 - 1979). Bridges have been a striking metaphor. Harold Thomas, 1959 - 60, urged Rotarians to "Build Bridges of Friendship"; William Walk, 1970 - 71, created "Bridge the Gap"; and Hiroji Mukasa, 1982 - 1983, declared "Mankind is One-Build Bridges of Friendship Throughout the World."

A worldwide focus was given by Stan McCaffrey in 1981 - 1982 with the message, "World Understanding and Peace Through Rotary," and again in 1984-85 by Carlos Canseco who urged Rotarians to "Discover a New World of Service." In other years, the individual was emphasized, as "You Are Rotary" (Edd McLaughlin, 1960 - 61), "Goodwill Begins With You" (Ernst Breitholtz, 1971 - 1972) and "You Are the Key" (Ed Cadman, 1985 - 1986).

Frequently the theme urges Rotarians to become more involved in their club, such as "Share Rotary-Serve People" (Bill Skelton, 1983 - 84) or "Make Your Rotary Membership Effective" (Luther Hodges, 1967 - 1968). But whether you "Review and Renew," "Take a New Look," "Let Service Light the Way" or "Dignify the Human Being," it is clear that the RI president provides Rotarians with an important annual program of emphasis.

In 1986-87, President M.A.T. Caparas selected the inspiring message that "Rotary Brings Hope."

Charles Keller in 1987 - 1988 saw "Rotarians-United in Service, Dedicated to Peace," while Royce Abbey asked his fellow members in 1988 - 1989 to "Put Life into Rotary-Your Life." Hugh Archer (1989 - 1990) urged us to "Enjoy Rotary!" and Paulo Costa (1990 - 1991) asked that we "Honor Rotary with Faith and Enthusiasm." My predecessor Raja Saboo (1991 - 1992) exhorted every Rotarian to "Look Beyond Yourself." In 1992 - 1993, I reminded Rotarians, "Real Happiness Is Helping Others," and in 1993 - 1994, Bob Barth counseled Rotarians, "Believe In What You Do and Do What You Believe In." In 1994 - 1995, Bill Huntley encouraged Rotarians to "Be A Friend" to their communities.

With great interest, I look forward to seeing the new theme announced.

Our club projects include the Rotary Service areas of: Community Service, International Service, Club Service, Vocational Service, and New Generations/Youth. We select our service projects based on the needs of our community, both locally and abroad. We focus on projects relating to health, hunger, peace and conflict resolution, education, environmental concerns, literacy and vocational assistance, drug abuse and assisting senior citizens and young people.

Our members build life-long friendships through fellowship, and obtain personal fulfillment through providing volunteer service to others.

LOCAL COMMUNITY:

Our club sponsors the ROTARY TIMES TV broadcast - Two ½-hour programs taped every month featuring guests from the community, as well as Rotarians from in and out of our District. (more info and sample shows at: http://rkhayes.com/Rotary/Rotary%20Times/Rotary%20Times%20TV.htm. )


The Rotary Times TV Show is aired on COX Fairfax Public Access Cable Channel 10 at these times. Topic Program: 1st Monday @7:00 AM, 1st Friday @8:00 PM, 1st Saturday @4:00 PM. Topic #2 Program: 2nd Monday @ 7:00 AM, 2nd Friday @ 8:00 PM, 2nd Saturday @4:00 PM


Our club participates in several activities both in the immediate Community and at the Rotary District level. In Rotary Year 2009/10, we partnered with other local Rotary Clubs for a District Simplified Grant to improve reading and math lliteracy for underserved youth in Fairfax County. Our grant provided online access to the award-winning CALS (Computer Assisted Learning Solution) program.

One of our main focus is on Youth (now called New Generations avenue of service). Our Rotary District sponsors competitions for schools within the District, and our Club has always been a part of that. We regularly sponsor students in these District competitions:
- Speech & Music Contests (local high school students)
- Essay Contests (local middle school students).

The Bishop O'Connell High School Interact Club is sponsored by the Falls Church Rotary Club, and we are sponsoring a new Interact Club starting Sept. 2010 at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology.

Our club also sponsors academic scholarships such as:
- Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) - awards leadership camp scholarships to local students).
Youth Exchange Student (selected students offered the opportunity to study abroad. They get to choose one of three countries).
- Group Study Exchange (young adults participate in exchange visits to different countries each year).
World Peace Scholar (nominated student selected by Rotary International to study abroad).
- Ambassadorial Scholar (nominated student selected by Rotary International to study in selected foreign country.)

We sponsored 2l ocal high school students for the summer 2010 Chesapeake Bay Conference, which is a project of the Rotary Club of Gloucester VA.
