Join Leaders -
     Exchange Ideas -
          Take Action

These six words are the simplest way to understand Rotarians and the clubs in which they belong.  The entire Rotary essence statement is "Rotary Joins Leaders from all continents, cultures and occupations to Exchange Ideas and Take Action for communities around the world."

Whichever way you remember it, please consider joining us at our next meeting.  


"District 6690 Group Study Exchange Team "
  August 1, 2016


Members of the District GSE Team 

The 2016 Group Study Exchange Team will discuss their May 2016 trip to District 4620 located in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.  There was a total of 6 team members that participated in the program which involved dozens of cultural and vocational events across the District of 4620.  This program is a revival of the discontinued Rotary International GSE program and was directly funded by 8 clubs within District 6690.  The team is excited to share their experiences and promote the continued support for this program.

On June 27, now Past President Tricia turned the gavel and leadership of the club over to President Jack Graf.  President Jack's remarks to the club are included here.  If you missed this event, you will want to spend a minute or two reading the following remarks.  They outline our plans for this year and the future.  
Thank You and
I will be so much more grateful if you do that at the end of my presentation today.
It is a great gift that Columbus Rotary allows each incoming President to present 3 Paul Harris Fellowships at the Changing of the Guard. There have been no criteria given, no guidance offered and no pattern expected from the Club.  Therefore, I am able to follow my heart and my conscience with these presentations.
First, to my long suffering wife of many years who never receives the credit from ME that she deserves, who has over the years supported me through my involvement in civic and industry associations and without whom I could not function, I present Kay Marie Graf with today’s first and therefore the most meaningful Paul Harris Fellowship.
Second, to my daughter who without any coaching or prodding from anyone in the family including my Rotarian Father and after graduation from Denison and while beginning her teaching career at Hilliard Davidson undertook to coordinate a nascent Rotary InterACT High School Club. To me, that demonstrates her soul; so to Kate Graf Victor I present a Paul Harris Fellowship.

Third, for every Columbus Rotarian in this room and those who will be joining us during this term, I will reserve a Paul Harris Fellowship as an acknowledgement of exemplary performance in some endeavor or contest for something which the Club chooses to do in this year, JUST like we did in March Madness during President Tricia’s term. This third one’s for you.
