We had a very interesting meeting at our International Service Division on June 16 when our guest speaker was His Excellency Archbishop Celestino Migliore, who is Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations. He delivered an excellent speech about “The Holy See in the International Arena”. We are fortunate to have a copy of Archbishop Migliore’s speech. You can read it on our website at www.nyrotary.org/int_service_div/holy_see.pdf.

Many Rotarians asked me why I decided to resign. My response is that the spirit of Rotary is to rotate our duties. After having done this assignment for three and a half years, it is time to let someone else take over. It is not easy to find someone with the special skills required to manage a website and handle Internet Communications. We are fortunate in our Rotary Club to have enrolled a new member last year with these skills. His name is Nick Uresin and his classification is E-Business Software. Nick is not only willing to take over my duties. He has also declared that he wants to bring our website to the next level. That is the right spirit for the future! Good luck Nick!
My Rotary assignment for the next year will be as Chairman of Rotary’s Global History Fellowship. It is authorized by Rotary International with Rotarians from around the world as members. Its 1,300 page website at www.RotaryHistoryFellowship.org has more than 2,000 articles about the history of Rotary, which makes it the biggest Internet resource about Rotary history. It is visited every month by 35,000 Rotarians from all over the world. I look forward to the challenge of leading this organization.
I plan to
write newsletters for Rotary’s Global History Fellowship, so I am not
disappearing completely. The difference will be that instead of informing about

We are the ones, who build houses for the homeless to live in.
We drill water wells for other people to drink from.
We feed hungry people in our hometowns.
We vaccinate children against polio.
We are 1.3 million souls around the world from many nationalities, races and religions.
We meet every week in fellowship, camaraderie and service at 31,000 different clubs.
Whenever we visit any of these clubs - even if we have never been there before - we are always welcome as friends, because we are the Rotarians.
God bless us all!
