From Our 2016-2017 President John Kepner
Our club was established in 1989, and has been a vital part of our community. Our impact starts with our members–people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities toughest challenges. Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and the Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world. Rotary is led by our members– responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.
Our theme for 2016-2017 is “Rotary Serving Humanity”. Additionally, 2017 is the 100th year celebration of the Rotary Foundation. It is a big year for Rotary with the celebration starting July 1, 2016, and it will culminate at the International Convention in Atlanta, GA, on June 10-14, 2017. We have a unique opportunity to attend an International Convention in our own backyard.
I am proud to serve as the 2016-2017 North Mecklenburg Rotary Club President, and I’m excited to be a part of a wonderful club.
If you have never visited our Rotary club, please come have lunch with us, on us, on Wednesdays from noon – 1:15, at The Peninsula Club in Cornelius NC. Let us introduce you to one of the greatest organizations in the world.
Yours in Rotary Service,
President, Rotary Club of North Mecklenburg County, 2016-2017
