Family is really important to Rotarians.  Family members offer us so much support when we are helping out in our communities.  They are also often the inspiration for us to become involved in Rotary.  Our young people have often had the opportunities that we would like to offer to others. Many of us recognise that we have been somewhat fortunate in life in the main and would like to help others who have been in circumstances that are not so fortunate.
At the same time many of us have experienced difficult and sad times with close family members and often others are unaware of the difficulties we have been going through.  Nonetheless, as Rotarians we still help youth out of poverty, provide them with literacy, give them opportunities to make our world a better place and support research institutes that are searching for treatments for diseases such as cystic fibrosis, cancer and multiple sclerosis.
I would like to introduce you to Denise and our family of six children and their partners (see the photo above) - and there is now one grandchild as well.
Enjoy your families and make sure they benefit from the friendship and satisfaction we get in Rotary serving our communities with like-minded people.
