Our meeting on 14 July 2021 was the official visit of our District Governor for 2021-2022, Selwyn Foreman. DG Selwyn is a member of our neighbouring Rotary Club, the Rotary Club of Edgware and Stanmore.
DG Selwyn duly delivered the Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta’s message and theme for the next 12 months – “Serve to Change Lives”. In addition to the theme, Shekhar asks that we empower girls through education and opportunities, and that each brings a member of the public to our meetings. Shekhar hopes to get the number of Rotarians on a worldwide basis growing again.
DG Selwyn wants emphasis placed in London on mental health. His objectives include getting Rotary Clubs to Think Big, Involving Rotaract – the younger version of Rotary – in all our projects, and ensuring we have fun in all that we do.
We will have a visit from the Worshipful, the Mayor of the London Borough of Harrow Councillor Ghazanfar Ali on Wednesday 04 August 2021, when we will have a chance to discuss how we can put these priorities into action.
