District Governor’s Mesage for August
My Family of Rotary:
It was with profound sadness that we lost our Rotary
International President Elect Sam Frobisher Owori.
Sam passed on unexpectedly of post-surgery
complications in a USA hospital. This was indeed a
painful blow and tragic loss for the family, Rotary
Fraternity and Friends. Thank you my family of Rotary
for the honor you gave to our beloved Sam F. Owori.
We shall all remember that Sam was the epitome of
Rotary and his exemplary service got him elected to
the highest office in Rotary, making him the second
African to hold this position. I was privy to some of
the great plans that he was preparing for his year of
service 2018-2019 but sadly he has gone before
executing them. However, while his sudden departure has had a paralyzing effect, we are thankful that
we shared some of his 40 years of Rotary service.
Good men must pass on but death cannot kill their
good names. The only way we can honor Sam is to
emulate the values and ideals that he held dearly.
Sam’s loss brought out so many people who commited themselves to join Rotary. It is our role to follow
them up and recruit them during this month of
membership. My thoughts and prayers are with
Norah, the Owori family, members of Rotary
Club of Kampala where Sam was a member as well as
all members of the Rotary fraternity in District D9211,
Africa and the World over. We will miss Sam
dearly. The first month of our green Rotary year is
done. Thank you for having made a difference in your
respective communities. In the last month I visited
over 20 clubs and also interacted with the Rotaractors
and Interactors. I made a decision to continue with
Club Visits at the time of Sam F. Owori's death to
honor him. Sam would have wanted us to continue
the good job he did in the 40 years of dedicated
service to the good causes of Rotary. One month into
our Rotary year and we are in August designated
for Membership Recruitment and Club Development.
As District Governor one of my roles is to encourage
clubs increase membership throughout our district. I
do not believe in growth for the sake of growth but as
a part of a strategic plan to do more in our communities and in our world. I am asked by Rotarians on how
we can find and keep members in our clubs. It seems
that the weekly meeting is becoming a hurdle to
meeting is becoming a hurdle to members. What I
want to emphasize is that we are living in the “now”
generation where we all want to leave our options
open and don’t want to commit to atiending a meeting every week. Though there is some truth to this,
most people just want to know there is value in the
way they spend their time. It is important that our
meetings are fun, informative and meaningful. This
is not just the responsibility of the Club President but
all Rotarians in the club. We need great programs and
fun events.I believe that we need to take away the
excuses not to join Rotary. One great example of this
is allowing small children to atend your meetings
weekly. Young parents may not be able to afford
child care so they can atend meetings. If you make it
so that childcare is available during the meeting or
give these kids something to do during that hour you
might see a big increase in the younger members.
Use Facebook and other social media to advertise
programs and special events. Not only do you remind
your members of the meeting but some of the folks
that normally would skip a meeting might see an
interesting program coming up and stop in. The
botom line is that we can make even more amazing
things happen with more members! We need to
constantly be asking our friends, neighbors, co-workers and perfect strangers to join with us in our
atempt to make the world a much better place.
So as you go through this month ask those you know
well or barely know if they would like to hang out
with you for an hour, leting them know that joining
us and our awesome organization will be the best
decision they will ever make! Recruit many members
as possible to have strong clubs in order to deliver
services to the community.
I promise to give you all the necessary help you need
- let us bring back our environment by planting trees
massively to embrace Mission Green.
Fellow Rotarians, we have to go to Toronto.
Let us support Norah’s call for all of us to be in Toronto to celebrate Sam’s life. So go forth, find great new
members and invite them to be a part of our organization.
