People of Action January 2021
What holds us together are Rotary’s Core Values.
Research Professor Brene Brown describes value as a way of being or believing that we hold most important.
These are Rotary’s core values:
Fellowship – the relationships and friendships that connect us all.
Integrity – when we choose what is right to do, not necessarily what may be easy.
Diversity – all people are welcome and valued to be part of our fellowship.
Service – the actions we take to help others.
Leadership – we show our leadership when we bring people together to act in service.
Living into our values means that we do more than profess them, we practice them.   The Rotary "People of Action" Stories being shared this year in the monthly videos show how we practice them in our District.  This month we thank DGE Bob, DGN Len and Diane DGND for sharing their stories.  We thank you for your leadership!
