JULY 2020

English Edition
RI President Holger Knaack Monthly Message
This does not seem like a time for great optimism, but it has to be. Long before Rotary was founded, the world dealt with great crises that tested humankind's ability to progress and endure. In the age of Rotary, the world has faced many more catastrophes; however, we have survived, and every step of the way, Rotary has helped the world heal.
District Governor Lisle Chase Monthly Message
My fellow Rotarians in Rotary District 7030, my wife Maggie and I bring you greetings at the commencement of this new rotary year. A Rotary year in which our President Holger Knaack has used as his theme “Rotary Opens Opportunities”. What a prophetic theme! The opportunities that are being opened right now through the extraordinary circumstances in which we are living are boundless. So through every challenge comes opportunities.
