Go Forth and Serve

Governor's Message, July 2015
District 3850 Governor Oliver N. Ong

Happiness to our New Rotary Year! Make it happen!

I am happy to inherit a stronger district with a Vision to unite and harmonize us more through the years. I am blessed that our District Leaders are committed to serve as ONE to strengthen further our geographically challenged yet a Fun District. And I am fortunate that our World Class Presidents are all excited to lead their respective clubs to make this year more significant—full of action.

Go forth and serve … is our hurrah! Seize the opportunities in the 6 areas of focus to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters. They deserve better in life. Wipe away those tears and turn those weary faces into appreciative smiles is what we aim for.

You will be the light! You will be the spark! You will be the hope! While you are sharing your gifts in lifting their burdens, be assured that your District Servants will be there to help you realize your goals, in every way we can. No clubs will be left behind and all clubs will be supported, near or far.

We will serve with responsibility and dedication. Distance will be overcome with technology as it has made the world smaller and interconnected. However, if you need us to be there, we will be there.

We will engage you to ensure your success. We will be in front of you, leading the way. We will be by your side, ensuring you are on the right path. And we will be behind you, pushing you to Success! You will hear a lot from your District office!

As Ben Carson once said: “Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give.”

Let us be a Gift to the World. Make it happen!
