Rotary Fellowship Month 

Dear Rotarians,
As we enter the month of June, we have the wonderful opportunity to celebrate Rotary Fellowship Month. This special time reminds us of the importance of camaraderie and the enduring friendships that are at the heart of our Rotary experience.
Rotary Fellowships play a vital role in enhancing our Rotary journey by connecting us with fellow members who share similar interests, hobbies, and professional backgrounds. These fellowships provide a platform for us to build lasting relationships, share knowledge, and collaborate on projects that make a positive impact in our communities and beyond.
I recently had attended the RI Convention in Singapore. The district was very well represented by Rotarians of our Clubs. The convention was attended by about 14000 Rotarians from all over the world. The convention was for 5 days in the end of May with Opening and Closing Ceremonies celebrating the Singapore city who hosted the convention. 
The Rotarian and community leaders facilitated breakout sessions on different areas of Focus in Rotary. The opportunity helped to motivate Rotarians for Eradication of Polio from the world and encouraging more to donate to The Rotary Foundation.
The RI Convention main emphasis was on celebrating the Rotary Fellowship
Here are a few ways we can celebrate Rotary Fellowship Month and strengthen our bonds within our Rotary family:
1.Join or Start a Fellowship: Explore the various Rotary Fellowships available and consider joining one that aligns with your interests. If you have a passion or hobby that is not yet represented, consider starting a new fellowship and inviting others to join you.
2.Host a Fellowship Event: Organize events or gatherings for members of your Rotary Fellowship. These events can be virtual or in-person, and they provide an excellent opportunity to connect, share experiences, and plan future activities together.
3.Promote Fellowships within Your Club: Encourage your club members to participate in Rotary Fellowships. Share information about different fellowships during club meetings, through newsletters, and on social media to raise awareness and inspire involvement.
4.Collaborate on Service Projects: Use your fellowship connections to collaborate on service projects that address pressing needs in your community or globally. Working together with fellow Rotarians who share your passions can amplify your impact and create meaningful change.
5.Celebrate and Recognize Contributions: Take time to celebrate the achievements and contributions of fellow Rotarians who actively participate in fellowships. Recognize their efforts and highlight the positive impact of fellowship activities within your club and district.
Rotary Fellowship Month is a time to reflect on the value of the friendships we have formed through Rotary and to celebrate the diverse interests and talents that bring us together. By embracing fellowship, we strengthen our connections, enhance our Rotary experience, and further our mission of service above self.
Thank you for your dedication to Rotary and for being a vital part of our global fellowship. Let's take this month to celebrate the joy of Rotary fellowship and the incredible bonds that unite us as a district.
Yours in Rotary,
