Installation Remarks ~ Share Rotary's Treasures
Date: Jun 21, 2007
Nan Wagoner's installation remarks echoed the club's 2007-08 Theme. "When I look out at the members of this Rotary club, I am just dazzled by your talents, your accomplishments, and your LOVE - - I think I must be the luckiest person in the world to get to have each of you as part of my life! You ARE Rotary to me - - You've shared with me, been a friend to me, and showed me how to serve others by your example. I owe you so much, and it's a joy to look forward to sharing with you this year. You know, Proverbs teaches that Where there is no vision, the people perish. Rotary gives every one of us a vision of enduring human values - and these values are centered in love.

The new Rotary International President puts it better than I ever could, so I'm borrowing his words to share with you tonight: The MAGIC of Rotary is that it allows ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Rotary [lets] people like you and me reach beyond our daily lives to do, and be, something more. It allows us to open our hearts to people we might never meet and to share our love. . . [That's] because Rotary is about human beings' love for other human beings - - whoever and wherever they may be. We'll see a magic SHOW tonight, but we have the hands, and we have the hearts, to make some real magic by bringing our best game to the year ahead. Did you know that all of you who are here as part of our extended Rotary Family help us share the magic every time you join in our projects, our fellowship, our plans? And we love you for that. I know we're going to have a great time doing EXTRAORDINARY things together this year!"
