A message from President Huang-
Dear Fellow Rotarians and Friends:
I am very pleased to welcome you to this 2014-15 District Conference. A District Conference is a wonderful opportunity for Rotarians and friends of Rotary to enjoy good fellowship, to be inspired by the formal program and the interaction with other Rotarians, and to celebrate the success of your District's many activities and initiatives. I recall the wonderful experiences Corinna and I have had at such conferences and I wish you all the best as you take advantage of this special time together.
The Chinese philosopher Confucius said, "It is better to light a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness." This is a message that I have taken to heart. Rotarians demonstrate this philosophy everyday as they carry out projects in their communities and around the world, lighting candles of hope through their actions.
My challenge to all of you this year is to Light Up Rotary by making Rotary fun, by growing our membership, by doing more and better projects, and by reaching more people with Rotary's message. Light Up Rotary is our theme for the year - but it is more than our theme. It is how we live in Rotary, how we think in Rotary, how we feel, how we work. It is how we make a difference - every day, in every club, every district, and every country where we serve.
I hope you have a wonderful time during your conference and that you leave here inspired to even greater heights of service and with a renewed commitment to the work we need to do to help Rotary grow and do even more good in the world. Please Light Up Rotary!
Gary C.K. Huang 2014-15 President
