Message of RIP Shekhar – October 2021

Sekhar Metha

Dear fellow Rotarians:

Re: Theme for October 2021 – Economic and Community Development

What makes Rotary so wonderful is our ability to bridge differences in ages, geography,culture and language. Our shared values, dedication to friendship and belief in Service Above Self unite us.

We are not afraid to tackle some of the world’s most critical and widespread humanitarian issues. We vaccinate children against polio, teach young adults to read, and bring water to villages that have none. We know firsthand the impact helping our neighbors down the street or across the border can have for current and future generations.

I hope this event inspires you to create positive, lasting change in ways that will affect communities for years to come. Your support will ensure that, working together, we Serve to Change Lives.

Kindest regards,


Shekhar Mehta
Rotary International President, 2021-22
