The Rotary Club of Lake Conroe’s President Elect Robert Morrison, often an stylish and informed speaker, recently advised the club about his Pets practical experience, which was stuffed with journey. Here’s the scoop from the club’s summary of his speak.

“Robert effectively navigated I-45 for the duration of the shutdown caused by the ice storms of early March, arriving in Metroplex Dallas for the yearly President Elect Schooling Seminar (Pets) about 4 several hours just after leaving Montgomery County. No vehicles traveling in direction of him gave a clue as to how seriously the highways had been shut down.

3 compact days of powerful but educational seminars answered a lot of issues he experienced about his new job as our club’s president (July 1), but he admitted quickly that it also opened his eyes as to the need to educate all Rotarians and non-Rotarians about the purpose of Rotary and how we really do serve our communities “above self.” Robert is arranging his objectives and aims for the coming calendar year, and he will be having our volunteer spirits channeled to observe Rotary Intercontinental President Jennifer Jones’ topic for 2022-23, ‘Imagine Rotary’.”

All of our president-elects have comparable stories about their March weekend at Pets and we know their experiences will inspire and infuse their management yr. We would like them all a 12 months of great creativeness and inspiration.
