At our meeting yesterday, we had the honor and pleasure of a visit from our District Governor, Savi Bhrim. She gave a very fascinating talk on some of the early history of Rotary. For example, did you know this? During and after World War II, Rotarians became increasingly involved in promoting international understanding. In 1945, 49 Rotary members served in 29 delegations to the United Nations Charter Conference. Rotary still actively participates in UN conferences by sending observers to major meetings and promoting the United Nations in Rotary publications.
Governor Bhim acknowledged many of the accomplishments of our club. She appreciates the fact that we partner with students from the Nipomo High School Drama Club. Specifically, our recent fundraiser, Winner Winner Tri-tip Dinner, wherein we jointly raised about $25,000 that we split with the Drama Club.
When watching and listening to Governor Bhim speak, her passion for Rotary is just so very obvious. Especially when she speaks about the 4-way test. Her perspective is that the 4-way test should be "self-reflective" questions we always ask ourselves before speaking and acting. It can be a very powerful tool for self correcting. (
Thank you Governor Bhim for visiting our club. You are always welcome at the Rotary Club of Nipomo! See pictures below of Governor Bhim and our president, Kelly Ricker.
