It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you into our Rotary wheel which faces inward for friendship and fellowship and outward in service to our community and to the world.

I am proud to be a Rotarian!!! I am most honored and humbled to be elected President of the Princeton Rotary Club.  With the help and support of the Board members and fellow Club members, I will do my best to meet the challenge.  The Princeton Rotary Club has been built on a strong leadership foundation, and I am fortunate to have club members fully committed to the Rotary ideal of service above self.  Our members continue to go the extra mile in building the club and carrying out the many worthwhile projects that are undertaken to benefit our community.

There are many people and organizations locally and around the world whose only hope will come from Rotary.  By working together, we can give hope to those in need and improve so many lives in our community and around the world. Rotarians believe it is not good enough to give only what we can spare but give all we can to support the ideals of Rotary.

Our compassion and our ability to open our hearts to those in need combined with our commitment to share our time, talent, and treasures with those who are less fortunate is what causes ordinary Rotarians such as ourselves to do the extraordinary things that we do.  It’s what makes Rotary so magical.

So, over the course of the next Rotary year please join me in creating some magic, and by working together to accomplish our mission may we also “Create Hope in the World.”

Joe Park, President
