I would like to begin by thanking the members of the Nominating Committee and General Membership for your vote of confidence in electing me to be the President of the marco Island Noontime Rotary Club.
I'm honored to take on this role and I will make every effort to continue toward the success of our club, as had done by our previous presidents.
SERVICE ABOVE SELF - that's what Rotary is all about. Rotary not only enhances the lives of those it touches but in many cases it literally saves the lives of those in need. Rotary transcends all boundaries and differences; whether they be religious, race or creed. Rotary does not discriminate. And, that is the very essence of Rotary. "The greater goal is our goal"
- Meals of Hope to feed the hungry here in Collier County,
- The Wheelchair Foundation which supplies wheelchairs to individuals in underdeveloped countries,
- Shelter Boxes which supplies shelter and all of the essentials after disasters around the world,
- Providing Eyeglasses to Mexico,
- Training Doctors to treat Clubfoot in underdeveloped Countries,
- Funding Water Projects to bring clean drinking water to underdeveloped areas.
We will continue to have our Annual Spirit of Marco Island Awards Gala that recognizes Marco Island residents who do so much for our community.
We will also join together with the Sunrise Rotary Club & Kiwanis for our Annual Seafood Festival.
We are going to have an exciting and busy year and looking forward to adding new members. We meet every Thursday at 11:45 am at Da Vinci's Restaurant.
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
Tarik Ayasun, President
Rotary Club of Marco Island (Noontime)
