Dr. Surendra Joshi
President 2018-19
Rotary Club of Patan Durbar Square

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

My wife Lelina joins me in congratulating you and your team for assuming a responsible position of a club president for the year 2018/19. In the mean time we would like to congratulate outgoing President and his team for wonderful work they have done for the community and the club for the year 2017/18 and successfully completing their assignments.

Friends, Rotary, a renowned international humanitarian organization today, started with fellowship. With the passage of time service was considered as its value. Today service is considered as prime core value and fellowship, diversity, Integrity and leadership as other important core value of Rotary. Since what Rotary’s Image today is because Rotarians around the world practice these values in their daily life, it’s our responsibility to promote and practice these values in our communities and within ourselves.

As a Rotarian we understand the importance of working together and its scope which knows no limits of achievement.

Rotary always believes in action and in a team work obtaining first hand response from those whom we work with and with those who we works for is an essential part for making the teamwork more effective. Hence “Reach out “ will be our priority for the year 2018/19 in RI District 3292.

Relevance of Rotary is ever increasing and it’s even greater in our area. We have numerous expectations and needs in the clubs, communities and many untouched areas in the field of, – disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, basic education and literacy, economic and community development and peace and conflict resolution. We need to work hard to use Rotary network, our experience and 360 degree “ Reach-out “ to inspire, explore, invent, connect, serve and set the example for positive change that benefits the communities in all those areas. Our belief as a Rotarian is that a genuine desire to serve above self and a persistence efforts will surely take us to our goal and “be the inspiration.

I urge president and club officials of your club to be prepared for making some sacrifices in term of your time, treasure and talent as the key player of Team 2018/19 because the joy of achieving your goal will be well worth the sacrifices. Let us use these wisdom as prioritized by Rotary International in- supporting and strengthening Clubs, focus on and increasing humanitarian services, enhancing public image and awareness of Rotary, and thus inspiring a positive change.

Let us “Be The Inspiration”.

Thank you and best wishes.

Yours in Rotary
Chintamani Bhattarai
District Governor (2018/19)
