Dear fellow Rotarians, family and friends of the Rotary Club of Victoria-Harbourside.
The Rotary club of Victoria-Harbourside was chartered in the fall 1980, so welcome to our 40th year.
Today we are a diverse club of impassioned individuals, part of an international organization of over 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries.   Over 1.2 million men and women have seen the power of community, transform lives, locally and globally, creating lasting positive change. 
As COVID-19’s global restrictions closed borders, roads and doors to opportunity, Rotarians reacted with courage vision and action finding new ways to solve old problems.  In united resolve, we will continue to overcome the challenges that such a pandemic besets on our world. The roads to success are uncertain, and rarely straight. Many pathways have yet to be mapped but therein lays opportunity for new discoveries. 
This year the Rotary International theme is; “Rotary opens opportunities”. 
Join me on the journey to discover new roads and pathways that will lead us together, to open the doors of opportunity. 
Together, we will improve the lives of those in need. 
Together we have the capacity to create positive lasting change. 
Together, here and away, we will open doors and open opportunities to serve like never before!
Angus MacPherson
