District Governor-Elect Carlos Frum filed this report Monday from San Diego:


I am pleased to inform you that earlier today, RI President-Elect Kalyan Banerjee announced the 2011-2012 theme," Reach Within to Embrace Humanity.

The theme announcement was made during the opening plenary session of the International Assembly, the annual training event in San Diego for incoming district governors.  

In explaining how he came to choose the theme, President-Elect Kalyan said: "In order to achieve anything in this world, a person has to use all the resources he can draw on. And the only place to start is with ourselves, and within ourselves. Once Rotarians find their inner strength they can accomplish great things in their communities and around the world." 

Go to the Rotary International website to learn more, and to see the new logo. I look forward to working with you during 2011 -2012 to improve and rejuvenate Rotary.   

Yours in Rotary Service,


Carlos Früm
