‘Rotarians Are Big Hearted Distinguished Men & Women’

first_imgVice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai has described Rotarians as distinguished and exemplary world class citizens and professionals that are responsive to the critical needs of humanity.VP Boakai made the statement last week Friday at a lunch hosted by the Rotary Club of Monrovia intended to honor founding member Joseph Richards, Al Browne and Ambassador Joseph N. Boakai, Sr.He pointed that the visionary founding father of Rotary International was far back as 1905 endowed with so much urge to serve.VP Boakai reminded Rotarians and Liberians that the selfless and astute Chicago Attorney Paul P. Harris as far as back in the last century, could picture the enormous positive impact that such human bonding and drive could exact on his fellow beings in their respective communities even a century later to this day.The Liberian Vice President also noted that the ideals that attended the birth of this humanitarian organization more than 100 years ago and the embrace of its foothold in Liberia some 50 years find serene expression in the thoughtfully crafted motto.“We convene at this lunch meeting today, just as in beginnings when pioneering Rotarians – then a handful of big hearted and broad minded men- held similar regular meetings during their lunch hours on a rotational basis to plot their own service map as professionals with the urging to serve humanity,” VP Boakai asserted.VP Boakai also added that as a mark of their absolute accession to the highest of ethical standards, Rotarians carved for themselves a model guide in what they refer to as the four way test.He further stated that in aspiring to the pinnacle of ethics, Rotarians are duty bound to ask themselves in any enterprise they are set to undertake.Ambassador Boakai also explained that Rotary Clubs, like ours in this country, are noted for championing health issues, supporting hunger-fighting initiatives, providing safe and clean water in villages as well as responding to and helping rebuild when natural disasters strike.VP Boakai intimated that Rotarians rightfully designate their movement as a global network of over a million volunteers’ dedication to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.In remarks, honoree Joseph Richards urged the current generation of Rotarians concentrate their energy and time on the decentralization of programs across in order to meet the socio-economic needs of other Liberians.Rotarian Richards regretted the conspicuous absence his wife at the auspicious occasion of the Rotary Club of Monrovia’s lunch and honoring ceremony in Monrovia.Earlier, Rotary Club of Monrovia President Milton A. Weeks welcomed VP Boakai, staff, and Rotary members and guests for the lunch and honoring program.In brief statement, the Sinkor Rotary Club underscored the need for their participation in the official celebration of the 50th jubilee anniversary.Meanwhile, the Rotary Club of Monrovia was founded on January 24, 1064 by few distinguished, business and professional Liberians in an effort to buttress the Liberian Government and other support partners in the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
