OUR VISION
Our Vision:
To be a vibrant service club enriching lives and advancing global understanding.
 
Our Mission:
Friends having fun, helping others, at home and abroad.
 
Our Core Values:
Club must have ownership of ‘signature’ (large) projects.
 
Service work must do community good & benefit groups over individual(s).
 
 Activities  are fun and provide fellowship and personal satisfaction for club members.
 
Club keeps year-round calendar of activities with clearly defined start and end dates.
 
Projects should have lasting benefits (and be sustainable)
 
Activities involve maximum club membership (e.g., committees & work parties).
 
Projects must fill a void and not duplicate what others already do.
 
Members follow Rotary’s 4-Way Test in all they think, say or do.

RCPS Rotarian of the Year Award
Tahira Saeed
 
As President, I am most pleased to announce the selection of Tahira Saeed for our club’s Rotarian of the Year award for RY2020-2021.
Her selection was based on the same criteria as was used for the Rotarian of the Month recognition program, namely, the recipient exemplifies the ideals of Rotary; reliable; supportive of club activities; thoughtful of others; first to volunteer; goes well beyond the call of duty.
As I alluded to in naming Tahira as the ROM for July, she has fulfilled each criterion in spades.
First and foremost, Tahira enthusiastically stepped up to fill the critical position of Club Secretary when a vacancy occurred in late July. In addition to carrying out the demanding secretarial duties, she somehow found the time to provide yeoman service in overseeing the agenda for each of the 48 regular Tues. morning meetings, held via Zoom platform, during the Rotary Year. A major component of the latter task involved timely coordination with the 44 guests who greatly enriched our meetings this past year, comprising 27 guest speakers (15 local; 7 national; and 7 foreign), 8 Student of the Month awardees, 6 past exchange students and 1 Unsung Citizen awardee.
The Club Executive recognized from the outset that a major challenge to successfully “weather the COVID storm” would rest on membership engagement, retaining current members and attracting new ones. And to meet this overarching challenge, it would be imperative that our meetings be well-organized with a diverse slate of informative, stimulating and entertaining speakers. Judging from an amazing weekly attendance record consistently running at ~ 75% of our membership (surely one of the highest in the district), this goal was achieved. And for this accomplishment, we have Tahira to thank.
In short, Tahira represents the very embodiment of the time-honored Rotarian service-above-self motto, cheerfully and faithfully carrying out her many duties with dogged determination and quiet efficiency.
Unquestionably, Tahira Saeed is a most worthy recipient of our Club’s Rotarian of the Year award for RY 2020-2021.
