Dear fellow Rotarians,
Second half of the Rotary 2018-2019 year is well underway.
We started 2019 at Suomalainen Klubi where we had the opportunity to meet our Governor, Mrs Irmeli Viherluoto-Lindström. I was glad to see so many club members present. The presentation as well as our discussions were highly valued. This meeting also created a flow of ideas regarding voluntary actions and events.
In January we have also heard about cooperation amongst parents and schools/daycare from Ulla Siimes, Director of Vanhempainliitto. We also had a great opportunity to study our own health and way of life, lead by Susanne Valkeakari, wellbeing factory oy.
I am sure the coming meeting program will be of great interest, and hope Verkkorotarians will join the meetings and visits: YLE, Defence in Finland and Steiner school in February. We then continue with visiting VTT and learning about Value Based Leadership and Entersenior (where I see a chance for cooperation) in March.
Personally, I can feel the increased amount of daylight already in my everyday actions. It brings more energy and positiveness in the daily life. I hope you also feel the early signs of spring and have a chance of enjoying the sunny crispy winter days to the full!
Yours in Rotary,
