A word from President Jay Lickus……..
 
It’s a new year at the Rotary Club of Surprise and I would like to bid you a warm welcome to our club website. I am glad you stopped by to see what we are all about.

The Rotary Club of Surprise was founded February 23rd, 1991 originally known as the Surprise Bell Grand Rotary Club. Our sponsor club was the Sun City Del Sol Rotary Club.  Lots has happened, lots has changed but our club continues to grow in size and in service every year.
 
We have grown to over 50 members and our membership is an evolving tapestry of diverse backgrounds, histories and stories ……Successful business owners, community advocates and local political leaders, young and aggressive entrepreneurs, experienced and seasoned retirees, volunteers and good, passionate people.
 
Since you are here, I already ready know we share something wonderful in common.  We both have an innate desire to do good in our community and world and are searching for a way to fuel that passion  

5 benefits we have to offer, in a nutshell:
  • The ability and resources to change the world both locally and globally.
  • An opportunity to create and build life long relationships with people just like ourselves…business and community leaders with the drive to make a difference.
  • High ethical standards in business and professions.
  • The sharing of the ideal of “service above self” in your personal, business, and community life.
  • A fun and wholesome platform for social interaction and meeting new friends.
       One year ago, our Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new vision statement,
       reflecting the aspirations for our organization and its future. It reads:
 
 “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
 
That simple sentence distills so much of what is essential about Rotary. We unite, because we know that we are far stronger together than we could ever be alone. We take action, because we are not dreamers, but doers. We work to create lasting change that will endure long after our involvement has ended – across the globe and in our communities. And perhaps most important of all, we work to create change in ourselves – not just building a better world around us but becoming better people ourselves.

Thanks to all of you ahead of time for your willingness to give.  I am forever impressed by tour club and the individuals in it who collectively walk forward hand in hand to talk together, laugh together and work together to accomplish so much in the city of Surprise.
We are always working to raise more money for scholarships, youth projects, community projects, food for the needy and international projects to address polio, hunger, education, clean water.  Amazing!!  The Rotary Club of Surprise Rocks!! 
All I can say as my tenure as President begins is hold on to your horses as we start another exciting year full of new ideas and great projects.  I hope I can keep up!
