Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary’s people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Vision Statement

Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

OUR CAUSES

Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever..

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION (DEI)

At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.

We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs.

Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.

We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong.

In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.

Jennifer Jones

President 2022-23

Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland

Jennifer is the Founder and President of Media Street Productions Inc., a 25-year-old, award-winning media company in Windsor, Ontario. She is a proud member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland.

Her talents have strengthened Rotary’s reach and impact, through many roles including as Trustee of the Rotary Foundation, RI Vice President, and co-chair of the End Polio Now: Make History Today campaign, raising funds alongside Bill and Melinda Gates and their Foundation.

Jennifer is a leader in cultivating “experiential fundraising” opportunities such as Rotary’s Polio Golf Day with Jack Nicklaus in Jupiter, Florida, USA, which raised over $5.25 million for polio eradication in one day, and the innovative, virtual COVID-19 #RotaryResponds event that raised money for COVID-19 relief projects and showcased Rotary’s response across the globe.

Working alongside political figures, celebrities and global leaders, she uses her voice to raise awareness and hundreds of millions of dollars to eradicate disease, support peace and provide clean water and sanitation in developing areas of the world. Her skill as an expert storyteller inspires hope and promise and motivates people to take action.

She has received many honors and recognitions including Rotary’s Service above Self Award and the Citation for Meritorious Service, the YMCA Peace Medallion, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and Wayne State University’s Peacemaker of the Year Award – a first for a Canadian.

Jennifer is married to Rotarian Nick Krayacich, a local family physician. They share a love for many activities including travel, cycling, golf and relaxing at their family cottage; and they share a thirst for adventure, which has included cresting the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.

 

PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE

DISTRICT 5330 GOVERNORS MESSAGE

July 2022

Welcome to Rotary Year 22-23! We have 525,600 Minutes ahead of us this upcoming year to do great things in our communities, in our district, and in our world.

I am proud to introduce our District Theme for 22-23: Make Rotary Relevant!

I ask each of you D5330 Rotarians to keep this in mind with everything you do in the name of Rotary. We need to make sure WHAT we do, HOW we do it, and WHY we do it are RELEVANT.

We need to make Rotary Relevant to our MEMBERS. We do this by hosting exciting, meaningful, and relevant projects, meetings, activities, socials, etc. By doing this, we can attract new members who want to be a part of something relevant. At the same time, it will keep engaged our current members because Rotary remains relevant to them. We need to close the back door in our clubs. We cannot add six while losing eight. We need to keep all of our members engaged and not losing interest in Rotary by making our club Relevant to them.

We need to make Rotary Relevant to our Community. We need to find out what our community needs and try to help them. If we don’t know what they need, we should ask them. Maybe conduct a Community Assessment? Once we understand  their needs, then let’s help address those needs. Let’s focus on what is important. Let’s put our effort into those  projects and activities that are most relevant to our community. Let’s be a great community partner that people take notice of and say Rotary is Relevant to our Community.

We need to make Rotary Relevant to our Partners. We work with a lot of great groups and organizations in our community to get the job done. We interact with many other service organizations, businesses, and community leaders. They turn to us because for 117 years we have been People of Action. Let’s be the strong partner. The one that gets things done. The one that other organizations want to work with. If there is a tough project out there, people turn to Rotarians to get the job done right.

We need to make Rotary Relevant to Ourselves. We, as Rotarians, invest a lot of time and effort in the name of Rotary. We make that choice. It is like discretionary income. After you pay your bills, you have so much money left and you chose how you will spend it. Maybe go out to dinner, a movie, a ball game, or a concert. You chose. The same is true of our discretionary time. We only have so much of it. And there are so many options on how to spend our time. We need to create the Rotary that fills our hearts and brings us satisfaction that we are making a difference in our community and the world beyond. And, a difference in Ourselves. Let us be proud of our investment of time and effort into this relevant organization.

I ask you to join me this Rotary Year and let’s make D5330 and Rotary Relevant!

Don Casper
District Governor
