Welcome to the web site of District 7790 of Rotary International. Whether you are a Rotarian or a visitor you will find useful information. Our District has a membership of nearly 1,800 members and 52 clubs spread out on a vast territory covering the East part of the Province of Quebec (30 clubs) and Central Maine (22 clubs). Our District is bilingual and we are proud of this. Our geographical, linguistic and cultural differences contribute to strengthening the Rotary values of our District. The highlight of the year 2014-2015 will be the visit of Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang to District 7790. The President will be with us on July 28 and 29, 2014. He wishes to meet as many Rotarians as possible. Many activities have been organized to allow Rotarians and guests to exchange with the President. This is a great way to start the year and gain momentum.
For the year 2014-2015, the theme of Rotary International will be: « Light up Rotary ». This theme is inspired by the ideas of Confucius who once said that it is better to light up a candle than to sit and curse the darkness.
With this theme President Gary C.K. Huang invites us to put forward our value of Service Above Self by sharing our services, strengthening our clubs and letting the Rotary light shine in our communities.
He is asking us to adopt a way of life and thinking that will allow us to have a real impact on the life of others every day and everywhere in the world. He is asking us to make a difference.
In order to have a greater impact I asked Rotarians of District 7790 to give an additional effort in all their endeavors and to reach excellence. When we combine our efforts with the strength of Rotary we can face any challenge. Everything becomes possible, including eradicating of polio a thing that was considered as a dream by many but that is about to become a reality. Let’s be worthy of the opportunity that is offered to us to change the life of other for the better and for the rest of their life.
