Foundation Trustee Chair's February message
Confucius took great pleasure from water. He said: "Great water can continuously move forward without stopping. It is so kind as to irrigate the lands everywhere it goes, yet it does not regard itself as having performed outstanding feats. It's just like virtue."

World Understanding & Peace Day
On 23 February 1905, little did Paul Harris and his three friends realise what they were starting when they met in room 711 of the Unity Building in Chicago. We have come a long way, since then, but we still have a long way to go to achieve goodwill, peace, and understanding among all people of the world.
The Board of Directors of Rotary International asks that all Rotary Clubs plan programs at your weekly meetings and take on special activities to emphasize understanding and goodwill as essential components of world peace.
February is a chance for every club to pause, plan and promote our Fourth Avenue of Service – Our continued goal for goodwill, peace, and understanding among all people of the world, as we also celebrate February as Peace & Conflict Prevention / Resolution Month.
In 1896, Paul Harris went to Chicago to practice law.  One evening, in the early 1900's, Paul went with a professional friend to his suburban home.  After dinner, as they strolled through the neighbourhood, Paul's friend introduced him to tradesmen in their stores.  This reminded Paul of his grandparent's home in New England.   "Why not have a fellowship composed of businessmen from different occupations, without restrictions of politics or religion?" he thought.
