Theme for the month of February 2024
Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention 
Quote of the Month 
 The words and wisdom of our founder Paul P. Harris. It is easier to interest men in war than in peace; it therefore requires more moral courage to talk peace than war (The Rotarian February 1917)
Must the best genius of men be devoted to the science of war and none to the science of averting it? (The Rotarian February 1940)
War always is a ghastly blunder; even the winners lose. (quote from his book 'My Road to Rotary')
Nothing will bring peace to our world until there is a will among human beings everywhere to make an orderly world. Anything less will be
only an armed truce. (The Rotarian May 1940)

Rotary Down Under (RDU)
The February edition of this magazine is full of interesting articles. One of the best ways to follow the world of Rotary is to have this magazine in front of you and take on board the exciting activities of various clubs.   
Stephanie A. Urchick
Rotary International President 1924-25
In this RDU you can read a brief on the incoming President's theme of 'The Magic of Rotary' where she says "I truly believe that if Rotary districts and clubs use the Action Plan, we can thrive. It's a future where there are many more Rotary members involved in service and fellowship. I have no doubt that the world of Rotary is changing. If you look at our worldwide numbers there is something like 150,000 people who come into Rotary every year, but there are 160,000 who leave. What that says to me is that some people are not finding value in their club experience. They're not really leaving Rotary; they're leaving a Rotary Club. We need to get clubs to examine what's happening.  It is amazing really that in a very short time the world of Rotary will experience the leadership of a second female President. When Stephanie was asked 'should we even be making that distinction anymore' she replied from my perspective no, it's about being the best leader for the time. Her articles in this RDU are well worth a read along with many others such as 'Peace Pole Project' and 'March Against Malaria to finish the fight.'

JUST A THOUGHT
Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs.
1. The future can be better than the present
and
2. I have the power to make it so.
