Incoming President Paul thanked his fellow club members for the confidence reposed in him by electing him to the esteemed office of club president.

The new president went on to indicate that as Rotarians, members should all be proud that after thirty six years, the club is alive and well in Dominica and adhering to the objects of rotary which promotes among other things, service to others and high ethical standards in business and professions. He also emphasized the fact that every Rotarian should be guided by the Rotary Four Way Test which reads as follows:-

Of the things we think, say and do

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

The newly elected president continued to appeal to the members of the club that Service should be the first value of every Rotarian as reflected in the primary motto, “Service Above Self”. He stated that “as a club we have the potential to create better communities, safer and healthier communities, one project at a time”.
