Rotary provides many opportunities for local and international service. Meaningful community service is born out of a passion for humanity. As Rotarians, we must never take our position to serve for granted. The world needs individuals that are willing to give a helping hand and keep burning issues of civil injustice, business and economic development and environmental concerns at the forefront. Through weekly luncheons and fellowships with members of the business, civic and academic fields we are in a position to make a difference and change lives for the better. There is hope for our community as long as caring individuals are willing to serve.
Throughout my term on the Board of Directors and as Club President, I have worked to spark our interest in public affairs that will motivate us to produce positive change for the community we serve. It has been an honor to serve as President of the Rotary Club of Madison. I look forward to an effective and prosperous new century for our club and a wonderful fresh beginning from our highly competent and visionary President Renee Moe.
Yours In Service, Wes Sparkman, Club President, 2012-13
