Holiday Message from Governor Ade

Fellow Rotarians,

Once again, we come to this festive season of celebrations. A time to reflect and celebrate with family, friends, colleagues, and charitable organizations that we partner with and support. It’s been a pleasure visiting you at your club, and I am grateful to have the honor of serving with you. In the words of Tao Te Ching, ‘the heart that gives, gathers.’ May we continue to harvest good things that are beneficial to all. Thank you for your gift of humanitarian service. 

May the holidays keep you in happy spirits, Rotarians! Looking forward to continuing our Rotary theme of Imagining Rotary in the coming year.

My warmest wishes for a safe and peaceful holiday season. Happy New Year! 

Ade Onayemi
