Message from our 2023-2024 President Carol Parsons
Rotary International President, R. Gordon R. McInally’s theme for this year is to Create Hope in the World.  The goal is to restore hope – to help the world heal from destructive conflicts and, in turn, to help us achieve lasting change for ourselves.
As we begin a new Rotary year, I want us to lead the way toward possibilities far beyond our current expectations.  This is how Rotary Waterloo can bring lasting change to our community, “one restored or newly created hope at a time”. 
A significant way to bring hope is by promoting peace as well as offering hope to those affected by mental health challenges.  Rotary should be known as an organization that takes care of its members as well as the people it serves – this will be the foundation of everything we do this year.
This is the Rotary Waterloo club.  I’m proud to continue serving the club as President and am excited about the opportunities for the club in the year ahead.
If you would like to know more about the Rotary Waterloo club, join us at a club meeting or attend a special event, please contact me at
