A message from President, Steve Koyama

Steve Koyama, President Rotary Club of Waikiki 2017-18

Aloha fellow Rotarians,

I feel truly honored and privileged to serve as your President for the 2017-2018 Rotary year!  The Club has a deep history dating back to its beginning in 1939, of having great People and Rotarians, doing wonderful things in our community and throughout the world, improving lives and bringing joy to others. It has been an honor to be a member of this Club, the Rotary Club of Waikiki.

I envision and look forward to a year full of fun, great fellowship and camaraderie, through our various meetings: our regular

Wednesday lunch meetings, club projects, socials, and special events such as our Annual International Food Fest and Golf Tournament. We are known as the ‘Friendly Club”, a special characteristic that we can all embrace. I also look forward to working together to do great things in our community and the world, and to seeing members helping and supporting each other, sharing

their knowledge, experience and expertise with each other.

Our new International President, Ian H.S. Riseley's theme for the new year is Rotary: Making a difference. I feel we all want the same thing — to make a difference, and we will work hard to that end to improve lives around us and around the world. So, through Rotary, off to work we go!

Best wishes to all of us for the New Year!

Rotary theme 2017-18

In 2017-18, we will answer the question “What is Rotary?” with the theme Rotary: Making a Difference. However each of us chooses to serve, we do it because we know our service makes a difference in the lives of others. Whether we are building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better. Whatever motivation each of us had for joining Rotary, it is the satisfaction we find in Rotary that causes us to remain, the satisfaction of knowing that week by week, year by year, we are part of Rotary: Making a Difference.

Ian H.S. Riseley
President, Rotary International, 2017-18
