Past RI Presidents & Themes

All years are the starting year of a presidents term. In the years between 1949 and 1956 there wasn't a theme as we know them today. Instead, each president had a number of objectives or goals.

1949 Percy C. Hodgson

  1. Each new member admitted into a Rotary club to be adequately informed about his duties and obligations.
  2. A better understanding and application of the principles of Vocational Service as set forth in SERVICE IS MY BUSINESS.
  3. A contribution to world understanding and peace through an intensification of our international service.
  4. An outstanding district conference in every district.

1950 Arthur Lagueux

  1. In club service we must beget our heirs.
  2. In vocational service honesty is still the best policy.
  3. In community service we can plan for the future.
  4. In international service we must reexamine our world.
  5. And finally we can extend the influence of Rotary.
