Welcome from the President 

by Lesli Massad
It is with great enthusiasm and appreciation that I welcome you to the 2023-2024 year of the Rotary Club of Oklahoma City.

As we begin this exciting journey together, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for your trust, dedication, passion, and commitment to Rotary and Club 29. This year holds tremendous potential for our club. It’s the perfect time to build upon our 114-year foundation and chart a course for even greater opportunities.

Thank you to our outgoing President, Wes Milbourn and all our past presidents (especially my dad, Omar Massad), for their steadfast leadership and dedication. For decades, we have had the privilege of building upon their legacy and this year is no exception. I am inspired by their commitment and am humbled and honored to follow in their footsteps.

The Rotary International theme for this year is “Creating Hope in the World.” This theme resonates deeply with the values that define our club. It is a call to action –  reminding each of us that we can instill hope in the lives of those who need it most.  READ MORE

Rotary International Announces 2023-2024 Theme

Rotary International President-elect R. Gordon R. McInally called for members to capture the world's attention and lead the way toward possibilities far beyond our current expectations.
McInally, a member of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, West Lothian, Scotland, revealed the 2023-24 presidential theme, Create Hope in the World, during the Rotary International Assembly in Orlando, Florida, USA, on 9 January. He urged members to promote peace in troubled nations, help those affected by conflict, and maintain the momentum of initiatives begun by past leaders.
"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," McInally said at Rotary's annual training event for incoming district governors.
