President’s Message

2018-2019 Club President Sevada Hemelians

Sevada Hemelians

Winston Churchill is quoted as saying “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give”. Through all of my years as a member of Rotary and specifically, here in the Rotary Club of Glendale-Noon, I have been honored to  serve with some of the most generous and dedicated individuals I’ve ever met. As president of the Club for the 2017-2018 year, I hope to continue our rich tradition of Service Above Self as we reach out to both our local and global community to make a difference in the world.

This year I will work with our Club to expand on the success of the Cars for Cops and Kids program that brings neighborhoods together to raise funds and awareness for the Glendale Police Foundation and the At-Risk Youth program. We will also once again participate in the popular Stuff The Bus program as we hope to collect even more to replenish the food stocks of the Salvation Army.

At our meetings we will be enlightened and encouraged by presenters from around the world who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of mankind.

A few presentations we can look forward to include:

  • Glendale Adventist Medical Missions
  • Bikes For Orphans
  • Armenian Eye Care Project
  • City Update from Mayor Paula Devine
  • School District update from Winfred Roberson Jr
  • Glendale Arts – Brand Park and Alex Theater

I know I can rely on your caring and generosity this coming year as we continue to grow our Club and truly make a difference in the world.
