Q:  What is one of the goals for our new R.I. President, Ian  Riseley?
A: Our environment. 
Ian challenged every Rotary club to make a  difference by planting a tree for each of its members between the start of the Rotary year on 1 July and Earth Day on 22 April 2018. Trees remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which slows global warming.
“It is my hope that the result of that effort will be far greater than the environmental benefit that those 1.2 million new trees will bring,” Riseley said. “I believe the greater result will be a  Rotary that recognizes our responsibility not only to the people on our planet, but to the planet itself.”  He makes the case that protecting the environment and curbing climate change are    essential to Rotary’s goal of sustainable service.
