President’s Message

Dr. Allen B. Konis 
President 2019 – 2020

Rotary Is Family 

The phenomenal growth and contributions the Rotary Cub Downtown Boca Raton has made in its brief history have been remarkable. Our community’s embrace of our message and our focus on health and wellness, has been reflected in our increasing membership and diversity. As our club continues its mission to help those in need, our ability to do so has grown. The understanding that we are one family is a message resonating in our club every week with the energy and common purpose we share.

The vision of our original 32 charter members in 2012 has spread throughout our community and grown our membership to 90 in seven short  years. Rotary’s simple message of SERVICE ABOVE SELF, ignites a universal understanding that we are all Rotarians. Our club provides the opportunity for us to pool our collective efforts to truly make a difference while building great friendships, indeed we are one family.

In Rotary, we unite because we are far stronger together than we could ever be alone. We take action, because we are not dreamers, but doers, right here, right now! We work to create lasting change that will endure long after our involvement has ended, in our world and in our communities. And we work to create change in ourselves, not just in building a better world around us, but becoming better people ourselves.

It is my great honor to serve as our club’s first healthcare professional President in Rotary year 2019-2020, and lead this extraordinary group of men and women. It is my hope that we continue to expand our reach and attract more like-minded people to join our family. Let’s engage young people and young professionals showing them the value of Rotary to personal growth. As we move forward, we want to grow our connections to our community and our world, support each other through difficult times, rejoice in our members great moments and continue to have fun!

So, let’s move forward with the same determination and spirit that has guided us from day one. Let’s continue to connect across our differences, to be there for each other as well as for those who need our help. Let’s remain the unstoppable force for good in our community and our world.
