I hope you have noticed the changes.

Beginning this month, you will notice
that the Rotopeka, the Rotary Website
and the club email, now the Topeka
Rotary Club eNews all have a similar
look and feel.

You might sense an almost vintage or
nostalgic look to the new design. That is
intentional. It reflects the rich history of
Rotary and those who have served to
make this organization great. But at the
same time, it reflects the future of Rotary and the digital revolution.

Profiled on the Rotary website is a Rotary International video from
YouTube which is one example of how Rotary is moving into the fu-
ture through digital communications. The new Rotary Club of Topeka
website will bring video and other web-based content designed to
connect you to services of Rotary in new and exciting ways.

This month\u2019s cover is an actual screen capture of the new website
depicted with an artists hand, brush and pallet. You will see the
brushstrokes throughout the website and other publications. It\u2019s us-
age is symbolic of the artistic expression I hope to bring to the Rotary
When I began this effort a few years ago, I found a project that I truly
enjoyed and I hope that you find this issue and new design to be
fresh and innovative. It\u2019s part of my ongoing effort of continual im-
provement and I hope that you can see this result.

I would like to thank John Christenson for his hard work and efforts
over the past several years on the website and the club email. John
was extremely helpful during the transition and I appreciate his help.

So here is to a new year of Rotary and one I am very excited to be-
