Dear Friends, 
Once an inquisitive girl who wondered where her father went every Monday night (not knowing), got invited to one of the most substantial meetings of her life.  A Rotary meeting. As she entered the room she sat around a table where she felt nervous but yet welcomed by many new faces. As she listened she realized that the conversations around the table were of importance and always had a meaningful and beneficial outcome. She felt the need to do more, not only for herself but for a community. Needless to say, she was intrigued. Today she serves as your President.
As I step into my new role as President I am aware that I have big shoes to fill. I have been an active member of this club for 4 years and I have seen the club's growth and many accomplishments.
This year, I plan to set higher standards for our club. I acknowledge my goals are also my members goals and together we will accomplish as many as we can. We are a determined bunch of individuals with diverse vocations and it is quite honestly an amazing feeling to witness and work alongside my membership. We’ve had our fair share of ups and downs, but what family doesn’t? And that’s what we are…a family. 
We will actively work to increase our membership numbers because Each One, Bring One is an initiative that I stand strongly behind. We will build our online presence so we can continue to share all the good work we do within the community both locally and internationally. Finally, we will participate in one initiative which touches on each area of focus within Rotary. 
With all of that being said one cannot be naive as there will be many challenges. Some of those challenges will be beyond our control.  However, this is more of a reason for me to encourage the membership and other Rotarians to find a way to adapt and work around them. Together, we will bring new ideas to the table and make this one of the greatest Rotary years yet.
In closing I must say I am truly humbled and honoured to serve as your president this year. I look forward to working closely with the board and each member as we all move forward and Serve To Change Lives. The Rotary Club of Brampton Flower City Centennial, is going places and I encourage you to join us!
Thank you for your continuous support and encouragement. I would have never been here without the influence of each of you over the last few years. You have all played an active role in my growth as a Rotarian and I will and hope to continue to inspire each of you in a little way everyday as changemakers. 
Ashni Ramsammy
President 2021-2022
