This is a great time to be a Rotarian, and I am humbled and honored to have this opportunity to serve as your District Governor. I look forward to getting to know all of you better this year, and working together to make this the best District in Rotary.
The clubs are the lifeblood of Rotary, and your dedication to making your communities better by engaging in local improvement projects can never be overstated. We applaud those efforts and stand ready to assist in any way possible. The District is here to serve the clubs, and I strongly believe in teamwork, openness, and service. I encourage any of you to contact myself or any District Committee member with any questions or requests for assistance you or your club may have. You will find we have a great leadership group ready and willing to help in any way they can. We are truly a team in this District, and no one is more valuable than you.
Recruiting and retaining members was a major concern I heard most often at PETS during our get-acquainted period. Our District has formed a Membership Cadre and we are working to develop a membership visioning plan to ensure our District thrives in the future, and you will all be an important part of this exciting plan. I look forward to working with your clubs in this critical area as the year progresses.
On the global stage, together with Rotarians throughout the world, we are so very close to finally eradicating polio. It could happen during our year, and what better legacy can we leave for our future generations?
I look forward to a great year of working together in service to our communities, and to making the world a better place through our involvement. By serving others through Rotary, you are all truly a Gift to the World.
