District Governor's Letter to the Rotarians of
District 5690

__________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

Dear Fellow Rotarians:

 

Hello to all my fellow Rotarians. We are all making our plans, putting them into place, and just waiting for our time. I am sure each of you will have a rewarding experience, and remember to enjoy the ride and your year will be great. I am humbled at the opportunity to be your District Governor and I too am ready to enjoy the ride!

 

Ron Burton has chosen a great theme for us this year, “Engage Rotary Change Lives.” I want you to do something for me right now. Stop reading this letter, close your eyes, and think about one or more of the experiences you have had where you have engaged in Rotary and it changed lives…go ahead. It will only take a few minutes and then you can bask in the great emotions of helping others.

 

I just did the same. Now my eyes are open and I will share my experience.

I attended the International Convention in Buenos Aires, Argentina and there were hundreds of projects that fellow Rotarians were displaying. There was literally tent after tent of projects and my club requested that I return with an international project. I spoke with a Rotarian from Florida whose project was to provide vitamins for a village in Guatemala. Simple, one a day vitamins for small children and I was moved by her simple passion.

 

I returned to my club and presented my conversation with this Rotarian and felt we should find a way to help with this project. After our meeting, one of my fellow club members came up to me and shared that her father was in the pharmaceutical business in California and she would contact him. He was thrilled at the opportunity to help.

 

I contacted my Florida Rotarian acquaintance and told her of the gift. She in turn contacted Rotarians she knew in Michigan, who worked with airline personnel, and they were willing to carry the vitamins to the airport in Guatemala. The Rotarians in Guatemala then met the airline and hand carried the vitamins to the village. So, the vitamins were shipped from California to Michigan, put on another plane to Guatemala, and then hand carried to the village. This shows that we can make a difference through the power of Rotary. How many lives did we change? A whole village.

My friends, go forth to “Engage Rotary and Change Lives.” See you around this year and I hope to hear your life changing stories!
