It’s July! Happy New Rotary Year! I am very excited to be your District Governor for 2017-2018. I am just finishing two and half weeks of club visits. I am excited to serve under RI President Ian Riseley and his theme Make a Difference.
I can hardly believe my year as DG is coming to an end. It has been a total pleasure serving you and more importantly getting to know you better than 1 year ago.
YOU have engaged yourselves in my objectives and helped to move this District into a position where we can say we are a Vibrant District. Our membership numbers are increasing and we are retaining members. WE have filled many Leadership positions with strong engaged members and have worked to continue support to the Foundation.
