I want to personally Thank and Congratulate Past District Governor Debbie High in leading our Rotary District 5930 for Rotary Year 2016-2017.

As we close one year and begin a new one, our mission continues the same to Service Above Self. Every Rotary International President announces their annual theme with Past Rotary International President John Germ of Rotary Serving Humanity. For Rotary Year 2017-2018, Rotary: Making a Difference. Your District Leadership Team has been in training sessions since January 2017. They have dedicated evenings, weekends and been in Conference calls to brainstorm new ideas and find better ways to Energize Service Thru Rotary. I am impressed and very Proud of their Professionalism and eagerness to Serve our Clubs to have a Successful Rotary Year 2017-2018. OUR MAIN GOAL FOR 2017-2018 IS TO HELP AND SUPPORT OUR CLUBS!

As your District Governor for 2017-2018, one of my main goals is to not keep Rotary a Secret. I have developed and initiated a “TOOT YOUR HORN” Campaign to let our Communities and the World know How we have served them and continue to Serve them. We have several Clubs in our District that have celebrated their Centennial Anniversary and several more that are almost there. That means that they have served our Communities for over 100 years. WOW! 100 YEARS! With daily developments and evolutionary methods of communication such as Social media, it is not only critical but important to Be Connected and STAY Connected. We all need to do OUR part to have our database profiles updated with the most recent information. Our Members need to know What is Happening and the Impact they are having in Our Communities and The World. We will be having Training Conference Calls every 3rd Monday of each Month as a Continuing Rotary Education opportunity. Your Assistant Governors are ready to help and assist you setting your Club Goals in Rotary Club Central by July 18th.

In 2016-2017, we celebrated our Rotary Foundation Centennial Celebration in Atlanta and our Rotary Foundation continues to be Strong with receiving the Highest rating in Charity Navigator as The BEST in the World. We now concentrate in our Next 100 Years. With our Growing Membership, it is up to US as Rotarians to sell the Value of Becoming a Rotarian and Keeping and Engaging our Newest Members as well as our Seasoned Members. We need to ENERGIZE Service Thru Rotary to Attract New Young Members to continue the GREAT Works of Rotary for another 100 More Years!
