Greetings Fellow Rotarians
It’s been a wonderful journey but we have reached the end of our 2021-2022 Rotary Year! 
This was our year to bring people together, to work together and to bring hope to those in need in our communities and around the world. You have met the challenge and delivered! You focused on bringing in new members, branding our club image, and to reach out and engage with people to experience what we love, Rotary: Service Above Self!
Our theme “Peace through Rotary” bringing Rotarians together with a passion to serve was the cornerstone of our District Action Plan. Having a meaningful connection with our club, district and community created our bond for an effective pathway for service. We are people of action.
We are visionaries, uncommon leaders who never allowed the pandemic to overpower us. We held fundraising projects to fund our service projects. Our process of preparing and delivering the projects changed, the way we communicated change, but we never surrendered. Thanks to your strengths, sacrifice and compassion to serve and raise the intensity of our commitment to shine the brightest when inspired.
Our moment is now, and our District Conference was our time to celebrate our accomplishments and to recognize outstanding Rotarians for their leadership and service to Rotary. Together we made significant changes in a time of uncertainty, and I am proud to serve as your District Governor through this moment in time.
I ask that you renew your commitment to “Service Above Self” in the coming year and to provide my successor, District Governor-Elect Kent Grier, with the same enthusiasm and support as you showed me during this productive year, after all we Serve to Change Lives!
Thank you for the distinct honor and privilege I have had in serving as your District 5930 Governor!! It most certainly has been a very successful but most importantly a blessed 2021-2022 Rotary Year!
Peace through Rotary,
Amando Chapa, District Governor (2021-2022)
The following are some highlights that occurred in 2022:
Our focus this month is our annual fund giving to the Rotary Foundation (TRF). Please remember to send your annual fund contribution before the end of June (send your contributions now). Leadership transitions are happening around the district and this month will be even busier. Club presidents are having their last board meetings, club meetings and the preparing for another Rotary year. June is also the month that dads are celebrated on Father’s Day. So for those of you that are blessed to be a dad, Happy Father’s Day to you. It’s important to take time to be with loved ones during this month. It is a time to reflect on your accomplishments and a time to rest and recharge.
Memorial Day - a time where we honor all U.S veterans who have sacrificed their lives. It was great to see several clubs on social media acknowledge these fallen heroes.
May is also Youth Service Month. Where Interact Clubs have high school seniors in the club that have graduated and will start a new chapter in their lives, we wish them well and truly hope they continue with Rotaract and eventually join Rotary. These are the leaders of tomorrow!
Remember we have our very own District 5930 Rotary Facebook page and District Website so please submit and share your good news, events, announcements, etc. with the other 50 clubs in our District! Visit our District Website (
This month we celebrated our District accomplishments at our District Conference at the Embassy Suites Hotel McAllen Texas, April 22-23, 2022.
Friday evening (April 22) we began our fellowship, and happy hour with the district conference team.
On Saturday, April 23, we had our District 4WAY Speech Test Contest, Foundation and Public Image breakout sessions.
We had a wonderful conference with two hundred estimated in attendance, over 137 district awards presented to clubs and individuals.
This conference was our moment to celebrate in our district accomplishments. I also acknowledged and chose Rogelio Trevino the Assistant Governor award and two Rotarians of the year (male/female) Andy Zamarripa, IT & Assistant Governor and Darlene Pederson, District Secretary, congratulations to them for a job well done.
Greatest milestone was the Rotary Citation Recognition Award given to forty-five clubs, a first in our district history. Thanks to our District Conference Chair, Monica Rodriguez and the conference committee for their exceptional dedication and making this a very memorable event. This was one of the best district conferences I have attended in my eleven years with Rotary.
Foundation training continued to be our focal point this month. We had two training sessions set for this. Training consisted of informing your club on the Rotary Foundation (TRF) programs: EREY, Paul Harris Fellows, Paul Harris, and Polio Plus Fund, and explain each programs purpose to your members. It is always a good idea to encourage your members to understand the purpose of the foundation to provide funding for service projects through Global grants and District grants.
Lone Star PETS (LSPETS), President Elect’s and all leadership team members prepared for this event that was held in person in Dallas, Hyatt Hotel near the airport. This is where our leadership team from President elects, Assistant Governors, and DGE, DGN and current District Governor present the upcoming Rotary year district action plan. There was a great turn out in attendance from our district members despite the severe weather conditions that caused airlines to cancel flights to Dallas. Our members found a way to get to Dallas and engaged with our programs for the new Rotary year 2022-2023.
 Happy New Year 2022! The halfway point of our Rotary year, this is the time where we focused on growing our membership and focused on accomplishing our goals. This month is where most clubs concentrate on their progress using your club action plan and the district action plan. A time where officers of the clubs engage with their Assistant Governor’s for guidance.

Students will also be taught the importance of financial literacy and will also be obtaining an industry-based certification with completion of the NNCER program. With a matching $500 grant from Rotary District 5930, our club was able to provide the funding for one of the 10 students.

People of Action helps define Rotary for those who don’t know us. We’re professional, community, and civic leaders who connect with each other and who share a unique perspective and passion for taking action to improve the world. Describing and showing ourselves as people of action creates a personal connection to Rotary and emphasizes the impact we make in our communities.
