The time has come for celebration as we close out the Rotary Year 2016-17. The club Presidents-Elect have received their training at Presidents Elect Training Seminar in Seattle and the district leadership retreated in Cottage Grove to solidify our vision for the upcoming year. DGE Claudette McWilliams and Educational Coordinator LeAnn Mobley refined our opportunities for leadership development and preparation that will serve our district well for years to come.
The District Assembly was a great success in early April. We raised 1.6 million dollars for our Million Dollar Dinner to celebrate the 100th year of The Rotary Foundation. My personal thanks to all the members of our district who made giving to our Rotary Foundation a priority. Our success is all because you understand the power of giving to The Rotary Foundation. WE CHANGE LIVES BY SERVING HUMANITY!
We Came Together! Right Now! Rotary! The District Conference was a huge success at the Linn County Fairgrounds and Expo due to the hardworking Conference Committee headed by Lee Eckroth and Jessica Pankratz.
May this year be a harbinger of many more successful years to come!
