Message From PDG Cindi O’Neil

“Knowing that as Rotarians you have been watching the new surge in COVID – 19 cases throughout Oregon, I know you are not surprised that we are cancelling the District Celebration for the year 2020-21.  I do not do this lightly knowing first hand all the commitments and hard work the conference team and speakers have put into this effort.  We have accomplished so much this past year and we have much to celebrate, but to do so in-person risks the health and well-being of our members, our communities and our front line health care workers.  We had hoped that the surge would diminish as fast as it rose, but this is not likely to happen in the next ten days.

Many dedicated Rotarians have contributed to the planning for the conference.  I would especially like to thank Conference Chair PDG Jim Lussier, AG Gwen DeBernardi, Marv Kaplan, Judy Corwin, Mike Corwin, Julie Brown, Dan Smith, Beth Sheehan, Bill Anderson, Holly Molloy, Jennifer Stephens, Tim & LeAnn Mobley, and Rob Fincham for the multitude of tasks that have been completed.

If you registered for the TRF dinner and paid $26.50 we invite you to consider making this one of your donations to the Annual Fund.  Your contribution would be then credited to your Paul Harris.  If you wish to receive a refund please contact Governor Gerry Kosanovic.”
