The District 6970 Inspirer - July 2018
 
 
Congratulations to all of the incoming Club Officers and Directors.  I look forward to working with each of you and each member of our District to be the inspiration in our clubs, to our communities and most importantly to our families.
Wow!  Can you believe it is July 1st and the start of a new Rotary year?  Congratulations to all of the incoming Club Officers and Directors. I look forward to working with each of you and each member of our District to be the inspiration in our clubs, to our communities and most importantly to our families.
 
At the Rotary International Convention in Toronto we heard from fantastic speakers and humanitarians who share similar ideals, who are advocates of change and support Rotary’s six areas of focus. 
 
And, we all share one common belief.

That every child across the globe deserves to live in a world free of poverty, hunger, and disease. A world where every child has access to a quality education, clean water and sanitation, and gender equality.
 
It is not until these basic needs are met, can we live in a world of peace.
 
Rotarians, WE ARE people of action. And. I know that is especially true of Rotarians and the family of Rotary throughout District 6970, who work so hard day after day to enrich the lives of so many.
 
I look forward to working with each of you this year to accomplish great things in our communities and around the globe. But you know, we are much more effective and stronger when we work together. 
 
Each month, the newsletter will feature best practices that our clubs and members are implementing in Membership, Foundation giving and projects, and Public Image. If you have a great idea, please share it. 
 
I look forward to serving as your District Governor and to assisting each and every one of you and your clubs as we join together to BE THE INSPIRATION.
