2015 Rotary District 6970 Conference and Assembly

Week 38. Rotary Minute for week of March 23

Last week’s Minute was about our District Conference and Assembly. This week, let’s have a quick show of hands if you’ve ever been to a Rotary International Convention. Now, for those of you with your hands up – and I trust there are a few hands up in your club – give a thumbs up if it was a great experience. For most who attend it is an awesome Rotary experience. The world of Rotary comes together in one place for almost four days. And Rotary International puts on a world class program for those four days. You leave the convention more convinced than ever that you are part of the solution and that your decision to join Rotary was the right choice.

Next question: Are you registered to attend the 2015 RI Convention taking place June 6-9 in festive Sao Paulo Brazil? For those who attend, it’s always fun to get together. But getting together once you’re there is very difficult to do. So we must plan ahead. With that in mind, here are two convention events you need to know about before you leave: The District 6970 Reception and the Southland Reception. If you are planning to go, and I hope a bunch of you are, please contact DGE Fel ASAP. Contrary to popular belief, we do not have a master list of all who have registered. Therefore, unless you contact DGE Fel, you may miss out on some of the fun. DGE Fel and DGN Marshall have all the details on getting together for these two fun events. If you are making your way to the 2015 RI Convention in Sao Paulo – contact:

DGE Fel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or DGN Marshall (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) today!

Event Reminders:

  • May 8-10:  District Conference and Assembly at the Flagler College campus. Mark your calendar for a weekend of interesting, informative and inspirational sessions, and a lot of fun Rotary fellowship.
  • June 18-21:  Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) will take place again this year on the University of North Florida’s campus. Each club should sponsor at least one, and preferably two, aspiring high school leaders to attend this life changing event.
  • June 26-28:  Zone 34 Regional Seminar at the Hyatt Hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. All District and Club leaders are encouraged to attend. Look for more details soon on our District website.
