Week 17. Rotary Minute for week beginning October 27, 2014.

Trick or treat came early here in District 6970. And it was definitely a treat when the Rotary Club of Jacksonville hosted our District Days event on Monday, October 20th, at the Omni Hotel. We don’t have the official count yet, but Rotarians from practically every club in our District were there to hear Rotary International President-Elect Nominee John Germ, and Pakistan’s National PolioPlus Chair Aziz Memon present the latest updates from the Rotary International PolioPlus Committee.

The event was capped-off when our District Rotary Foundation Chair, PDG Cynde Covington, presented a $20,000 check from our District’s global grant funds to John and Aziz toward the End Polio Now! campaign –  $10,000 for each presenter.

There will be a video available soon thanks to RC Amelia Island Rotarian Stan Cottle. Stay tune for more details on that.

And now for the big announcement of the week! Working closely with DGE Fel Lee and DGN Marshall Butler, we have decided to combine our District Conference and District Assembly into one really awesome weekend event. So mark your calendars now for May 8-10, 2015. And be on the lookout for an announcement with more details. It will be coming your way soon. And here’s a hint: It will be from the Poncé de Percé.

EVENT REMINDERS

  • November 1:  Deadline for the submission of District Governor nominations to serve during the 2017-2018 Rotary year.
     
  • November 15 and 16: We need volunteers to help conduct interviews for the outbound applicants in our Rotary Youth Exchange program. We will be interviewing over 60 applicants to fill 20 slots. So a lot of help will be needed. Please pitch-in to make sure that we select the best representatives from our District to spend the 2015-2016 school year studying abroad. Go to our District website to find out how you can sign-up to help for a half-day, whole day or both days. It’s a very rewarding experience.

Details and instructions for these events can be found on this home page under the District Events column in the upper right..

Yours in service to Rotary,
