WEEK 51 | STARTING JUNE 19
It’s hard to believe that there are just under two weeks remaining in our Rotary All Star year. The clubs in Rotary District 6970 achieved so much as we celebrated the centennial of the The Rotary Foundation. I am grateful for the efforts of so many to make a difference in the communities we serve.
ROTARY INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION RECAP
Thanks again to the 500 Rotarians from Rotary District 6970 that attended the International Convention this past week in Atlanta. It was a blast seeing the excitement and energy of everyone that made the trip. In addition to hearing from world class speakers and learning about inspiring projects in the House of Friendship, many new relationships were established in the nightly hospitality suites hosted by the Rotary Means Business fellowship.
Plus, our district was recognized as being the LARGEST contributor of DDF funds to the PolioPlus program IN THE WORLD! (See above) The impact of this week will be felt for a long time as Rotary District 6970 continues to lead the way in Rotary International.
ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARDS THIS WEEK
The 2017 edition of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards commences on Thursday, June 22. We have another strong class of rising high school juniors and seniors attending this year...over 130 in all. A special thanks to RYLA Executive Director Kristie Kinsey and committee chair Tim Beck for their efforts coordinating this program over the years. This program does an incredible job delivering leadership training and introducing many young leaders to the great work of Rotary for the first time.
Only 11 more days until DGE Brent takes over!
