District 6970 clubs nominated three outstanding candidates, all well qualified, to serve as District Governor for Rotary year 2024-25. We want to thank the Clubs, and particularly the outstanding Rotarians who were honored with their club’s nomination for their willingness to serve.

This year the Rotarians serving as members of the nominating committee were: Nominating Committee Chair PDG Jeanette Loftus (Flagler County), Charles Allen (Greater Gainesville), Bea Fore (South Jacksonville), Jared Dollar (Palatka Sunrise), Karen Weiss (Deland), and alternate member PDG Dave Faraldo (Orange Park). The committee prescribed to the best practices and principles of Rotary in executing their duties on the committee. Their task was made with professionalism and dedication to selecting the most qualified candidate from a pool of exceptional candidates and I commend them for a job well done.

Pic of the Week

I had to go with two pics this week. It was way to hard to decide which was best.

We have the Rotary Club of St Augustine Sunset celebrating the induction of their new members and a new club.

We also have the Rotary Club of Flagler County Celebrate 40 years of service to their community and the world.
