Minutarian Week 44: May 2, 2022

We had a great time this past week at the District Training Assembly and District Conference in Jacksonville. Thank you to all that were able to attend. I know we had a couple of conflicts and some of you were not able to make it. We had a great time with many great speakers that both inspired and entertained us. If you missed it, not to worry, we’ll all be getting back together again in August for the Vibrant Club Seminar.  We hope to see you there.

When: Thursday, May 5, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. EDT
Where: Zoom Webinar — Register by clicking

Who: Rotarians and guests will hear about three Clubs making a real difference in the lives of girls. Our first speaker will be Kay Williamson, Founder and Director of Wrap Around, Rotary Club of Meriwether County as she talks about Period Poverty. Next, Dan Quinn, Founder of All Study Steps Tutoring, shares the amazing work of a group of eight Rotary Clubs in Greensboro, NC that support educational efforts for children in extreme poverty. Their project partners with an onsite group in Vietnam, to help girls get their education and graduate from high school. Our last speaker is John Hewko, General Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation, who will share details on how girls in Ukraine are being supported.

Why: Equality is a fundamental human right that’s necessary for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.

Empowering girls aligns with Rotary’s areas of focus and the goals of our Action Plan. See details on that here: Read the Global Gender Gap Report here

We can increase our impact through projects that protect, empower, and create equity for girls. Join us to offer more opportunities for girls to elevate their voices and articulate their views, ideas, and opinions.

It was an awesome time at the Pirate Bash, as we celebrated the conclusion of the District Assembly and Conference. I had the opportunity to get into the pirate spirit with DGE Michelman, DGND Mickey Ulmer and DGN John Tabor who got into the spirit dressed as a Wall Street Pirate (Scary!).
