Pic of the Week: – two pics this week

DGE Jeff Michelman attended the Jacksonville Symphony with the Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra Beach, this past Saturday Night.

I traveled down to Boca Raton this Saturday to congratulate my Rotary Counterpart in the District immediately south of us. In District 6930, District Governor Michael Walstrom walked his entire district, from Titusville to Boca Raton, that’s over 180 miles.   This was all done to raise money for the Rotary Youth and Peace Initiative. Over $30K was raised. We were joined by District Governors Joe Shumacker and Andy Lyman of districts 6990 and 6960.
