A Note from Your District Governor

A Look Back at this Unusual DG Rotary Year

My term as District Governor covered a year unlike any other. In my 12-month term, our District and the world experienced all kinds of chaos:

  • The global COVID-19 pandemic

  • The derecho

  • Political unrest

  • Social and cultural turmoil that will hopefully result in lasting, positive change

But through it all, one thing has never wavered: our collective commitment to the causes for which our Rotary clubs stand. The District won numerous awards during the pandemic year, with 20 clubs receiving the Club Excellence Award. And we raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund polio vaccination and various projects in our communities.

Despite the turmoil of the past year, your dedication has been my inspiration. It’s truly been my pleasure to serve as your District Governor, and I look forward to joining you in Service Above Self when your next DG, Jeff Hassman, takes the reins in July.
