The Rotary Year 2013-2014 was ushered by a large Missouri National Guard aircraft delivering more than 20 tons of supplies, water filtration kits, etc to our District 6080 Panama Project partners in Panama. What a fantastic way to end the 2012-13 Rotary year and to start the 2013-2014. In the coming year we will complete what PDG Rita Eaterly envsioned and started, PDG Mark Pearce moved along, and in this coming year we will see the fruits of our labors to ENGAGE ROTARY, CHANGE LIVES.

Please read through the December 2012 Rotary District 6080 Newsletter for all the great things going on and opportunities available in the coming weeks.
District 6080 Rotarians – Here is the last newsletter prior to our District Conference, October 18-20 in Branson. There’s a lot about the conference inside. I look forward to seeing MANY of you there. A couple of last minute notes: It would be good to have club banners to hang in the conference area, so if you’re representing your club at the conference, please bring your local banner along to add to the spectacle. Club Presidents – Don’t forget that we could use a $50 (approx. value) gift or gift basket Golf, Casino Night and conference door prizes. At the conference we will be making to final collection of slightly-used clothing, sporting equipment and ambulatory equipment for deprived populations in Panama. (More on that inside the newsletter.) And don’t forget the opportunity to hear Rotary International Past President Ray Klinginsmith at the Foundation Banquet in November. More on that inside the newsletter too. View Newsletter Thanks for being a Rotarian! Mark Pearce Governor 2012-13 Rotary District 6080
Rotarians – Things are happening every day within our District as this month’s newsletter will attest. Assistant Governor Terry Furstenau introduces the projects being tackled by the clubs in Fulton, Boonville, Centralia and Fayette. New Generations Director Rita Esterly highlights the programs under the New Generations Avenue of Service and describes why each of those programs is significant to the well-being of our organization. District Conference Chair Georgia Stuart-Simmons provides insight, highlights and web-registration information for this year’s Conference in Branson. We see a photo gallery of the works being done in our communities through our first quarter Community Service initiatives. A big thanks to chair Steve Dulle for all his good work in that arena. Plus, there is the procedure for non-Rotarians to apply for next spring’s GSE Team visit to Panama, and more. So prop up your feet, sit back and relax as you scroll though this month’s newsletter. It’s not “Harry Potter,” but I think you’ll find it enjoyable all the same. View Newsletter Mark Pearce Governor 2012-13 Rotary District 6080
