Rotarians of District 6080 –
I am proud to announce that James Wieberg, from the Jefferson City Breakfast Club, has agreed to serve as Chairman of the District’s Panama Project Committee again this year. Under Jim’s leadership the Panama Project developed significant contacts and relationships with Panama Rotarians and with the Missouri National Guard, which is working on developmental projects within Central America. Many clubs throughout District 6080 raised necessary funds to provide water purification systems, well-baby kits and hand-powered transportation vehicles to poverty-stricken families. I look forward to the reports that
Jim and his team will provide us over the coming months on the success of the project to date.
I realize that all of District 6080’s clubs are well-tasked with the many local and regional projects they conduct; but it is my expectation that each club will continue to find it a valuable and rewarding experience to be involved with an international project – and this one good way to start that process. Indeed, its multi-club projects like this one that will become the norm as Rotary moves into its “New Visions” administrative structure in 2013.
Thank you all for your enthusiasm, as Rotarians, to make the world a better place!
