By the time you read this, I will have visited thirty-three clubs since my Governorship began on July 1, 2012.
That’s a lot of talking.
But I am buoyed through the process by all the enthusiasm the clubs have shown and the reception they have given me and the messages I impart. I am also invigorated by the works that our clubs perform for their respective communities and, through the Rotary Foundation, for the world.
I encourage every club in the district to take a serious stab at the Presidential Citation in 2012-13. Unlike last year, this year’s citation challenge is well within the reach of every club…as long as you get the process started now.
Many of the clubs in District 6080 have already made huge strides in strategic planning – one of the requirements for the citation. Likewise, many of our clubs have public image officers and promotion processes that are getting the word out about the good work we do. The requirements most clubs might have to develop from scratch are the peace projects – simple but significant efforts that help to illuminate this year’s “Peace Through Service” theme.
So give it a good ol’ college try. You might be surprised how your efforts could blossom into some of the most memorable activities of your Rotary year.
Have at it.
Rotary District 6080
