John Mucha will finish out his year as District 7190 Governor at the end of this month. Here, he shares a few notes.

It’s been a great year and has gone by very quickly. The clubs and the District accomplished a great deal, and we have wonderful leadership chosen for the next three  years with DGE Fred Daniels, DGN Tammy Heckenberg, and DGND Larry Jones.

Please remember to send in your PolioPlus and Rotary Foundation donations. We have a way to go to meet our goals, and traditionally many clubs wait until June to send in their dollars. Please try to do so by June 15 at the latest so your contributions will be counted against your current goals. It’s the Rotary Foundation’s Ccntennial year. Let’s do our best to make it special.

Please continue to work on membership for your club between now and the end of this  Rotary year. Every club can use new members with enthusiasm and dedication to the great work they do. Many clubs have held membership events over the past few weeks. Now is the time to follow up with those prospects and, if they are interested, add them as members.

The Rotary International Convention in Atlanta is shaping up to be a great event with speakers like Bill Gates and Jack Nicklaus. For those attending, we will be having a district social event there on Monday, June 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. We have almost 50 Rotarians and guests registered. We hope to see many of you then.

And, remember the District Changeover that will be hekd at River Stone Manor in Scotia on Sunday, June 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Time to change the guard and start a new Rotary year.

It has truly been a privilege to serve you and your Rotary club. I wish you all a peaceful and relaxing summer and a great 2017-18 Rotary Year. As always, thanks for all you do for Rotary.
