District Governor, 2011-12
Rotary District 7870
District Conference is scheduled for June 1-3, 2012 at Portland Mariott at Sable Oaks.
For those of you have attended the conferences in the past, we would be very pleased to see you attend another. For our new members and established members who have never attended a district conference, You do NOT know what you are missing. We have the pleasure of meeting the other Rotary Exchange Students who are sponsored by other clubs in our district. These students are amazing young men and women who have adapted so well to our culture and are coming to their final leg of their stay with us. You will hear stories from our very own Exchange Student, Trisna Damayante and her friends tell of their experiences while staying with their host familes and what their new families and friends and their exchange experience have come to mean to them. You visit with new and well established club members from all around our district. We have an optional black tie evening, enjoying the beautiful attire of all members attending. There are wonderful presentations, speeches and displays. There is some "free" time to go shopping or to play a game of golf. Keith is eager to get a team together to beat Past District Governor Chris Parkinson's team. They have won a number of years in a row!!
We would love to see a great contingent of members sign up to give our club a great representation of the wonderful members that we have. The following link will get you to the registration for the District Conference. Please do not hesitate. You will have a blast!
