965 days ago, Mayumi and I were interviewed in Coeur d’Alene for the position of District Governor 2016-17.  It is hard to believe that so much time has passed…we have completed our GNATS training, our GETS training…we have attended the International Assembly and, just recently, our first Rotary International Convention in Seoul, South Korea.
 
The 58 club presidents, the 10 assistant governors, your district leadership team, and I are prepared to assist clubs in being the best they can be.  One focus this year is on supporting activities that will promote club membership growth, fellowship, and FUN.  A second focus is on celebrating our Rotary Foundation’s 100th anniversary, together with attendance at the International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia.  A third focus is on supporting multi-club activities such as presidents’ meetings, multi-club fundraising and service projects, and multi-club training.
 
A week ago I was privileged to attend a Rotary 101 day-long workshop for members of the Radium Hot Springs, Golden, and Invermere Rotary clubs.  A great opportunity for grassroots learning about Rotary basics and for members to understand each other’s clubs and to develop joint projects.  Thanks to Maria Kliavkoff, Michelle LaPointe, and Darrell Smith, all new presidents, for organizing the event!
 
 
Kimberley Rotary Club President, Sandra Roberts, was privileged to present member Scott Owen with an award for 35 Years of Perfect Attendance.  That means that Scott has attended a Rotary meeting somewhere in the world every week for 35 years, folks.  Congratulations, Scott.
 

 
The Kettle Falls Rotary Club received the Rotary International Significant Achievement Award this year. Governor Mike Dalessi was honored to make the presentation to the club at their June 16, 2016 meeting.   Kudos from all of us in the district for your Achievement during this Rotary Year.  Keep up the good work.

A very rare ceremony took place Thursday morning, May 19th at the 7:00am meeting of the Columbia Valley Daybreak Rotary Club.  Past District Governor Bob Carroll assisted by Assistant Governors Daryl Francis and Don Roberts presented 13 members with Paul Harris recognitions.  This club has now achieved it's goal of 100% Paul Harris Fellow status for it's entire club.  Great support for the Rotary Foundations Annual Fund.
