Rotary District 5370
District Governor 2016 2017
Rotary International President John Germ and his wife Judy have selected “Rotary Serving Humanity” as the theme for the 2016-2017 Rotary Year. What a wonderful year this will be as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of The Rotary Foundation and participate in the final push to End Polio Now!
Celebrations are a vehicle in which we are able to share our successes, our vision and our ideals with those that we care about. There is no better time than this year to invite those same people within our networks to join our clubs and our Rotary Community. I urge all Rotarians to commit to inviting your friends and neighbors to join you at your meetings and your service events. Allow them to have that “Rotary experience”. Give them the opportunity to share in the excitement and service that you provide in your communities! Welcome them into your club as new members.
Rotary Clubs in our District have made an extraordinary effort in the last six years to support youth and help them to “Do Good in the World”. The growth in our youth programs has been explosive! The youth understand Rotary is the best organization to partner with in order to achieve their goals for global reach and positive change. Please make room for these young future Rotarians (Interactors, Rotaractors, and Rotary Youth Exchange Alumni) to participate at the club level, to be members of the club and to continue to contribute to Rotary with their energy and enthusiasm. We can start the next 100 years with more hands, renewed vigor, exciting ideas and projects that will result in an even greater legacy.
The District Leadership Team and I look forward to a year of sharing past accomplishments within the District and we look forward to assisting your clubs to achieve even more in the 2016 2017 Rotary year.
I am grateful to my family, the members of Rotary District 5370, the Youth in our District, the Leadership Teams and especially my own Rotary Club of Westlock for their support, kindness, inspiration and this special opportunity to serve. I thank you all for the trust and love that I feel everyday as part of this community we call Rotary.
Yours in Rotary Service,
