Aaron introduced ADG Doug Moody who is embarking on a 3 year term as ADG for Area 6 of District 2010.
Doug said he was happy to be able to call on Joyce for advice and said the Club is fortunate to have her.  He has heard a lot about Midland since he's been involved at the District level and especially about the Club's fund raising successes.
Area 6, which is one of 8, includes Midland and Penetang, Innisville and the three Barrie Clubs.
Doug said he's moved a lot, first with his family from Galt to Pittsburgh and Burlington and then to Thunder Bay where he went to High School.  He took his Business degree at Western and became and auditor but left that to join Tire and Auto, a franchising company, of which he became GM.  It now has 33 locations.  In 1989 he joined Etobicoke Rotary but in 1993 he left the GM position to become a franchisee and moved to Barrie to manage them.  HIs wife Joan is a financial analyst, his son Jeff a CA and now GM of the franchise company and daughter Alison manages operations at the family business.
Moving to the Barrie Huronia Club was a pleasant experience because he found the smaller community meant more fellowship.
He's been District Conference co-chair, President for 05-06, and a Group Study leader to Central America, visiting 20 Clubs.  He found Rotaract very active there and when he came back started one in Barrie that has 25 members and there are now seven Clubs chartered in Muskoka.
This year's theme is Rotary Serving Humanity - Better Peoples' Lives and efforts are being made to make the organization more flexible and able to better attract young people.  Not forgetting that there were still 74 cases of Polio last year International is asking every Club for $2,650.00 to finish it.  (The number comes from the first donation to the Foundation - $26.50)  Changes are being made, at the Council on Legislation, to the business of Rotary to save money, to Presidential Citation requirements, to membership and attendance requirements and to Rotaract guidelines.
Doug says Marg Walton will be coming to speak soon and we will find her a dynamic leader and communicator dedicated to doing things together and lending District support to Club efforts.  He says he and Marg are here to help so keep in touch.
