District 6840 Stories
Message from Annual Fund Co-Chair Regina Wedig
 
The matching points incentive drive for donations to the Rotary International Foundation has been extended once more!.
 
The District will match points in increments of 100 and up to 500 for individual donations to the RI Foundation received between February 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020.
The Rotary Clubs of Metairie and St. Charles Parish are issuing a "Doing Good Challenge" to all clubs in D6840.
 
Three trophies will be awarded to clubs in our district that are organizing donations of food and money to local food banks, first responders, and schools/the elderly.
 
The Rotary International Board met in April to determine protocols for face to face meetings in the immediate term.
The guidance that resulted from that meeting is below.  Keep in mind that the health and safety of Rotarians worldwide of all ages is of paramount importance.  The guidance relates specifically to meetings of Rotary International and not necessarily to individual clubs; clubs will operate according to local public health recommendations.  Meetings convened by District 6840 will adhere to these new protocols.  Creativity and flexibility are terms that come to mind when we think about how we lead our clubs and serve our participants -- members and our community partners -- in the near term and going forward.  
If you have questions, please reach out to your Assistant Governor or any member of the District leadership team.  You can find all contact information using the Organziation Chart link on the rotary6840.org landing page or by downloading the ClubRunner app to your phone.
   
First Session of Virtual RLI was a great success...
...and we learned that we have to make some adjustments to the planning.  Please read and act quickly!
It is with sadness that D6840 informs you of the passing of PDG R.E. "Bob" Stanton. PDG Bob died the morning of April 17,2020 from complications related to COVID-19. He is survived by his wife Sylvia who, unfortunately, is also inflicted with this virus. Bob served our District as Governor in the 1993-1994 Rotary year.
Please keep Sylvia and the rest of PDG Bob's family in your thoughts and prayers.
Times are tough. People, friends and businesses are under incredible pressures that they have never faced before.
 
But we are resilient – Rotary is resilient. Let’s continue to be People of Action! We may have to do things differently but we will prevail.

Dear Fellow Rotarian,

The COVID-19 coronavirus is affecting every aspect of our lives in real time, and this puts Rotarians in an unfamiliar place. As People of Action, we are most comfortable when we are fully engaged in the world – moving freely, meeting openly, and offering helping hands. These are very difficult times for people who, like us, are at our best when we are learning, growing, and serving—together.
