La version française de cette lettre est ci-jointe.
 
District 7040 has just chartered a new club concept to make it easy for Rotarians who want to make a difference in their community to do so in a way that fits within their time, talent and finances, as well as with their family, work and life commitments — and do so through Rotary. The founding principle of the Rotary Passport Club is to make Rotary fit the lifestyle of its members through an affordable dues structure and flexible, and infrequent, in-person meetings. Instead of attending weekly meetings, members are encouraged to engage in humanitarian service — however that works best for them. Some meetings are online.
In 2016, the District 7040 DG appointed me chair of the Fellowships Committee. Rotary Fellowships give their members the opportunity to have fun, make new friends around the world, and enhance their experience in Rotary.
District 7040 is pleased to announce that the District Governor selection committee has selected Mr. Gerry Lambert (Canton, NY) as incoming governor for 2019-20.
 
The District 7040 Selection Committee was delighted with the high caliber of applicants and grateful for the leadership and commitments of all applicants.
 
District Governor Nabil Oudeh will be making a formal introduction of DGND Gerry at District Training Assembly in Cornwall on April 8, 2017.
 
 
A Message from DG Sue...
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
            On my continued journey, and having made several official club visits, I have been treated with warm welcomes, hospitality, good humor, and have witnessed your eagerness to work in partnership.  While I continue to fill my calendar with my official club visits, I want to remind Rotary Club Presidents to work with their officers and directors to plan for earning The Rotary Citation (containing 3 prioritized areas with goals); it actually is more flexible and attainable.

The Rotary Foundation Works for Us
YOU Make Our Foundation Successful - WE Can Do More Local & International Projects!
In 2016-2017, our District set out to increase our Annual Fund giving, making a U-Turn from the previous two years of giving.  We set as our goal $170,000 hoping to get within target range of the 2013-2014 giving.  It appears we have come quite close, so for the 2017-2018 Rotary year, we are stretching the goal to $180,000!
 
This month, make sure your club has entered its Foundation goals into Rotary Club Central - with a goal, we can judge how we are doing.  Every member can see the goals when he or she logs into www.rotary.org and clicks on MyRotary.  Need help in entering the goals?  Send an email to District Foundation Chair, PDGBonnie Black - together we are strengthening our Rotary future!
