heard over and over from Past District Governors that the best part of the job
as District Governor is visiting the clubs, and after completing
most of my first month of club visits I can now say that is exactly true. What
wonderful work is being done by the Rotarians at the
Fayetteville, East Cobb,
Atlanta Metro, Atlanta Airport, Atlanta West End,
and my home club of Sandy Springs. And I truly mean Rotarians, not just members of a Rotary Club!
Speaking of making a difference, many of you have shared stories in this newsletter - thanks for all you do and please keep sharing your ideas and accomplishments. Be sure you read PDG Cheryl Greenway's article about the Rotary Foundation and the generous gift made by Kim Walden, President of the Rotary Club of Thomasville, toward our efforts to End Polio Now. And think about joining us this Saturday at the Emory-Clifton Rotary Club's second annual Health Symposium about the Challenges of Eradicating Polio - you can read all about it in this newsletter.
As I write this for the August newsletter, I am getting ready for visits to the Dougherty County, Dawson, and Albany clubs. Donna and I can’t wait!!!
long ago I heard that a survey had found that Rotary was perceived as an
organization that was male, pale, frail, and stale. As I visited my first six clubs, I found four had female presidents, and each and every board
was wonderfully diverse in sex, race, age, and ethnicity. Exactly what
these communities need to Connect With Rotary!
