Rotary Alert
JUNE 2017
  Monthly Report from your District Governor, Ron Broida

Dear Fellow Rotarians:   

  • Atlanta Here We Come:   Join us – yes, there is still time – for a fantastic International Conference in Atlanta.  To sign up now, Enter Here..

  • Service Above Self:    That's our Motto and it is also the name of the Highest Award Rotary can give to any of its members.  Only up to 150 of these awards are granted every year by the RI Board of Directors.  Upon the recommendation of your District Governor, the Service Above Self Award has been given to Linda Yates of the Rotary Club of LaGrange.  A well-deserved honor!!!

  • A New Foundation:   The Board of Directors of the District have created a Foundation called "The Charitable Foundation of Rotary 6450, Inc." and the tax-exemption filing is pending.  This Foundation is based on the operational model of Rotary International and its Foundation by creating a very close working relationship between the two organizations and ensuring transparency and responsibility.  The new Foundation will be able to serve Clubs which do not have foundations of their own and it will otherwise be advancing the charitable and  humanitarian efforts of our Clubs and the District.  The other Foundation, not directly affiliated with the District, is closing.

  • Baseball Time Is Here Again!  Sign up now for the End Polio Event at the White Sox (versus Blue Jays) baseball game on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 with a game start of 7:10 p.m.  Y'all come!  There are two order forms: 2017 Ballgame Ticket Order for small groups of 5 or less, can also order online for small groups at Rotary Fun Day At The White Sox - 8/1/2017, due no later than July 21st.   For Large Groups - whole club purchase, please use 2017 Ballgame Group Order, to assure adjacent seating must be ordered by June 16th. 

  • Club Events: clubs are busy this time and all times of the year.  Interested in visiting another club, attending a club's special event.....check out the District Events & Calendar.

And, Thanks For The Memories …. (some will remember Bob Hope and his theme song), but it seems to apply as we look back, over the past Rotary Year, and see all of the good things that our Clubs and our Fellow Rotarians have done together as "Rotary Serves Humanity".  This will hopefully set the stage for even better things to come.  And, if you did not have fun this year, it was not my fault.

Yours in Rotary Service,
Ronald J. Broida
District Governor 2016-2017
