Thanks to the hard work of the District Conference Planning committee, headed by William and Wanda
Johnson, our 2015 Rotary District Conference was a HUGE success! The venue proved to be just what
we needed as we came together to celebrate the many points of light in our District! If you missed the
conference, you missed a number of informative and stimulating sessions with discussions surrounding
dementia, hunger projects, literacy projects and many other humanitarian efforts. When two or more
Rotarians are gathered, there is often LOTS of fun and this conference proved to be just that.
We now turn our sights on finishing the year as strongly as possible. If your club has not yet completed
its fundraiser for our Foundation, or made your contribution to Polio Plus and to CART, now is the time
to do so. Our foundation is an excellent steward of our money and your generous contributions keep
enabling Rotarians worldwide to “do good” in the world. It’s also not too late to invite a future Rotarian
to one of your club meetings or social events! Remember, your spouse, children or “significant other”
may be just the Rotarian that your club is looking for!
However you celebrate this season of renewal, please remember our mission of “Service Above Self”
and give of your time, talents and resources for humanitarian efforts. Happy Spring! As we move
towards summer, please continue to “Light Up Rotary”!
