A Note from District 6360 Governor Bill Smith
“Not too late, there is still time” It is March already, and we are into our 9th month of the 2016-2017 Rotary Year!
Leadership Training for those who will lead us through the 2017-2018 Rotary Year is well underway, and many of you are helping with this task to train others and share your secrets. Full District Staff Training has been completed, as well President-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) Orientation. This month will follow with Great Lakes PETS, and then later by the District Training Assembly in April. Rotary does an excellent job of training their leaders, and each of your contributions are much appreciated.
The District Conference will be May 12-13, and the Planning Committee has a lot for you to see and do. You will be able to set up a display table showing off your successes and accomplishments during the 2016-2017 Rotary Year—bring examples of past years, and show future projects for others to see. Remember to nominate your Club Hero and bring the entire club to celebrate. Come celebrate with those who made the trip to Belize 25 years ago, along with a celebration of the District 6360 Foundation started 25 years ago, to support the Belize Project.
In addition, the Hastings Interact Club will be celebrating 50 years! Help us celebrate with them at lunch on Saturday. After lunch, all the District’s Interactors will assemble for their own afternoon conference. BUT WAIT: There will be two club awards, given by relative club size, i.e. there will be three awards given for each of the two categories, and you still have time to qualify! The first award will be given for the Highest Percent Club Net Membership Gain, and the second award will be given for the Highest Per Capita Giving to the Foundation (TRF), including PolioPlus! The cut-off time will be April 15, 2017 and the measured time period will be from July 1, 2016 – April 15, 2017. So, you still have more than a month to get in the running – GOOD LUCK! See you at the District Conference in May! Yours in Rotary. DG Bill
