Andy Lohn

Many of you know that our District Governor Elect Andy Lohn has been going through some very serious Medical issues recently.  At "his" request, I'm sharing the following with each of you.  

     DGE Andy started Chemo treatments as a result of being diagnosed with Leukemia.  After his first series of treatments he was released and a short time later had what was described as a mini stroke.  He was hospitalized as he could not move his arm, presented with heart issues, sepsis, his system was shutting down. 

     During my hospital visits with him on 12 and 15 May 2021 he stated that he has started slowly regaining movement of his arm and was moved to a different section of the hospital for therapy/rehab.    DGE Andy relayed to me that he would not be able to serve as Governor for the 2021-22 Rotary year and realizes he has to focus on recovery and getting stronger.  DGE Andy stated that he definitely wanted to be able to serve as DG at a later time after recovery at a future date. 

Subject to RI approval:

  • DGN Ed Presnell  (Rotary Club of Augusta #4189) to move forward and serve as DG for the 2021-22 Rotary year.
  • DGND Heather Kellen (Rotary Club of Perry # 4209) to move forward to serve as DGE effective 1 July 2021 for the 2022-23 Rotary year.
  • DGE Andy Lohn ( Rotary Club of Savannah South #4213) to serve as DGN (based on recovery) effective 1 July 2021 for the 2023-24 Rotary year.

    As a direct result of "your" input/requests and based on our Covid-19 world/RI Travel Restrictions/Guidance, we are going to have a Highly Modified Hybrid Celebration.
     This will be a series of events starting 1 May 2021 through the end of June 2021.  All events will be recorded for you to enjoy at "your" convenience.  Click here for details.    

        The 1 May 2021 (10 a.m.-3 p.m.) event focused on our incredible young leaders and featured our Preston Johnson Speech Contest winners with check presentations. We also heard from our dynamic Interactors and Rotaractors and recognized their many Award Winning projects/initiatives.  This event was completed as planned.

        Presidents will be sent an Agenda showing the Future Hybrid events through June.  These events will highlight a special Memorial Service honoring those we've lost this Rotary Year. The upcoming sessions will cover District Initiatives/Training/Inspirational Keynote Speakers and Fun leading up to Awards Presentations and an Introduction Honoring our Future Governors.
