Upcoming District 6920
My Fellow Changemakers !!!!
sure RI president Shekar Metha will not mind me reinforcing your
roles in Rotary this year by using his monthly salutation and
addressing you as Changemakers. That's
We have now officially
completed the full first quarter of 2021--22
and as my travels and conversations continue at Mach speed, all
I can think to say is WOW!!!! District 6920 is an exciting
place to feel and witness the enthusiasm of nearly 3,000 members
in 61 clubs. I am so proud of each and every one of you as I
visit clubs and review emails, FB posts, reports, receive phone
calls, and meet in-person and virtually. In September, I was
able to be your guest at 10 clubs, October has 18 clubs on the
calendar, so by this time next month I will be nearly half done
in the visitation journey.
The beauty of this
responsibility is that I get to see a huge level of energy
and so many levels of engagement traveling from club to club. It
is so invigorating each time I meet with club leaders and
members. Each club is unique, yet all clubs are focused on our
theme "Serve to Change Lives".
talk about highlights with the activities already in place:
We have identified a way
to measure how many lives we are impacting in our district. Each
club has been asked to complete a simple monthly report,
estimating how many lives every one of their club projects may
impact in the aggregate, using a multiplier factor. (In short
-- the ripple effect of volunteer
hours, dollars etc.). Please be faithful to this request. I
have an idea that when we announce the totals at our district
conference next spring, the impact will be incredible.
Our membership growth is
rapid. Many clubs have already inducted multiple new members and
we are on track to end the year back over 3,000 Rotarians. If we
are vigilant in our efforts of Each one, Bring one, there
is no limit to our success.
Attendance is growing in
a positive direction at an exciting pace. Many clubs have
returned to in-person meetings and some still offer hybrid
options. Either way, please keep an accurate count on your
reports. (For zoom or hybrid meetings --
just have someone click on the 'participants'
list in zoom -- and take a screen shot
then send to your President or Club Secretary by text or email
-- easy!!) As we cautiously and
consciously restore our new normal from the effects of the
pandemic it is clear that we need to be together.....safely.
But don't forget --
by offering a Zoom option -- members
traveling afar or recovering at home --
can remain engaged and up to speed!
This month is Rotary
Economic and Community Development Month last month was
dedicated to Basic Education and Literacy and next month is
dedicated to the Rotary Foundation. As Changemakers, how have we
planned our activities and accomplished our goals? From my
viewpoint, we are really impacting our service objectives. I
encourage you to maintain your individual enthusiasm and
collective focus. The possibilities are infinite.
Finally, we continue to
enjoy our first Friday with the District Governor live at noon
on FACEBOOK. Please take a few minutes to review our District
6920 FB page for past conversations --
and plan to join us next month. As our page and all posts are
do NOT have to be a Facebook 'user'
to be able to see the page and the videos - -
I want to thank everyone
for everything. So many faithful Rotarians dedicated to our
mission is very inspiring. Let's keep
the momentum going!!
I hope each of you
realize how fortunate we are to be part of Rotary. Our impact
extends from our community to international service. Indeed,
"Serve to Change Lives"
is our mission.
I feel GOOD!!!!!!
