Thank You Rotarians for a wonderful year!

My year as your Governor is drawing to a close.  What a wonderful journey it has been.  I am so proud to be a part of this outstanding District. During this year I have visited all the clubs (some more than once!) and got to know all of the wonderful Rotarians in our district.  Thank you to all the clubs for your warm hospitality.  I sincerely enjoyed my visits.

I must give a shout out to my leadership team:  Assistant Governors, Committee Chairs, Executive Committee, and especially to my DRFC Chair Chuck Arnason and my Lt. Gov.  Stephen Beer.  I also must thank all the PDGS upon whom I called and e-mailed on numerous occasions for advice, input and ideas.  Our District is unique in that our PDGS provide counsel and support.
