Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self. The Rotary District 6840 theme for this year is "Leave a Legacy".

Districts 6840 and 6820 jointly put on the most amazing District Conference, Rotary Rivage 2015, at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino April 10 - 12, 2015. Highlights of the conference include the always popular Friday Night Food Fest at the Point Cadet Pavilion, the "Stop Hunger Now" service project (pictured) where 20,000 meals were packaged and boxed, eighteen breakout sessions featuring expert panelists and moderators, and a luau featuring an awesome Hawaiian dance by our own district governor, Brian "Crazy Legs" Hall. Many Rotary dignitaries were in attendance, including RI President-Nominee John Germ from Tennessee and RI Director Larry Lunsford from Missouri.

The creation of the district’s long-range plan is reaching the critical juncture in our Stratetic Planning Initiative. On Saturday, November 15, Rotarians interested in the future of the district’s service to the clubs met at WYES Studios in New Orleans to hammer out how to accomplish “service above self” starting July 1, 2015. District Governor Nominee Randy Feldman facilitated the session

The approved version of the 2015-2016 Long Range Plan is now available on this website under Club/District Data > Governing Documents. It was presented for adoption and approved at the Mid-Year Checkup on January 10 at the Bay Waveland Yacht Club, Bay St. Louis, MS
