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

The Friends Forever delegation from Northern Ireland arrived in New Orleans on October 18 and returned on November 1. These two weeks in District 6840 were a "lifeboat experience" where five Catholic teenagers and five Protestant teenagers learned to relate to one another in harmony and peace in a neutral environment (the US).

They visited a number of different venues in the New Orleans and Mississippi Gulf Coast while here. Pictured is the delegation with Slidell Mayor Freddy Drennan as the mayor declares October 22 as Friends Forever Day.
