Thank-you District 5020 Rotarians
Thank-you District 5020 Rotarians. It has been such a privilege to serve you as your District Governor. Travelling throughout our District this past year has given me the opportunity to get to know many of you, view your projects, and enjoy the varying cultures of your clubs.
The opportunity for me to witness ‘Rotary in Action’ throughout our District is, and will continue to be, a highlight of my life. You exemplify the true meaning of Rotary.
Rotarians, you have surpassed your goals for the 2012-2013 Rotary year in both Membership and Foundation Giving. We are #1 for Membership in Zone 25 and #2 in the combined Zones 25/26. Well done!
We have surpassed the $1 Million mark by $125,000 in our Foundation Giving and we still have over 3 weeks to go.
You made it possible, by embracing youth programs, to charter 3 new Interact Clubs and 1 new Rotaract Club. Your support of our Youth Exchange Program made it possible for District 5020 to be awarded the Gold Standard Award for the second year in a row from the North American Youth Exchange Association.
And to top it off, all of the paperwork for the Chartering of the Rotary Club of Tacoma Sunset has been submitted to RI.
I am so proud to be a part of our great District. Now, it is time for me to make way for our incoming DG. July 1, Pete Taylor and Kristine will have the honour of meeting all of you. What a year they will have!
District Governor 2012-2013
