DG Pat Kriebel


I’m so honored to have been selected as the 2014-15 District Governor for District 7170. The district is here to support and strengthen the clubs in the district. We are available to provide training and help you in any way we can. I have a passion to serve Rotary. So, let’s work together in our goal of “Service Above Self”. As this year’s Rotary International theme says, let’s “Light Up Rotary” together for 2014-15.

I was so proud to have a good representation from the Endwell Rotary Club at the “Pass the Gavel” ceremony at the District Conference. I had several members of my family attend- Mark’s sister Laurie and her husband Brad Cumming, Brad’s brother Don and his wife Leslie. My daughter, Jennifer, and my beautiful granddaughter, Jaylynn.  Last, but not least, my son, Dan, who flew in from Africa to surprise me. My husband, Mark had signed him up for the conference as he is a YE Alumni, but didn’t tell me. I have to say, District 7170 kept the secret very well.

I was proud to be able to present District Governor Tom a nice award for his work in Youth Exchange and his great work as District Governor for 2013-2014. The Youth Exchange program inspired my husband Mark to serve as District Governor in 2006-2007 and now me to serve in 2014-2015. It was so wonderful that our Youth Exchange Alumni son, Dan, was able to be here for this conference.

Changes in District Grants for 2015-2016 year

Applications are due on or before June 1, 2015.

The Grants Committee will meet around July 15, 2015

The Spending Plan which lists all grants that the district desires to fund will be submitted to The Rotary Foundation by August 1, 2015

We should have approval of the Spending Plan by Sept 1, 2015 and will then provide official notice to clubs. Note that clubs cannot spend funds related to the grant until after they receive official notice of approval.

The per capita amount donated to the Foundation remains at $30 in order for a club to be qualified for a district grant.

The year upon which the per capita amount is calculated will change; it will be based upon the current year 2014-2015. That will allow any club make additional donations and qualify prior to the committee’s deliberation in mid-July. This also eliminates the need for a club with low per capita giving to partner with other clubs as they have time to achieve qualification on their own.

2016 Council on Legislation


Have you ever believed we need to change how we do things in Rotary?  Is there a modification of Rotary’s policies, procedures, or bylaws that you and your Club feel would make Rotary more effective and relevant?  Now is the time to propose a change; your next opportunity is not until 2017!

Program Ideas for Sharing

Some programs that have been interesting to the Unidilla club are:

-Thomas Sears and Radu Cristea presented about Faces of Freedom, Lives of Courage a book they wrote of first-hand accounts of life and persecution in communist Romania.

-Spence and Judy Gridley have an excellent program on the Discover America trip that the foreign exchange students go on in the summer.

-Don and Janice Tuttle can present on our club's current matching grant project - an educational project in Lesotho, Africa

-and, this is more general, but our high school does a musical every year and we've been inviting the students to do a command performance of a song or two at our meetings.

I hope to hear of other potential presentations from other clubs.

Thoughts from an Exchange Student about their year in the USA

Exchange is change. Sudden, brutal, beautiful, hurtful, amazing, unexpected, overwhelming and most of all: constant change. Change in country, language, lifestyle, friends, parents, houses, school… simply everything.

Exchange is realizing that everything you knew before was wrong, but also right in a way.
