Message from Governor Ed;

Greetings, Changemaker Jim, - and all My Fellow Rotarian Changemakers !!

As I try to find the words to correctly reflect my thoughts in this (my last) newsletter, I believe the theme is thank you, each of you.  
I'm amazed how fast these twelve months have passed, and I'm even more amazed at the commitment to Service Above Self present in every single one of our clubs in this amazing district.  It has truly been a privilege to serve as 2021-22 District Governor.
 

Elsewhere in this newsletter you will see articles providing further insights into our journey together.  "Serve To Change Lives" resonates vividly as we pause to take pride in our endeavors as Rotarians in District 6920.  Consider the following: 

  • We are all meeting in person!

  • As I write, we have a net gain in membership!

  • Attendance is vastly increasing each month!

  • We had a phenomenal in person District Conference in Augusta!

  • The budget for the conference was balanced, meaning all auction funds were free to be applied to the stated objective!

  • We have By-Laws!   To READ them - CLICK HERE

  • We had FUN!!!

  • We generated in excess of $21,000 for The Ukrainian Relief Fund established within The Rotary Foundation!  These funds have been remitted to The Rotary Foundation along with a list of auction winners that will receive Foundation credit (points) for each contribution. Additionally - We learned just at 'press time' that Augusta West Club raised an additional $5,000 for Ukraine relief.  AMAZING! 

  • "Serve To Change Lives" phenomenally changed 23,109,528 lives aggregately in our district, state, and across the world!!!!!!

There are so many thoughts running through my mind as I close this final message....so many Rotarians to thank for dedicated support of this administration.....so many fond memories that will stay with me for the rest of my life.  However, the time has come to begin our new Rotary year.  We are so very fortunate to welcome District Governor Heather Kellen as our next leader.  She has worked very hard preparing her team goals, and I'm very excited for DG Heather and her enthusiasm beginning July 1st. 

All of you have made the last twelve months as District Governor most delightful.  We have honored the theme "Serve To Change Lives" extremely well, individually and collectively.....Now, it's time to move into 2022-23 and "Imagine Rotary"!!!!! 

I love you all for your words of encouragement and smiles of welcome....

Ed
