You are now 2 months into the new Rotary year and what a year it has been so far. I have had the pleasure of meeting with many of you. As of this writing, I have had the great privilege of visiting 46 of our 61 clubs. What amazing people we have in District 6450. There is a lot going on in the district.
Please visit the District calendar to see club and district events: District Events & Calendar. As on your club website, there is also a link to the RI website for your convenience. If you have an event you want others to know about, the district is happy to put it in the calendar. We ask that you first set up the event on your club website and then we'll link to your club event for others to see. Reminder: your login for your club, if your club records on your website are updated will also work for the district's website. However, the login for Rotary International is not connected, so you have to set it up separately.
Rotary International: Visit www.rotary.org and make sure you are set up on My Rotary so you can get information about your club, members, your contribution history to The Rotary Foundation and the goals your club set for the year.
During my visits, I have come to see how much people care about their communities and other people around the world. This has become more apparent since the flooding in Houston. There is information below for you about relief efforts involving Rotarians.
Another thing that is coming up is Youth Exchange applications for next year. They are due soon, so if you know someone who wants to travel to another country, let them know. It will be an amazing experience. Youth Exchange Informational Meeting - 9/23/2017 And, RYLA is approaching, registrations are now being taken....forms are online: RYLA
Fall training and the President’s Roundtable are also coming up. Please remember, training is available to all of our members and it is included in your dues and fees. Take advantage of these resources to help your club. Presidents Roundtable - 9/21/2017 FALL TRAINING - 10/14/2017
Finally, the presidential citation can be achieved. Please make sure you read the pamphlet that the presidents have. There are two mandatory requirements and a plethora of other things to choose from, but it is very rewarding to receive this. 2017-2018 Rotary Presidential Citation Info.
