After concluding her tour of all the Rotary Clubs in District 5790, Pat Peters, our District Governor, had this heartwarming message for all Rotary Clubs as we go into the holidays.
"What an incredible journey! It has been a fantastic five months since Jeff and I started our tour of District 5790 Rotary Clubs. Each club has its own unique culture and priorities, and we have learned so much about how each of you impacts your community and the world."
You are Promoting Peace through children’s books in libraries and peace poles in public parks. You’re making a difference in the lives of young people through Interact Clubs, RYLA scholarships, and adopt-a-school programs. You are Creating Hope around the world through water projects, medical clinics and equipment, and educational support.
You’re building up your local communities through minority business awards, chambers of commerce, and partnerships with other non-profits and businesses. You’re supporting Mental Health through fundraisers, Mental Health First Aid, and grants for youth mental health programs. And there’s so much more!
After visiting with you and learning about all the ways you are serving, I am so proud to be a member of Rotary District 5790! You are planning for the future, building a broader membership base and generously supporting The Rotary Foundation. It has truly been an honor to visit your clubs and to share the Rotary message with you.
Thank you for your commitment to service through Rotary!
Pat Peters - District Governor
