It was an honor serving District 5340 as your Governor, living our theme, "Rotary Connects the World".  I was so proud as all of you connected with your club, your community, and with each other sharing what we as Rotarians are all about - People of Action, doing Good in the World.
We started our Rotary year with a new Vision Statement Strategic Plan, a roadmap to follow, that did create impact in your communities and around the world.  The vision - "Together we see a world where People Unite and Take Action to Create lasting Change - across the Globe, in our Communities and in Ourselves".    You all achieved this new vision, completing four priorities:
  1. Increasing our impact
  2. Expanding our reach
  3. Enhancing participant engagement
  4. Increasing our ability to adapt
COVID-19 along came and changed our world.  But, being People of Action who are inventive, entrepreneurial and resilient, you were ready to seek out fresh opportunities to serve, and reinvent how you operated with confidence.  
Thank you for this UNBELIEVEABLE opportunity to serve.  I have so many memories and experiences in my heart.  Thank you for sharing and making your Rotary world a part of mine.
I am proud as you Make Good Happen Together, with Love, Compassion and Joy".
