DISTRICT GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE

September 2019 - Basic Education & Literacy Month!

We are over a month and a half into The Best Year Yet and I wanted to touch base with my front seat.

RALLYE Awards - Your Club's three goals in three categories, Support & Strengthen Clubs, Humanitarian Service, and Enhance Public Image and Awareness are due to Ginny by the end of this month. If you haven't submitted, it is a fillable .pdf file on the District Website. All I need are your three goals, complete the three blank lines in each section.

Avenues of Service - September 28, at TMCC in Reno. Register at the District website. There are great topics with great facilitators. Every session includes ample time for attendees' questions. If you have questions contact me, Ginny, Karen McDonald, or Robin Milam.

World Polio Day - October 24th. I am hearing about exciting plans to raise awareness and, in some cases, funds about Rotary's efforts to eradicate Polio. They include Polio Walks, Pizza for Polio, Pints for Polio, Fried Pickles for Polio, etc. There is a press release template available for your use. If you haven't started planning reach out to your AG; they are there to help.

Club Visits - Chris and I are enjoying meeting and breaking bread with the amazing Clubs in 5190. A great Rotarian in our District has given me two boxes of chocolate for each Club. When he sells the chocolate elsewhere, the proceeds go to Polio Plus. As part of the visit, I offer one box for a Paul Harris Fellow donation and the other for making the Foundation a beneficiary on your retirement plan, will, trust, or life insurance. To date, we have two PHFs and two Benefactors! If there are no takers at a Club, the chocolates are left with the Club Foundation chair to use to raise funds for polio.

The journey is just beginning and I see each and every Club headed for The Best Year Yet!
