June is Fellowship Month!
Our Guiding Principles in Rotary provide us with a strong and common purpose.  The word fellowship (or friendship) is reflected throughout these principles.
In the Object of Rotary, the focus, in part, is on developing acquaintances where we can serve together.
The Four-Way Test is a guide to everyday living for use in our professional and personal relationships with those we know and meet.
Our Mission is to provide service to others through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
And Rotary’s Vision Statement supports all these objectives.
For me, fellowship is what binds us all together.  Without my fellow Rotarians by my side, my service efforts would not be fulfilled.
As we end this Rotary year and celebrate all that we’ve accomplished as Rotarians, let’s thank each other for those commitments to service and look forward to more in the year ahead.
As your District Governor, I thank you for the opportunity to lead District 5190 this year!  Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm.  Thank you for your commitment to Serving….to Change Lives!  I am forever grateful for your service!
Soon, DGE Jeff Gabriel will be at the helm and lead us forward to “Imagine” what wonderful projects we can accomplish to make this world a better place and change lives for the better. 
So “All Aboard with Rotary” as we set sail for new horizons.  “Together we are One” in service and in fellowship.
Seas the Day!

News from Auburn: RAW Day


Rotary of Auburn held its annual work day on April 23 at Acres of Hope.

Acres of Hope is a spiritually-based renewal center that provides a safe family environment and healthy living program for women with children. Their balanced approach sets the foundation of change and breaks the cycle of homelessness.

Sixty Rotarians showed up bright and early to lift, move, shovel, load, spread and paint to complete AOH’s two requested projects.

Project 1: Construct and install a 125-foot-long, 4-feet-high retaining wall made of stylish locking pavers.

Rotarian Jeff Ambrosia, designer and architect at Yamasaki Landscape Architecture, spotted the need of a retaining wall to improve livability/functionality of an earthen berm behind the cottages on the AOH campus. Ambrosia donated his services to design the stylish wall that was installed.
