Greetings from District Governor Jessika Hane 

As I reflect on the first half of the Rotary year, I’m so thankful to be a part of the Rotary family. There is no doubt about it, when it comes to loving and supporting others- Rotarians get stuff done. As 2020 draws to a close, I keep thinking of this quote by C.S. Lewis-”You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream.”

The beginning of a new year is a wonderful time to revisit our goals and plans. I wanted to take a moment to remind you of our District Governor citation award.
Last year, then District Governor Santhana Naidu awarded 14 clubs with the newly created DG Citation. Call me competitive- I’d like to award even MORE clubs with this award in 2021.
As a reminder- clubs can earn this award by accomplishing the following by March 31, 2021:
* Achieve a net gain in membership of +2 members
*Have 30% Female membership in your club OR host a family friendly event (even planning for a late spring/early summer event would count-due to COVID restrictions)
*Contribute an average of $100 per member to the Rotary Foundation

If you’d like help checking your club’s progress towards these goals, please reach out to me, Bettye Dunham, your Assistant Governor or our District Membership and Foundation team. Every Rotary member has the ability to help with these goals- don’t forget to keep working your member wish lists and to set your own personal foundation goals.

As we head into the second half of this crazy Rotary year- keep setting those goals and dreaming those dreams. Cheers to a Happy and Healthy New Year!
