A MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT GOVERNOR JUDY HUTCHERSON
Where in the District is Gov. Judy??
This Rotary year is really gearing up! We have been to Del Rio and their wonderful 4th of July Rodeo. They were so hospitable to us. When I say, us, I mean John and I and in this case, my daughter and granddaughter. We had a wonderful time.
We installed the incoming President of the San Angelo club, Janet Karcher. I know they will have a wonderful year. When we left San Angelo, we headed to Lubbock to support a fellow Governor, Susan Brints at her installation. You should see what those clubs in Lubbock do for their Food Bank! They have a 2500 tree apple orchard that they have planted and maintain for the Food Bank. WOW!!
We have our first Official visit to the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks Ranch on August 10. Then Pleasanton on August 11. I can’t wait to see what those clubs are up to for the coming year.
I would encourage Presidents to contact me and set up your Official Visit this year. You will be hearing from me soon about dates. Be looking for those new members to induct.
I will be on vacation for 2 weeks, leaving on Aug. 12. BUT I am only an email away.
I know everyone is working hard for Rotary and your community this year!
