Dear Rotary Club President for 2019-2020,
 
WELCOME TO YOUR PETS 2019
You are here to learn, to connect, and to ignite a fire within to take back to each of your clubs.  You are the leader that EVERY Rotarian will be looking to in the upcoming year to challenge and inspire each member –
  • to grow in their leadership skills
  • to organize and execute projects to benefit your community and the world
  • to have fun
  • to build connections and friendships
This is our 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.
Rotary has inspired the world for the last 114 years.  Rotary was there when 350,000 children per year were infected with polio; Rotary was there when local children needed books to read; Rotary was there when our neighbors needed help cleaning out their flooded homes and the list goes on and on.
Let’s get this year started!
 
John R Hutcherson
District 5840 District Governor, 2019-2020
