My second month as your Governor has been Rotary fun-filled.  I have had a great reception by the 28 Rotary clubs and one Rotaract club, which I have visited virtually.  I continue to be impressed by the ingenuity and innovative ways clubs continue to fundraise.  Some clubs are starting to meet in person and all of the clubs I have visited, are meeting via the Zoom platform.  Some are planning on a hybrid model, where members can attend in person and others via Zoom.  If you have not yet booked a visit with me, please do at
I am also impressed by all the work being done on your behalf by members of the Strategic Planning Committee lead by DGE Anne Birmingham and PDG Melisa Schrock.  It will serve us well over the next 4-5 years.  A Zoom session is planned for club presidents to share the survey results, which has helped to rejig the plan. 
The Governor Chain has decided to invite club presidents to a monthly Zoom meeting with us to formulate two-way communications with the District leadership and club leaders.  We will share timely happenings, issues, and ascertain how we can help you and your club to be the best that you can be.
I am encouraging all clubs without a strategic plan to develop one and to use this as the foundation for your yearly goals.  The District has the talent and resources to help clubs to accomplish this.
Our District chairs for Public Image, Membership, Foundation, Service, RLI, Training, and Youth have been very busy behind the scenes in formulating their strategies to grow District resources and make it more relevant to our Rotarians and club leadership.
Finally, PDG Karen Oakes and her committee have worked tirelessly to incorporate District 7090 and are getting very close to finishing the job.  Our current Manual of Policies and Procedures is being reworked in order to be included in the new bylaws for the incorporated District.  Going forward we will be using our Manual of Policies which will streamline our operations substantially.
Proud to serve as your Governor - Building a Strong Future
