Latest News from the District

The new District leadership team will take over on 1 July.  The Installation of the new team took place at a virtual ceremony on 27 June.  Incoming District Governor Mary Shackleton and the new District leadership team was installed by RI Director-Elect Valarie Wafer.  Outgoing DG Mahbub Ahmad thanked the entire District team for this year for their support and dedication in turning around the District.  Incoming DG Mary Shackleton, thanked and celebrated the achievements of those who led the District in 2019-20 and pledged to use her opportunity to serve as Governor to open doors for the D7230 Rotary Family.  Here is a link to a slideshow of her presentation.
The District has been closely following and monitoring the protests unfolding in various cities of the United States in response to the killing by law enforcement, of George Floyd.  Governor Mahbub Ahmad said, "We cannot remain indifferent to what is happening in our communities.  Rotary as an organization is committed to the elimination of all forms of inequality and discrimination.".
 
The District Governor String discussed the situation and a diverse team of Rotarians drafted a statement to be published on behalf of the District.  Since it is a statement of policy, Governor Mahbub asked if members of the Governor String would join him in signing on to the Statement.  DGE Mary Shackleton, DGN George McKinnis, and DGND Martin Schulman unanimously agreed to jointly sign the statement.
 
I have been awed at the resilience of our Rotarians – in turning around in the face of adversity.  Faced with the prospect of not being able to meet in-person, most Clubs quickly pivoted to online meetings.  The District facilitated this process by making available the District’s Zoom account for Clubs to use.  In true Rotary spirit, we did not go into hiding from the virus, but came out to stand beside our communities. We were able to get a $25,000 Emergency Grant from The Rotary Foundation - we topped it off with additional funds from the District, making available $56,500 for 24 Club COVID-19 projects.  But the Clubs went way beyond that and implemented 47 projects totaling $190,000 – all in the span of less than 3 months – You are truly “People of Action”, 
While events and activities have been postponed, our Service Above Self has not.  The Spirit of Rotary is alive and well.  This pandemic has provided Rotary, with the opportunity to pivot, to becoming a more relevant organization.  Now is the time to be calm, resilient and resolute.  To paraphrase my fellow Classmate Governor - in this darkness of COVID-19, Rotarians will trim their wicks, so their lights do not go dim, but rather become bright beacons of light on a hilltop.
