Make Membership Memorable
July Message from District Governor, Matt Adler
I am excited to be your District Governor, even under the unusual circumstances we are living in.
Rotary International's (RI) theme for this year is "Rotary Opens Opportunities." RI President Holger Knaack said, "Rotary isn’t just a club for people to join but rather an invitation to endless opportunities” -- that may be opportunities for new friendships; opportunities for partnership and collaboration; opportunities for self-growth; or opportunities to support and serve our communities.
Having been a proud Rotarian for 36 years, I know all of this to be true. Because I believe in the power of a good theme to unite and excite people, I have added a second theme for our District in 2020:  "Make Membership Memorable.” 
Without strong and committed members we cannot have strong clubs. Without strong clubs, we cannot create the change we hope to see through the foundation and through our service projects...
