What a great eleven months!  Vernette and I have traveled over 15,000 miles, visited all of the district’s 65 clubs at least once and many several times.  We participated in Paul Harris recognition events, such as a club reaching 100% Paul Harris participation and individuals being recognized as a major donor.  These clubs and individuals deserve a special visit and thank you on behalf of our district and The Rotary Foundation. 

We have also attended club fund raisers such as dinners, breakfasts and auctions.  We’ve enjoyed the meals, fellowship and the opportunity to be at an event where a Rotary club was engaged.  We recently had the opportunity to celebrate with nearly 300 Rotarians and guests at a birthday party for The Rotary Foundation.  Eleven Rotary clubs that comprise the Greater Des Moines Area Rotary Clubs, came together to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Rotary Foundation.
At the International Convention in Atlanta, June 10-14, Vernette and I, along with Rotarians from around the world and across the United States celebrated 100 years of The Rotary Foundation and all that is great about Rotary. Rotary is Serving Humanity
Just under 300 Rotarians and guests enjoyed, learned and were inspired at District Conference May 4-6, check back for a link to pictures of another great District Conference!
