District Governor Tom and the leadership team decided to try something new.  Historically, One Rotary Summit events took place in the evening in 2 locations.  To respect the schedules of busy Rotarians, instead of an in person meeting, they created a video.  Presidents received a thumb drive with the 12 minute video to show it as a club meeting  by April 15.  This unique video is also on YouTube at THIS LINK
