District Governor's Article
Over the past six weeks, our family celebrations and holiday events have reminded us of our blessings and opportunities and given each of us the time for meaningful reflection of that which is truly important. As the world careens among natural disasters, manmade crisis and human challenges we know that as Rotarians, we are able to offer resources, assistance and most importantly hope for many-- and we know for the New Year we will continue to be Rotarians with a renewed commitment and engagement to do good in the world. 
District Conference Awards: Your Club Deserves an Award!!!
Has your club done something that you think is exceptional this year? It's time for all our Rotary Clubs to be thinking about what their club has been doing that is noteworthy since 1 March 2016. I'm positive that these Rotarians haven't just been sitting around eating and socializing. I'll bet they've been doing "stuff" to promote Rotary, promote their own club, promote vocational service, make a difference in their community and the world, help our youth, and those achievements go on and on.
