Over the last couple of months, I've made it to all 37 of our clubs in District 5180. This picture is from my visit to the Marysville Rotary (a fun bunch!) I have to say, I am incredibly impressed and proud at how well you've all handled the trials and tribulations of trying to stay connected, relevant and helpful in your communities during the pandemic. I am also very optimistic that our district will continue to shine as an example of what right looks like when it comes to leadership, inclusion and service above self. 
My tag line this year is "Rotary is FFF'n Amazing" - with the three F's standing for friends, family and foundation. With November as Foundation month, I'm thrilled to share some exciting news this month related to our district's commitment to the Rotary Foundation and its efforts around the world, including some pretty incredible projects right here in our back yard. So keep reading! 
If you haven't already signed up for tomorrow's Rotary Reboot, please do! Details are below, but it's a great opportunity to learn from each other ways that we can all breathe new life into our clubs, grow our membership, and ensure we are an inclusive, service-oriented organization. 
As we head into fall and the holidays, I want to say how grateful I am for all of you, and for all that you do as Rotarians for your communities, our region and our world. 
Please stay healthy!
