It's almost spring - daffodils, tulips and all the trees showing new energy and growth! In District 6900, we are about to enter the fourth quarter of our Rotary Year - and I hope we will use the energy and enthusiasm of spring into all we are trying to accomplish.
While there's work ahead of us, I'd like to start by inviting you to a party! Please join me and District Rotarians for a Jolly Holiday in SanDestin - at our District Conference April 28-May 1. Our conference committee has planned for lots of fun and fellowship - and a celebration of all we've accomplished so far this year. Read more below and register now!
On a more serious note, many of you have asked how Rotary is responding and what you can do to help the Ukrainian refugees. The District is looking at its options and we have included some information here for clubs and individuals regarding contributions to The Rotary Foundation through its disaster relief program, ShelterBox and a third option that we posted on the district blog about a week ago from Buckhead Rotarian Radu Zernoveanu Jr., whose father is a Rotarian in Romania working on a supply chain effort to support the refugees.
Please consider how you might want to help, and also keep The Rotary Foundation in in mind as part of your overall giving plan - it is our charity of choice and your gifts to the annual fund - even at the $100/year EREY level - makes the work we do in our communities and the world possible.
As you know, membership growth remains our number one internal priority this Rotary Year - as we look to "Grow More to Do More." How healthy is your club? How
are you adapting to enhance participant engagement so
that you are able to expand your reach and Increase
your impact in the community. Check out this list of District 6900 clubs who have more members than they did at the start of this Rotary year! There's still time to grow your club - and our membership committee is ready to support you.
As always, thanks for all you do to make your communities and the world better places!
