Dear Fellow Rotarians
 
Today we find ourselves in very unprecedented times, times that no one could have ever imagined. 
 
Now is the time to communicate, stay in touch with one another and be the good in the world. We are people of action serving our communities, our world and today we will continue to do just that in very different ways.
 
There have been many cancellations over the past few days from the unfortunate and abrupt ending to PETS last Friday after lunch, to your District Conference Committee cancelling our upcoming annual District Conference scheduled for May 8-9 2020. This was followed by the disappointing and sad news from Rotary International President Mark Maloney late last evening that our International Convention in Hawaii is also cancelled.
 
Please join the District 6380 Facebook Group if you are not already a member. 
 
Tonight at 5:30 PM ET,  I will host a Facebook Live event,  to bring you up to date on where our District is now and share some thoughts of what we can do to serve  in the coming days and months.
 
Rotary will continue to Connect the World !
 
This horrible pandemic will not deter us, we are people of action and when called upon we will deliver, it may slow us down momentarily but it will not win.
 
Prayers and deep concern to you and your loved ones for good health, stay safe and please remember to stay in, lets flatten the curve. 
 
Remember  always wash your hands 🧼!

"Sparky"

One excellent way to greet each other is to use the Indian form of greeting Namaste, with both hand together in front of you . Another good way is the Japanese bowing gently.
