Governor "WooWoo's" Message
 
"Each One Bring One"
During Membership Month
 
  
 
 
August is Membership Month which means it's time to invite others to the world of Rotary and to celebrate your Rotary club, your members and the good you each do in your community and around the world.  There are many ways to join in the celebration but to get you started... Say it loud, say it proud,  “I am proud to be a Rotarian!" - "WooWoo"!!
 
Supporting our RI President’s and our District’s “Each One Bring One” Campaign, I recently invited others to engage in the wonderful   fellowship of Rotary and today my home club has a new Rotary member who is being inducted in two weeks!  You can do this too; it is really easy, Just Ask.  So, I'm asking you each to support our “Each One Bring One” District Campaign by inviting someone to join you  
at an upcoming meet or event.  This simple invite can change their life as well as yours.
 
As you may know, I'm always up for a good celebration and what a wonderful one we had at the Meet Governor “WooWoo” evening on July 22, 2021!  This was the first “in person” event that our District has been able to hold since March 2019 when our PETS training was cut short due to what we now refer to as the Year of the Pandemic.  On July 22, I was so happy to meet and greet all who attended and to re-ignite our Rotary fellowships.  It was disappointing, of course, that the Canadian branch of our Rotary family was unable to attend but I look forward to an additional “Meet the Governor” Canadian style celebration once the borders reopen.  I invite you to join me for that celebration as well.  Stay tuned for details.
 
I hope you're enjoying our District social media campaign on the District Facebook page!  We've been focusing on "Getting to Know" your District Team.  If you haven't yet joined our group page, please make sure that you do to keep updated on Club and District events.  It's a great way to stay connected!  Rotary Facebook Group
