GOVERNOR LISA'S SEPTEMBER MESSAGE

 
August was full of lots of planning, committee work plans and connecting with clubs. I hope everyone enjoyed time with family and friends, we are all so thankful to have a summer break to rejuvenate, and reconnect. Now we jumpstart! 
 
I have been loving the Member Spotlights in social media for August: New Member and Club Development month. Celebrating our members and their talents is what Rotary is all about. For more creative ideas for recruitment and retention, please reach out to Michele Starwalt-Woods D7090 Membership Chair: michelestarwaltwoodsrotarian@gmail.com

One of the greatest honours I have is inducting new members to Rotary.  Recently, I had the privilege of participating in the induction of 7 new members of the Rotary Club of Brantford  Sunrise that will be part of forming the NEW Paris Satellite Club.  Satellite Clubs offer this unique opportunity to create within the same community, a new culture of meeting times, service projects and community connections. This newness may be what prospective members and their families are looking for in membership. Would you or your club like to hear more about Satellite Clubs? Connect with PDG Melisa Schrock, D7090 Chair of New and Innovative Clubs: rotarianforever@gmail.com.
 
 
 
I am so excited about the planning from Clubs and Areas for our IMAGINE Rotary in 2022-23. I encourage clubs to collaborate within their area to have a service project and showcase Rotary. Everyone has fun joining together and collectively demonstrating the IMPACT we in Rotary, with our family and friends provide, both locally and internationally. I look forward to joining you at your area events, service projects, recognition events and fundraisers. 

We will have our District 7090 Participate for Polio October 1, with clubs joining in that day or hosting their own End Polio Awareness Event & Fundraiser during the month.
