AUGUST 7 - DISTRICT GOVERNOR MARTY HELMAN'S OFFICIAL CLUB VISIT

 

 

Visiting Rotarians:  Marty Peak-Helman -- District Governor, Boothbay Harbor; Sheila Rollins -- Asst. District Governor, Bridgton
Members We Missed: Blair, Crockett, Dennis, Laux, Mann, Murphy, Steven, Zinchuk

The District Governor's talk urged Rotarians to "use your passion to change lives."  "It starts with one Rotarian, one inspired individual," she said, and gave a number of striking examples of what single Rotarian's idea and passion turned into.

She addressed the issue of declining membership, noting that the world is changing faster than Rotary, and that Rotary has increasing difficulty attracting under-40 professionals.  Reconsideration of traditional meeting times and formats may be in order.

Thank you Walter ~
