President's Message

Don’t you just love the cycles to the year? How boring it would be, if everything was always the same.
June, in particular, is an exciting month. Kids and teachers are pumped because the school year is almost over and the summer break is just around the corner. Only a few things to get through first – like exams, report cards, graduation and award ceremonies, signing yearbooks.
In Rotary world, too, June is a particularly exciting month. The District 7070 Training Assembly took place on the first weekend in June. This educational and networking event is mandatory for Club Presidents-Elect and open to other incoming board members. In addition to the review and approval of the District Budget for the coming year, there are a number of breakout session devoted to specific board roles and tools, such as Club Secretary, Club Treasurer, How to Run a Board Meeting, How to Use Social Media, and Club Runner. Later in the month, the District Awards and Changeover Ceremony will take place on June 20th. This event celebrates the accomplishments of clubs in the district and the torch will be formally passed from this year’s DG John Burns, to his successor DGE Virginia O’Reilly.
Closer to home, we still have a few noteworthy events ahead of us as another Rotary year winds down. Thursday of this week is our annual Rotary Golf Tournament, which promises to be another very successful fundraiser, and lots of fun. Next Monday, June 17th at 7 pm, is the last of the planned events in our Wellness Series. This one, titled “The Power of Social Connections for Better Health” will feature speakers Laura McGugan from Community Care for Seniors and Ann Van Vlack from The County Foundation. Finally, the Past President’s Dinner is coming up on June25th, an event I always look forward to.
On a personal note, I hope to be able to join you in person for this Tuesday’s meeting. I’m gradually “graduating” to walking with a cane! I’d like to once again express my profound gratitude to PP Ken for stepping up to take over for me during my recuperation. I think a standing ovation is called for.
Yours In Rotary,

Lyn McGowan
President, Rotary Club of Wellington

Rotary Song

R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary.
R-O-T-A-R-Y, is known on land and sea.
From north to south, and east to west,
They profit most who serve the best,
R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary.
