    February District Leadership Meeting Minutes

    Governor's Message

    This month is Peace Building & Conflict Prevention Month! Conflict and violence have displaced over 68 Million people in the past year alone but as Rotarians we refuse to accept conflict as a way of life.  Many Rotary projects address the underlying causes of conflict including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of education, or lack of resources. What can we be doing in our own clubs and communities?

    Rotarians are notorious procrastinators! This month I am foregoing a long message to leave ample space to promote the upcoming District Conference as registered attendance is quite low even though we are only three months away.  Remember that this conference is a great way to bring your family into Rotary as we will be at the largest indoor water park in the United States.  Additionally we are working hard to plan a concurrent youth conference that we are making available for only $200 per student.
