Dear Fellow Rotarians,
Looking ahead, the Rotary convention will be extra special as we celebrate the centennial of The Rotary Foundation in the city where it was born. I hope you’ll join me in Atlanta, 10-14 June 2017, to look back proudly at a century of being people of action and serving humanity - and look ahead to the challenges Rotary will tackle in the century to come.
Yours in service,
Jeffery M. Orth, ChFC, CASL
DISTRICT GOVERNOR 2016-2017
