District Governor Message
The year 2014 – 15 promises to be one of great excitement and accomplishment. The promise arrives out of my reading of the extraordinary potential the Club Leaders – Presidents, Secretaries and other officers of clubs like yours - have so clearly exhibited at the various events of the training cycle.
As you start the journey of this great adventure of leading a Rotary club let me also remind you of our commitment to certain avowed goals that we set for ourselves for the year 2014-15. The prominent ones among the goals that we worked to establish are the Happy Villages; T.E.A.C.H mission; Major Community Initiatives; Massive Tree Plantation; Free Surgeries to the Poor; New Clubs; New Rotaract, Interact and RCCs; a District Conference that will be remembered forever and each Rotarian supporting the Rotary Foundation.
