District Governor Stresses Membership Growth
James "Jim" Cupper, district governor for Rotary District 6360 reminded members of the great work of Rotarians around the world. He mentioned a few of his favorites: peace fellowships, Rotary Youth Exchange and global project like polio eradication, health education, clean water, maternal health and microlending. He pointed out how all these efforts are moving the globe to Rotary’s new vision:   Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
 
He asked the club to meet a goal of 5% net growth in membership.  The district will hold a workshop to develop promotional materials to help reach the goal.
 
Don’t forget to register for District Conference which will be held May 16-18, 2019 at Mission Point Resort on Mackinaw Island.  Special room rates are available.
 
An Invocation Worth Remembering
President Joseph Taylor has been stressing invocations that are all inclusive.  He decided to provide an example as follows:
Let us take a moment to remember all the religions represented in the Rotary family throughout the world. Let us also recall that when we were invited to join our Rotary clubs we were not asked, “Are you a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Jew, a Buddhist, or a Sikh?” We were not asked because all religions are welcome in the Rotary family.
Please join me in a moment of reflection and thanks: With our friends beside us, And no person beneath us, With the bonds of Rotary between us, And our worries behind us, With our goals before us, And no task beyond us, With a thirst for knowledge, And a dream of a Polio-free world, We are thankful for our Rotary friends and the time we are about to share.  Amen.
