Our special guest this past week was District Governor, Traci Sincock. DG Traci is from the Northville Rotary Club. T was her official visit to our club. District governors commit to visit every club in their district at least one time per year. That’s 50+ club visits. DG’s Traci’s visit was our opportunity to hear what is happening at the district level. It is also our opportunity to update DG Traci on the progress our club is making toward our goals for the 2022-23 Rotary year.
Here are some highlights that were discussed:
The responsibility of the District Governor is to be the bridge between Rotary International and the individual clubs. Communication is a two-way street between these two entities.
DG Traci explained that Rotary should be a safe place for people to come together in friendship and through community events, to better our neighborhoods.
New members should feel welcomed by all and have the desire to be of service to mankind.
We also discussed upcoming projects:
You are Loved, sleeping bag kits with warm items for the homeless, and financially insecure, to be distributed on Nov. 19, in Detroit.
Gift wrapping holiday gifts at the Methodist Children’s Home on December 12, 13, and 14th, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
Salvation Army Bell Ringing, Saturday, December 17th, Joe’s Produce, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, one-hour shifts.
The Board of Directors met briefly with DG Traci at the conclusion of the regular club meeting.
