Club members Dawn Magretta, Tammy Bonifield, Sharon Pommerville, Nancy Darga, Claude Kendrick, John Clay, Mike Ladwig, and Bill Friske attended the Rotary District Leadership Assembly in Plymouth. We heard from District Governor-elect Traci Sincock who welcomed us to the first "live" District Leadership Assembly in three years. We heard a rousing keynote address from Mary Jean Gallagher, who spoke to the positive areas of Rotary and that we should not be afraid of embracing new ideas and novel ways in the future. Ms. Gallagher's words could be summed up in her closing quote,
"We are angels of hope for our club members, communities, and the world."
There were three 50-minute breakout sessions dealing with subjects such as Grant Writing, DACdb, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Membership, Fundraising, Rotary's Action Plan for Club Success, and Hybrid Meeting Technology (co-presented by our own Bill Friske). Bill did us proud with his concise, thoughtful presentation. There was an aura of positive vibrations from all the like-minded attendees.
