Dear Green Bay Rotarians,
Last Monday we presented our third Community Service Award to Sgt. Tom Denney. Regrettably, I did not capture one of the many photographs that were taken during and after his presentation. But I have posted the press release picture above. Sometime social media doesn’t work as well as we would like!!
Our Green Bay Club has a number of individuals that serve beyond our club – providing service to District 6220 in addition to their regular club duties. For those new to Rotary, Rotarians are members of their clubs. The clubs are chartered by the global organization Rotary International (RI) headquartered in Evanston, Illinois. For administrative purposes, the more than 32,000 clubs worldwide are grouped into 529 districts and the districts are in 34 zones. Beginning July 1st, our new District 6220 Governor will be our own Steve Handrick. He will be assisted by ten Assistant Governors (AG), dividing our 41 clubs and our rather expansive District into ten Areas. District 6220 is bordered on the west by Minocqua, the east by Manistique and Kewanee, the south by Appleton and the north by Calumet. That’s a lot of territory to cover! Our own Larry Sarver has now agreed to be the AG covering Area 7 and including De Pere, Green Bay, Green Bay West, and Packerland Sunrise. Thanks Larry!!
Steve is not the first Green Bay Rotary Club member to serve in District Leadership. He was preceded by Diane Dappern (2016-2017), Tom Friese (2008-2009) and Tom Guyette (2000-2001). Great people, great service, thanks!
So why districts? – partly so clubs can share resources and work as a larger entity to provide services. For example, the district brings together future District leaders through the Rotary Youth Leadership Award. The District also services the District Project Fund and District Grants, the Global Grant Scholarships, and provides an annual District Conference where different clubs can join together to generate and share club’s successes.
Here’s hoping for some sunshine and warm weather to greet our week!
