Greetings from District Governor Jessika Hane 

Happy February Rotary Family!

As we head into the 2nd month of 2021, we have a lot to be thankful for. Most importantly the fact that many Rotary members in southern Indiana are eligible and beginning to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. I love how almost every club I visit has a Happy Dollar announcement from a Rotarian who just received their first or second dose. This is news worth celebrating!  We aren’t out of the woods yet though- mask wearing, hand washing and social distancing are still the keys to keeping ourselves and each other safe.

Thank you to the Club Presidents and Club Leadership for continuing to find ways to meet virtually and to hold hybrid meetings- you’ve been making it work and I’m so proud.  Virtual meetings mean that we can ALL participate in District events. If you know me- you know that my Rotary experience only got better, richer when I started attending District and International events. And because our upcoming events are Virtual, it’s never been easier to connect with Rotarians from all over.

I want to personally invite you to our Friends of the Rotary Foundation event on Friday Feb 26th. It’s on Zoom, starts at 7:30 EST and ends with a virtual social hour. More details below. Registration is now open.

Our virtual District Conference is ONE DAY ONLY on Saturday April 17. I’m going to award a special prize to the club that brings the highest percentage of members to the District Conference!!! More details and registration information coming soon.  I want to ask all of you to attend these events, bring a friend! I’ll be there and I promise to save you a (virtual) seat!
