Greetings from District Governor Lance Eberle!
Greetings District 6580 Rotarians!
As we approach Rotary Fellowship Month, it is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the remarkable bonds and global connections that define our Rotary community. As I write this article, Rotarians from all corners of the world are coming together to celebrate the spirit of fellowship and frendships at the Rotary International Conference in Melbourne, Australia.
Rotary Fellowship Month shows us the power of human connection, outweighing our geographic boundaries and cultural differences. It is a time when Rotarians engage in various activities that promote peace, cultural understanding, and the exchange of ideas. These activities foster goodwill and strengthen our ties that bind us as we work towards creating a positive change in the world.
During the month of June, let us reflect on what the Rotary Clubs in our District have organized in terms of events and initiatives. Many of our clubs perform fellowship through their service projects and host golf tournaments or other types of events that Rotarians can get together. Some of our clubs host special meetings to focus on fellowship, like a 5:31 club or hosting an annual picnic or meeting at a park or a local children’s museum. Most importantly, let's not forget to include all of our families in our fellowship activities. Family is important to Rotary because Rotary is an organization that values and promotes strong family bonds and recognizes the crucial role that families play in supporting Rotarians in their service to the community.
As we head into Rotary Fellowship month, let us celebrate the connections we have made and the friendships we have deepened. These relationships are the building blocks of our Rotary family and the key to our success as we continue to make a positive impact in our communities.
Let us keep in mind that the spirit of fellowship extends beyond the month of June. It is a guiding principle that infuses everything we do as Rotarians. Let us remain committed to nurturing these connections, embracing diversity, and fostering an inclusive environment within our clubs and communities.
May our connections grow stronger, friendships deepen, and our collective efforts inspire lasting change in the world.
Thank you for all of your service.
In Rotary Service,
District 6580 Governor 2022-2023
