District Governor's Corner
Governor’s Column (September 2018)
September seems to have blown by all of us and the days are now getting shorter, but the sun continues to shine especially on District 6650.  Literacy was our September monthly Rotary  theme and I hope that you took some time to strengthen such efforts in your club projects and communities.  I'm just back from the final Rotary Zones 28/29 Leadership Institute held in Erie, PA, as we are moving to Zone 30 next year.  The Institute provided training for the District Governor, District Governor-Elect and District Governor Nominee, and several PDG's joined us as well.  The speaker line-up was superb with inspirational speakers sharing education projects in Afghanistan, human trafficking issues in India, and other service opportunities closer to home.  I've been enjoying club visits which are the best part of being District Governor and getting to know your clubs, your Rotarians and your communities.  I encourage all of you to consider district leadership roles in the future.
As we look to October, I hope that you will focus your efforts on holding a World Polio Day Event on or around World Polio Day on October 24.  Ideas are available at  In 1988, there were 350,000 new cases of polio reported annually, and in 2018 there have been 18 so far.  While this 30 year effort by Rotary will continue until the disease is eradicated, we are very close to making that happen.  Please help to get Rotary over the finish line!  
Additionally, please make every effort to attend the Tri-District Membership Summit on Sunday, October 21 from 1:00-5:00 pm in Wooster.  This is an opportunity for you to meet with Rotary International membership staff to learn how we can share ideas and strengthen our clubs.

For the past few years, I have created a video to display at each club in November. Please reserve 10 minutes at a meeting to show the inspiring video of local and global projects of The Rotary Foundation. This year’s video will highlight the Military Family Center. Envelopes will be provided for donations to The Foundation, and a donor will have a chance to win a Paul Harris Fellow recognition for themselves or another. You can view past videos with Tim and Anna here:
October 24 is World Polio Day which was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against the poliomyelitis virus. We have come such a long way toward eradication of this devastating disease. Check out: for ideas to celebrate and raise awareness for your clubs. Consider donations which I will process if you forward to me or you can utilize the form at this link:
