Annual PDG Lunch

One of the traditions of District 5040 is to hold an annual lunch for the Rotary International Past Officers (PDGs) hosed by the Governor Elect. We held the lunch on April 5, 2010. This is an opportunity for the Governor and Governor Elect to update the PDGs on the state of the district and plans for the next year.

DG Gordon Dalglish gave an update on how well the district is doing, which is very well other than membership. Membership development continues to be our district’s major challenge.
I was able to outline the changes that RI President elect Ray Klinginsmith has made and plans to make during the next Rotary year. RIPE Ray will visit District 5040 on September 29, 2010. The major goal for our district in 2010-11 is to implement The Rotary Foundation future vision plan as a pilot district. The training for this is well underway.

t is good to have the advice, counsel and encouragement from those who’s footsteps I follow.
