District Governor’s Message


Greetings 5160!


We have talked a lot this year about partnerships and collaboration — working together with other Rotary and Rotaract clubs and members, community organizations, local governments and individuals to create more impactful projects.

Collaboration brings other ideas, perspectives, skills and resources to our work to allow us to develop better solutions.

I have been excited and proud to see all of the great projects and initiatives that have arisen from these partnerships including the WASH project with District 5130; the Solano Clubs coming together to support the Wings over Solano Airshow by serving food to sponsors’ and supporters and clubs adopting the Good Characters Awards program. We have provided dictionaries to elementary school students; built playgrounds; delivered food to seniors; cleaned up our communities; and provided Tutudesks for students in Africa.

I had a great time working with fellow Rotarians at Wings over Solano, and I hope that you will invite me to your upcoming service project or fundraiser so I can work with your Club to make our world a better place!

I look to seeing you at the Field of Rotary Dreams District Conference! Plans are being finalized and our team won’t be complete without you.

2023-24 RI President Gordon McInally asks us to come together to reduce the stigma of mental health issues and access to care. If I sprained my ankle, I wouldn’t think twice about asking you to take me to the emergency room but many who experience mental health challenges suffer in silence for fear of being judged or rejected.Our clubs have created a safe space that allows us to be our authentic selves while together we celebrate our successes and support one another in tough times. We need to be comfortable asking each other the question “How are you?” followed by “How are you REALLY?”.  And, even more importantly, we need to create a space so all are comfortable sharing a truthful answer.

Thank you for your commitment, your energy, and your service. I am incredibly lucky to have the privilege of serving with an amazing team of leaders, Rotarians and Rotaractors this year.

GO TEAM 5160!!
