District Governor’s Message

Greetings 5160!


Rotary celebrates Basic Education and Literacy Month in September. I had the privilege of visiting two clubs this month and participating in activities that support the theme of education. First, I visited the Rotary Club of Red Bluff and participated in the presentation of the Student of the Month award. And, as a part of my visit to the Rotary Club of Dunsmuir, I had the privilege of attending the dedication of a Peace Pole at the Dunsmuir Elementary School. If you haven’t experienced a Peace Pole, it displays the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in different languages on each of its sides. What a great way to educate our children and ourselves about positive peace and spread the word about Rotary’s seven areas of focus.

Economic and Community Development

Thank you for your commitment, your energy, and your service. Between now and the end of September, I will have the opportunity to visit 19 clubs up and down the district. I look forward to meeting with Rotarians in their communities. If there is anything you need, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

 GO TEAM 5160!!

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!!
