As we begin the new Rotary year, I would like to thank and applaud Immediate Past District Gover-nor, Jerome Bannister, for an amazing year. I appreciate the opportunity to have been his understudy and mentee. I will always be grateful for his help, support, encouragement, and friendship. We are a better District because of his service.
My club visits are off to a great start. As of the end of August, I have visited 23 of our 62 clubs. I am having so much fun meeting Rotarians across Middle and West Tennessee. While each club has been uniquely different, we are doing some amazing work and making a difference in our local communities and supporting projects around the word.
We have a busy year planned and I am so grateful for the hard work and support of our College of Governors, District Governor-Elect Robert Huffman, District Governor-Nominee April Lieberman, Assistant Governors and Coordinators, District Leaders and Committees, Club Presidents and Officers.
