District Governor Message - Dec 2017

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Cheryl and I wish all the district 6910 Rotarians a safe and wonderful Holiday season. As we look toward 2018 we are hopeful that a polio free world is literally within our grasp. In 2013 there were 416 wild polio cases in the world. This year there have been 17 wild polio cases reported. Six cases were in Pakistan and 11 were in Afghanistan. We will drop to zero and thank you for playing a part in eradicating this disease. 

We are number 1….All others are number two or lower!
On November 30, 2017 district 6910 had the most net new members in the United States and Canada. While that fact is amazing, we still have much to do in growing our clubs. Attached you will find the net increase for all clubs. Through December 21, 2017 the top ten clubs for net member percentage increase since July 1, 2017 are:

Rotary E-Club of the South 31.5%
Banks County 26.6%
Washington 26.3%
Green Putnam County 20.5%
Columbia County West 18.2%
Lanier-Forsyth 17.2% 
Gwinnett Sunrise 16.7%
Peachtree Corners 16.6%
Lake-Chatuge-Hiawassee 16.0%
