District Governor Santhana Naidu 

Dear Rotary Family,
 
As I have observed over the last month what our clubs are doing to cope with this pandemic, one thing was very apparent to me – I have never been more proud to be a Rotarian! Instead of letting this virus dictate our core values and future, Rotarians in our district (and around the world) are putting service above self and are tackling the difficulties creatively and aggressively. It is admirable to see so many of our clubs find ways to meet virtually, check in on senior and new Rotarians, and help each other. Rotarians are also using this situation creatively to invite speakers and guests to our virtual meetings from all over the world. We had a virtual district leadership meeting recently that had over 20 clubs represented and almost all of them are meeting virtually, whether it is a regular club meeting or just a happy hour. Thank you for being a part of Rotary and making a difference at such a critical time.
 
Yours In Rotary Service,
Santhana

We regret to announce that the Rotary International Convention, scheduled for 6-10 June 2020, in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, has been canceled in response to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus. We are sorry that we will not see you in Honolulu this year, but this decision is necessary to protect the health of everyone involved. Learn more under the 'Rotary Links' tab, above.
