Hurricane Dorian - Bahamas

Dorian hit Grand Bahama and Abaco Island on Sept 3rd. with devastating 180 mph winds making 70,000 people homeless and creating a death toll that continues to grow.

Currently the Fund is supporting the delivery of food, toiletries and medical supplies. As the islands move towards recovery, the Fund will purchase fans, generators, trucks, buses, and building supplies. Donations can be made directly to the Robbins Fund Inc. by check sent to RI D6990, 2110 N. Ocean Blvd, #703, Fort Lauderdale FL 33305, or online via Pay Pal or debit/credit card.

2022-23 District Governor Nominations

The time has come to begin the nominating process for our District Governor 2022-23.  This will continue our three-year projection for District 7390’s leadership.
Every club has an outstanding leader who could be a potential District Governor. Look around and ask yourself, who is that person in our club? It is the person who is a good leader, interested, involved, gives financially to Rotary and The Rotary Foundation and is helpful to other members. Is it me? We all need to give encouragement and “plant the seed” for others to move forward. I encourage you to think about yourself or other club members that would make a great District Governor! You may suggest a Rotarian from another Club so long as you first obtain agreement from the Club where the candidate is a member.
The District Governor is the officer of RI in the District, functioning under the general control and supervision of the RI Board. The Governor has responsibility for organizing new Clubs; strengthening existing Clubs; promoting membership growth; supporting The Rotary Foundation; planning and presiding at the District Conference, PETS and District Training Assembly; issuing a monthly newsletter; focusing attention on important Rotary issues; motivating Rotarians to participate in service activities; recognizing the outstanding contributions of Rotarians in the District; and many other responsibilities. The candidate should be aware of the qualifications, duties and responsibilities of a District Governor and must demonstrate willingness, commitment and ability (physically and otherwise) to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the office of Governor.     
Suggestions for District Governor Nominee 2022-23 must be received in the District Office by December 13, 2019 to be considered by the Nominating Committee. Interviews for the 2022-23 District Governor will be held Thursday, January 9, 2020 at the Byrnes Health Education Center in York. 
Contact the District Office or DG Paddy Rooney with questions about nominating a candidate for District Governor!

Supplies collected enable schools to provide students with items that motivate learning. Donations range from pencils, pens, erasers, and book bags, to snacks for the younger students and supplies for the nursing staff. The Littlestown Rotary appreciated the people and businesses who support children and families through the school supplies drive.
