District 7390 Rotarian Educators Summit

As I traveled the district in my year as District Governor year, I realized five things:
  1. There are many more passionate member Rotarians who have chosen Education as a Vocation than I ever realized.
  2. There are many other vocations represented by passionate Rotarians across our district.
  3. There is great work being done by many, if not most of the clubs across the district focused on those vocations.
  4. Much of what is being done in the clubs is not shared across the district.
  5. We can do a better job of sharing and learning from each other.
This invitation is the first of many more to come focused on sharing our ideas through Vocational Summits which will begin to help foster Rotary’s four strategic priorities of increasing our impact, expanding our reach, increasing member engagement and remain adaptable and relevant.  

It's time. We can only continue to perpetuate and GROW the Service we provide IF we continue to GROW and ENGAGE our Membership. We MUST be purposeful about our Growth. Each of us. Seek the right people.... people who are Rotarians... but just don't know it yet.

It's time to act.

It's time to Grow Rotary and ENGAGE our members again.
Are you with me?

Join Rotary Means Business on August 17th! 

In partnership with the Rotary District 7390 RMB Steering Committee, the Rotary Clubs of Carlisle and Carlisle Sunrise will host the 62nd RMB in-person networking meeting on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 thus restarting RMB in our district.  This will be the first RMB in-person meeting since the COVID-19 pandemic hit full force in March 2020. 
The meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 17 at the Frederick House on 219 N Hanover Street, Carlisle, PA from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.  Thanks to our Major Sponsor Hoffman Funeral Home and Crematory the event will be FREE and will have light refreshments consisting of hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, soft drinks and water.
Mark your calendars and register at so you can restart old connections and make new ones.  Bring family of Rotary and potential Rotarian guests so they can see the value RMB adds to Rotary. 
Remember given the trust that living by the Four Way Test engenders, the purpose of RMB is that Rotarians should help fellow Rotarians by doing business with them and referring others to them in order to build stronger businesses, stronger communities, stronger members, stronger Rotary Foundation, stronger clubs, and ultimately a stronger Rotary International.
Thank you to our Sponsor: Hoffman Funeral Homes

Mental Health Professional Needed for District Crisis Management Planning

Rotary International requires that all Rotary Districts have a Crisis Management Plan in place that provides a protocol for the process by which Districts would respond to real or perceived emergencies when they arise.  It is essential that we do our best to be prepared to respond to any risky situations that pose serious risks to student and volunteer health, safety, and security – as well as the district’s reputation. any disasters impacting Rotarians or the public during Rotary hosted events.   Our District is currently in the planning stage focused on a Youth Crisis Management Plan to prepare for our incoming International Rotary Exchange Students.  We are looking for a Mental Health Professional willing to donate their time to providing insight into the necessary language for such a plan.  Although a Rotarian is preferred it is not essential.  Please contact Jill Tenny, Chair, District 7390 Youth Exchange, if you or someone you know is interested.  Email:

Show Your Appreciation to Health Care Workers August 21-27!

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, health care workers have dedicated their time, energy, and skills to ensure our safety. As they provided vaccinations, administered tests, tracked outbreaks, and cared for patients, they sometimes put their health at risk to do so.
With the pandemic far from over, we have an opportunity to show our appreciation for them. From 21-27 August, Rotary International is asking all Rotarians to recognize the work of health care professionals in communities around the globe.  Find ways to show health care workers your appreciation at
