String of Deadly Tornadoes

A deadly string of tornadoes tore through parts of five states late Friday and early Saturday, bringing with them death, destruction, and heartache. Portions of Northeast Arkansas, Northwest Tennessee, Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and Southwest Kentucky were affected. As many as 100 lives may have been lost and property damage is widespread.

Many first responder organizations are likely to be heading that way, including: Red Cross; Disaster Aid USA; and Team Rubicon. Clubs in Districts 6150, 6060, 6760, 6510, and 6710 will need their help and yours to serve in recovery efforts. Disasters eventually impact all parts of our Zones. Expect further communications on how those of us blessed not to have been affected by this one can serve to help change the lives of those who were.

December Message - District Governor Doug Lind
Merry Christmas 5610 Rotarians!  It's hard to believe that December is upon us, and Christmas is right around the corner!  It seems like just a very short time ago when I was deep in the middle of my club visits and just getting settled into my new role.  I'm so grateful for the opportunity that you have all afforded me to serve you in this position.  As I've mentioned to many of you before, every club has its own personality and every Rotarian and her or his unique talents is a special gift to me!  As we turn the corner and prepare to begin the second half of our Rotary year, I want to take a moment and reflect on all the wonderful accomplishments that have happened in our district, in our organization, and in our lives, and say thank you to all who have served our clubs, our district and our organization to strive in making our world a better, healthier and happier place to live.  We are all so blessed to live in our district and our amazing country, and I know that we will all do whatever we can to help those less fortunate in this season of celebration and joy! As we prepare to begin the second half of our Rotary year, I ask that we all do so with a renewed vigor to continue to grow our District and our organization.  No one club or one individual can accomplish the task of growing our district, but if we all do our best to do our part in membership growth, and "each one bring one" , we will surely succeed beyond all expectations.  For those of you who have not yet started to work on your growth goals, there's plenty of time yet to make it happen, and it will certainly happen once you start!  Penny, Fancy, Gracie and I want to wish you all a Blessed and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and to always remember the reason for the season!
