Where Does the Time Go?
When I started this year, I thought I’d be able to regularly update this column. Not so! Turns out that communicating regularly can be a challenge. My appreciation to all of you who are successful at doing that!
Soon it will be time to go to Indianapolis for the International Convention, and another 100th celebration. Our own District Convention is fast approaching as well. Shall I see you there? I hope so!
As I write this, the Eliminate Project has reached the $80M mark. Only $30M in pledges and donations are needed to complete the project. I want to give a personal thanks to every individual and club who has given to the Eliminate Project this year in support of the Governor's Project. Eliminate District Chair Marv Amundson tells me we’re up around $13K so far. I hope you all know just how cool you really are!
Bylaws and Policies
We have been working on the mundane stuff of governance: updating the district bylaws is done and they are ready for your review. Clubs should be getting the opportunity to review these new bylaws in preparation for the district convention in August.
Policies are next. It’s important stuff, even if it’s a tad bit boring to read. I can tell you, that when good company, a pot of coffee and a lava cake are available, policies are a whole lot easier to work on.
