As the new year starts, there are over 23 active U.S. Districts and many more clubs and supporters. Russia is “one district” covering 11 time zones.  There are 74 clubs and 2 e-clubs from eastern Europe to the Pacific Ocean.
The U.S. Russia ICC supports intercountry friendship exchanges, youth exchanges, Watch & Learn internships, joint medical projects, Peace poles/park benches, humanitarian projects and collaboration with other organizations.

GOVERNOR’S TRAVEL LOG
 

November 1st, 2020

As Pam and I wrap up our ninth week of travels around our district, we have seen so many beautiful parts of our great state and met so many incredibly special Rotarians.  From the eastern plains, where we wondered what the pioneers must have thought as they moved west, and then saw the Rocky Mountains, to the mountains themselves rising above the plains to the heavens above, and then to the magnificent plateaus and mesas of the western slope, all contained within our Rotary District, and all filled with Rotarians who believe whole heartedly in Service Above Self.  

It has been so heartwarming to visit with Rotarians that have been so instrumental to the well being of their communities through the myriad of programs designed to make life in their communities so much better.  Whether their programs help the local community or connect the world through peace and understanding, the dedication displayed by Rotarians and their clubs was utterly amazing and uplifting.  To all our new Rotarian friends, and to the wide variety of Rotary Clubs we have visited, thank you!   Please stay safe, stay healthy, and stay Rotary Strong!

 
Yours in Rotary Service,
 
Chip
 
Governor, Rotary District 5470
