Garrettsville-Hiram Rotarians met in the Hiram College Dining Hall on October 21, 2013 to hear from District 6630 Governor Bob Johnson of the Middlefield-Burton Rotary Club; Assistant Governor George Schumacher of the Aurora Rotary Club was also in attendance. They made announcements of events upcoming on November 3 at Doogans in Aurora and on November 9 at the DoubleTree Hilton East in Beachwood (This is a Grand Foundation Event).
District Governor Johnson outlined some of the emphases to be coming in Rotary programs, including membership efforts, grant management—local project focus, choosing host families for student exchanges early, rapid changes in exchange programs, new look of international projects with sustainability highlighted—health, water, literacy, Polio Plus, etc.– a new, simplified district strategic plan, new emphasis on youth, changing formats, new IT dimensions, new demographics. The world rushes on.
Locally, the Reverse Raffle looms and tickets are out.
Club members may attend student exchange interviews; seeking interested families for hosting exchange students.
