This week we had our annual visit from our District Governor.  This years District 6400 District Governor is John Chambers.
John Chambers has a been a Detroit AM Rotarian since 2004 and has participated on numerous mission trips to countries such as Nicaragua and Haiti.  These trips have had a profound impact on him and he believes that Rotarians should step outside their comfort zones.  For example, on one medical trip, he worked as an assistant to a dental hygienist. (Not his profession).
This year’s RI motto is Rotary Connects the World and the two goals of the RI President is to increase membership and involve families.  Mr. Chambers believes that our District is taking active steps to increase membership by bringing potential new members to meetings, starting a new club, and having an “E Club” (meets online).  He also believes that Rotarians should involve their families by bringing them to meetings and having them participate in service projects. 
The District Governor asked President Judy for nominees to receive a “Do The Right Thing” certificate that he would present.  Through a blind Club board vote, Mike Carmody was the deserving recipient for his work on the GP Library tool collection, the tot lot, and as Executive Secretary.
This year’s District Conference takes place from 5/15/20 to 5/17/20 at Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, OH.  To register, go to
