'16-'17 District Directory being delivered TO CLUBS

By Pat and Skip Doyle


Our assistant district governors are busy during these days before the holidays delivering copies of the District 7910 2016-2017 Directory to club officers (see below). The Directory is full of Rotary information, club officers and meeting times and locations, a complete membership directory, and contact information for Rotary International officers and committee chairs. There are ads for member businesses, pieces of Rotary trivia, and tidbits about the upcoming Quadcon - the Multi-District Conference next April in Providence. We can all thank Immediate Past District Governor Jim Fusco for putting this comprehensive Directory together and shepherding it through the printing process. It was truly a labor of love. Thank you, Jim! 
Last week, we attended our district's first meeting of  Rotary Means Business, and it was a dynamic event. The more than 30 attendees were engaged  from the moment they arrived. We heard so many positive comments from everyone there. Thank you to Ron Bott, chair of the District Rotary Means Business Committee, and his fellow committee members as well as District Governor-Nominee Steve Sager, District Governor-Nominee-Designate Pam Anastasi for a job well done. In case you missed this first meeting, there will be another one on January 25 in the Newton/Waltham area. To learn more, click here.
Please send us photos of your club's events during this season of giving. We hear so many wonderful stories of the good deeds you are all doing. We would love to fill the newsletter in the next couple of weeks with pictures of all you do. E-mail your club's event photos to newsletter Editor Jim Fusco at jim.fusco2@gmail.com.
Happy Holidays!

Our District Food Packaging Event on November 12 at the Solomon Pond Mall in Marlborough was a solid success.
More than 100 volunteers from around the district packaged 20,000 meals, which will be sent to Haiti to help feed the children left homeless by the hurricane. These volunteers were Rotarians and their friends and families, young and old There were Interactors from local clubs, passersby who wanted to help and past and present participants of Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. We raised more than $4,000 toward our goal of $5,000 - so we are still actively seeking donations.
Always remember, you can call us with questions at 508-393-9031.
