As Rotary District 6980 Governor, I am excited by the upcoming Rotary year in Central Florida. Our District covers Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Sumter Counties. We are the only land locked Rotary District in Florida. There are about 2,000 Rotarians in our district.
Our VISION statement states that the District will be Member healthy, Rotary educated and Community/Globally sound.
Rotary International is composed of 1.2 million Rotarians in 34,000+ clubs around the world. Rotary encourages community leaders to exchange ideas to improve their local and global communities. Rotary International has partnered with the World Health Organization for the eradication of Polio. Our mission is so profound that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has joined our efforts.
This year's theme is "Light Up Rotary" which was selected by Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang. This will be accomplished by sharing our service, strengthening our clubs and letting our light shine in our communities. Join our Rotarians as we Light up our communities and eradicate Polio. We are dedicated men and women with a common goal. SERVICE ABOVE SELF- Our Rotary Motto
