We in Rotary aspire to great deeds. We admire those who gave great gifts to humanity: Abraham Lincoln, who gave the gift of human dignity to the downtrodden; Mother Teresa, who gave the gift of compassion to the forgotten; Mahatma Gandhi, who gave the gift of peaceful change to the oppressed. Their very lives became gifts to the world.

We can be inspired by their example. We can be inspired to ask, how can I, in the life that I live – without neglecting the responsibilities that are so dear to me – how can I, too, become a gift to the world? As I considered my theme, I thought of...

 
 
 

Greetings fellow Rotarians!  

As I near the end of my term as your District Governor, people keep asking me if I'm looking forward to having the coveted addition of "Past" to my title. I seriously tell them that actually this has been a great year! While I admit it will be nice to have a little more spare time, I have truly enjoyed every minute of being the governor, from the club visits to the district conference to working in developing the next generation of leaders, it has all been a blast! However, there are a few things I will miss...

 
THE TOP TEN THINGS I'LL MISS ABOUT BEING DISTRICT GOVERNOR:
#10 The band playing Hail to the Chief when I walk into the room.
#9 Rubber chicken dinners
#8 People not answering their phones when they see my number on the caller ID
#7 Wearing the tiara, because it goes so well with my governor’s jacket
#6 Blaine addressing me as “Your Royal Highness”
#5 I can stop answering my phone “Light up Rotary, this is Michelle!”
#4 Travel to exotic locations, like Gage, and Cleveland
#3 Emails…. So many emails!
#2 Can finally change my ringtone away from the Rotary song.
And the #1 thing I’ll miss about being District Governor…  No More Happy Clap!
 
It has been an honor and a privilege to help you "Light Up Rotary"!
