It's October, and a lot is going on in the world of Rotary. This month is economic and community development month, which I know many of our clubs heavily focus on in their area.
Don't forget that October 24th is World Polio Day, and it's not too late to organize an event for your club. If you'd like some ideas and materials, you can visit the End Polio Now toolkit found at I challenge each of us to donate that day; even if it is just $10, the added Bill & Melinda Gates contribution will triple your donation.

Thank you, Perry Rotary, for inviting me to speak as part of your first-ever hybrid meeting this past month! I look forward to visiting each of the clubs virtually and ask that you please reach out if you have not done so already. I am happy to help with any tips for a hybrid or fully online meeting.
Finally, I wanted to share a big thank you to the following Rotarians, who recently took the time out of their busy life to attend an Emerging Leaders Summit hosted by Zones 30 and 31.  Brittany Atauvich - Ponca City, Laura Nauman - OKC Midtown, Kelli Seacat & Deena Fisher - Woodward, Gareth Williams - OKC Sunrise, and Jonna Herbert - West Oklahoma City! We have a fantastic group of Rotarians in our District, and I am always so impressed by the dedication, and I am honored to serve alongside you. Stay in touch and be well!
