District Governor Visit - Dec 8, 2012

Rotary has over 500 Districts and each District has it's own Governor.  Our District 5240 Governor is Frank Ortiz.  Every District governor is an officer of Rotary International and must visit each club in his District.  District Governor Ortiz has 75 clubs which he must visit and each with a visit to the Club's Board of Directors as well as address each club.  This frequently involves attending receptions, celebrations and fund raisers for clubs as much as a 3-4 drive hours away from the Governor's home.  That can mean over 200 trips in a six month period!  That is a huge undertaking and every Governor is to be admired and congratulated for their commitment to Rotary.

This year, the first E-club in D5240, One World Rotary, presents new and unique problems for Governor Ortiz.  The Board of Directors of One World Rotary has seven of it's twelve members living outside of California, with four outside of the USA!  That meeting was held by a video conferencing system with about ten additional club members attending. 

Governor Frank also held the traditional physical meeting with One World Rotary club with only seven members of the club attending with some driving as much as six hours round trip to attend.  We appreciate Governor Ortiz's effort and commitment.  Please go to the following link to watch the governor's presentation to our club, One World Rotary,

Thanks for the help of members; Cindy, Donna, Richard R., Marty, Lori and George.
