Fellow Rotarians in District 5130 ...
I am honored to serve as your District Governor for the 2016-2017 Rotary year! Paula and I truly look forward to meeting you all during my club visits and hearing of all the great things you do to make your communities and this world a better place. Rotary Serving Humanity, our Rotary International President John Germ’s theme this year, is a perfect statement for what we do.
As Rotary evolves to remain relevant and effective in today’s ever-changing societies and the generations that drive them, Rotary’s leaders have adjusted traditional guidelines to allow clubs and their members more flexibility and more opportunity.
Member engagement, value propositions, and relevance are goals that clubs should be striving for, all of course while having incredible amounts of FUN!!!
2016-2017 marks a milestone year, with the 100 year anniversary of the Rotary Foundation. In addition, the Rotary International Convention returns to North America, with a huge celebration planned in Atlanta Georgia, June 10-14, 2017.
Finally, I urge you all to plan to gather and celebrate the good works of members and clubs in our district at my DisCon (district conference), May 12-14, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa & Casino in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe, NV. As I mentioned at PDG Erin’s conference in Napa this year, special rate room reservations for this are available now at
The actual conference registration will be available later.
See y’all on the trail!

Congratulations to Jennifer Strong - District 5130 Rotarian of the Year!
At the Rotary District 5130 Conference in Napa, Jennifer Strong was named Rotarian of the Year by District Governor Erin Dunn. Jennifer is the President of the Rotary Club of Lakeport, and she provided strong leadership for our District's quick response to last year's Valley Fire, which devastated over 75,000 acres in Lake County, killing at least four people.
