District 6630 Rotarians and friends,
At the 2021 Multi-District Conference of Clubs, we celebrated your exemplary Service Above Self during the challenges brought on by the world-wide pandemic.
698 people from the four districts and beyond registered. Being virtual there was no charge and everyone who registered received a T-shirt to wear in celebration.
On Saturday morning the four districts covering Northeast, Northwest, Southwest, and Central/Southeast Ohio presented a program specific to their Districts.  I highlighted how District 6630 Rotarians and clubs continued to lead by responding to the many challenges and opportunities the pandemic provided.  Rotarians stepped up to help those in need   Click here to watch the video of my presentation.

At the annual meeting:
  • By-Laws were amended and the Financial Report for 2018-19 was ratified and the 2019-20 Financial Report was approved. These are on the District website (login required)

District 6630 Rotarians created opportunities by adapting and pivoting throughout this year.  You continued in fellowship and service and made a difference in the lives of others.  I am so proud to serve with each and every one of you.
Yours in Rotary Service,
