District 6630 Rotarians, 
Two for One!
April and May each Rotary year are jam packed with speech contests, District Conference, and so many service projects and events around the District. We combined these two months to form this one newsletter.
May was Youth Service Month

April's Rotary International’s theme was the environment. Rotarians are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment. They empower communities to access grants and other resources, embrace local solutions, and spur innovation in an effort to address the causes and reduce the effects of climate change and environmental degradation.

A great big thank you and much appreciation to all who came out and supported our District Conference in April, especially our dedicated committee, under the leadership of Bob Oborn,  DGN, Stow-Munroe Falls Rotarian and all around fun guy! 
April and May were highlighted by visits to Wadsworth Rotary, celebrating 100 years with the Geneva Club, Judging the District Speech Contest, attending Cuyahoga Falls Rotary Flavours of the Falls and Aurora Rotary Taste of Aurora, unveiling a new beer at Hoppin' Frog to benefit Akron Rotary Camp, attending Lakewood-Rocky River Sunrise Run for the Roses, and volunteering at Akron Rotary Moms for Moms at the Akron Children's Museum. 
I'm looking forward to sharing my adventures with you from International Convention in Singapore with a quick stop on my way in Thailand in my next article. 
In Rotary Service,
Julie Brandle, District Governor 6630
