Sharing the wonderful things our clubs have accomplished, Inspiring Rotarians to more, Recognizing the great accomplishments clubs like yours have achieved this year and Celebrating the IMPACT of the 59 clubs and 3605 members in District 6690! The program will include fun sessions in the areas of:

Our keynote speaker for the evening will be none other than fellow Rotarian basketball legend, Olympic gold medalist and NBA champion Bill Hosket. Bill’s sense of humor and sharing his experiences on and off the court as they relate to Rotary are sure to be entertaining.

This year we are also bringing back the District Governor Awards to recognize clubs of all sizes accomplishments in the areas of Membership, Public Image Initiatives, New Generations. Community Service, World Service and The Rotary Foundation and Polio Plus.

Please plan on joining your fellow District 6690 Rotarians for a day full of fellowship, learning, sharing, inspiring, recognizing and celebrating Rotary District 6690’s Impact !
