From the Governor's Desk
Governor's Goodbye
 

On July 1st I will step down as your 2019-20 District Governor.  What a great experience this has been and what a joy it has been for me to be part of such a wonderful year of service and fellowship.  Serving as Governor truly has been an honor and a privilege.  I will remember these days for the rest of my life. As I think back this year on all the service that I have seen given by everyone in this District I am humbled beyond words to try and describe or appropriately recognize all your efforts.  

I know it is nice to be singled out and thanked for a job well done, but there isn’t time to mention every dedicated club president, every hard working committee, or describe every wonderful service project or every heavy heart that has been lifted by the good deeds that has been done because you Rotarians say YES to service.  Neither should it be our desire to serve simply to gain praise or favor. 
 
We serve because there are others in need and we are in a position to help. Someone one recently said, "If I give $20 to a man on the street and he uses that money to drink or buy drugs, that is not my concern.  I give because it is my choice and giving makes me a better person."   Rotary lets us all have the opportunity to give and serve.  That process of giving and serving in Rotary is what makes us each a better person. 
 
See you at our NEXT service project!
 
Sincerely,
 
GOVERNOR RICH

Rich Kirkham, '19-'20 District 5400 Governor

 

UPCOMING FUNDRAISERS
emmett youth benefit dinner & auction
has been rescheduled to Sept 19,2020
Due to the current health concerns for our community, and recommendations of the CDC, the 2020 Emmett Rotary Youth Benefit Dinner and Auction has been POSTPONED.  It will now be held on September 19, 2020 at the Gem County Fairgrounds.
 
We are excited to announce that the flamingos will continue to flock our Sponsor businesses throughout the next few months as we continue to let others know YOU support our youth!
 
Meanwhile, youth groups will continue to sell Raffle tickets until right before the auction.  This is a great opportunity for each to earn money for their group.  The youth groups get 50 cents for each raffle ticket they sell.  That profit is over and above what the group has requested from the actual auction funds.
 
Thank you for your support of this event that funds activities for the youth of Gem County.  We still have room for Sponsors at $500 which includes dinner for six, free raffle tickets, free bucket draw tickets and entry into a drawing for $600. Individual tickets are available at $60 each by contacting Kathy at klrainbow49@gmail.com.  We look forward to seeing you on September 19. 
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Buck, 208-369-1785 or klrainbow49@gmail.com.
