From the Governor's Desk
welcome april!
April 2022 is upon us.  For me, April means Spring, flowers, gorgeous weather, baseball, my broken March Madness bracket, picnics, outdoor activities – it’s just a really excellent month!  
April also marks Maternal and Child Health month for Rotary which spotlights Rotary projects around the world that expand access to quality care, so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger. Nearly 6 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation.
The Rotary Foundation and you are making a difference in the lives of countless mothers and children!  Thank you, for all that you do.
On another note, our District Celebration is next month.  I look forward to seeing you there.
Yours in Rotary,
Governor Russell

Lots of Rotarians have shown up the last couple of months to bring the Wetland Peace Preserve closer to our vision. In February, volunteers planted riparian cuttings and wrapped trees, while March found Rotarians weeding and mulching the saplings we had planted last fall. On another track, the WPP advisory committee is preparing for the city approval process.
