Dear Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, and Friends of Rotary,
                In October I visited the following clubs: Mount Morris, Greece, Lima, Rochester Southeast, Penfield, Pittsford, Wellsville, Honeoye Lake, ROC City, Monroe County South, University of Rochester Rotaract, Canisteo, Irondequoit, and Waterloo.  We held our monthly Governor’s Tract meeting in Canandaigua, the Multi-District President-Elect Training Seminar planning meeting in Syracuse, the Leadership Development Seminar in Mount Morris, the District Strategic Planning Workshop Team meeting via conference call, the District Advisory Council meeting in Geneseo, the District Nominating Committee meeting in Canandaigua, the One Rotary Summit in Canandaigua, and the Council of Governors luncheon in Geneseo.  On World Polio Day I had the privilege of serving as master of ceremonies at Newark Rotary’s “Service Above Self” Awards Dinner, where Rotarian Pat Albrecht and Newark-Wayne Community Hospital were honored, and Red Jacket Rotarians Vern Hecker, Linda Hecker, and Rose Foster presented a check on behalf of their club for $2500 to the PolioPlus Campaign of The Rotary Foundation!  There was fun in fundraising with Geneseo Rotary’s Octoberfest, Ontario-Walworth’s Charities Dinner, East Rochester Rotary’s Annual Pasta Dinner, the Hope Hall Gala with Rochester AM Rotarians, Perry Rotary’s Craft Show Booth, the Laurel House Gala with Rotarians across Wayne County, and the Cash/Cline Benefit for Camp Haccamo.  Geneva Rotary was presented a certificate from Rotary International on October 16 marking the 100th Anniversary of their club being chartered, and Spencerport Rotary hosted a dinner for the Rotary Friendship Exchange team visiting from Brazil.
                November is The Rotary Foundation (TRF) month.  The Foundation is the vehicle for Rotary to do good in the world.  There are global grants, district grants, and the PolioPlus Campaign to eradicate polio.  I encourage “Every Rotarian, Every Year” to make a contribution to TRF.  Sustaining Members contribute $100 annually and Paul Harris Society Members $1000 each year.  TRF is a four-star charity, very worthy of your generosity.  Make sure your club is represented at the upcoming Grant Management Seminars so that every club qualifies to get some funding from TRF for projects in your community!
 Rotary Leadership Institute is on Saturday, November 16, from 7:30am-3:30pm at the RIT Inn & Conference Center, 5257 W Henrietta Rd., Henrietta.  The fee is $100, payable at the door.  Advance registration is requested at RLINEA.org   This is an informational seminar for all Rotarians.  I encourage you to attend.
As we approach the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend, give thanks for the opportunity to be a Rotarian, and make the most of that opportunity.
Travel safely,
DG Dave Hannan
  
A message from District Governor Dave Hannan.
(Well worth the read)
 
District Governor Dave Hannan and Pam HannanRotary Connects the World!
 
Rotary International President 2019-2020 Mark Daniel Maloney, from Decatur, AL, USA, introduced his theme for this Rotary year, “Rotary Connects the World,” in January while I was at the Rotary International Assembly for District Governors-Elect. 
 
Reflecting on that theme, I have asked myself, “What does that mean to the ‘rank and file’ Rotarian?”
 
Obviously, Rotary international leaders are traveling the globe and connecting, and club members who are active in The Rotary Foundation Global Grants process are connecting, but what about the rest of us?
It’s been another challenging Rotary Year and I’m proud to say that many of our club and district leaders rose to the occasion to help us tackle those challenges and make a difference in both our local and international communities. Our thanks go out to all of you who contributed to The Rotary Foundation leading to per capita giving of more than $100 for the District overall. Your generosity will help us fund even more global and local service projects. Please continue your generous giving into the future to continue supporting our six Areas of Focus. Your generosity will inspire others to do the same.
It is with great pleasure I announce that the District Nominating Committee has interviewed and chosen Janet Tenreiro of the Rotary Club of Canandaigua, New York as the District Governor Nominee Designate. Janet has graciously accepted the invitation to serve and has already begun her training as a member of the DG Track to serve as District Governor in the Rotary year 2021-2022.
 
Since joining the Canandaigua Rotary Club in 1996 she has served as Club Secretary, Program Chair, and Club President (04-05). Most recently Janet is serving as Assistant Governor for Area 6 which includes the Canandaigua, Clifton Springs, Gorham, Red Jacket and Victor/Farmington Rotary Clubs.
 
An Open Letter to All Members of Rotary District 7120.
 
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
 
When Jo and I visited each of your clubs, I asked you to consider making a commitment to put aside at least 30 cents ($.30) each day toward your annual Rotary Foundation Giving. Doing the math this comes to $39.90 as of November 10, 2018, but I would prefer to think of the approaching holiday of Thanksgiving as a milestone which would bring the amount to $43.50.

Rotary is leading the way to eradicate polio

Rotary has led the fight to eradicate polio from our earth for the past 34 years. We are "this close."  We have partnered with the World Health Organization, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and governments to give the vaccine to billions of children. To see what we have accomplished so far and what we still must do please go to the End Polio Now website by clicking here.
