District Governor's Message
By: DG Marion Cheney, Dover RC
As this Rotary year ends. I want to thank all of you who helped me navigate through our district.  It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your District Governor.
I‘ve had the opportunity to personally witness the wonderful things our clubs accomplish and the dedicated Rotarians throughout our district.  I learned early on the size of the membership and the coffers don’t have to be large to serve in extraordinary ways.
I encourage all our clubs to share their accomplishments and vision for 2024-2025 at our June 29th District Celebration on Star Island Isles of Shoals. All of our clubs will have a chance to showcase their club’s projects and programs.
The Ferry leaves Portsmouth at 8:50 AM and we asked you to arrive by 8:15AM.
The one-hour narrated trip is the beginning of a 7-hour adventure. You will arrive on the island at 9:50. Grab a hot beverage and treat and head to the meeting.
The welcome, roll call, and business meeting will start at 10.
Drew Kessler, will give the keynote address.  He will be followed by Gregg Dowty and our Poland Outreach Team.  They will give an update on their recent trip.
Our Foundation Forum participants, Marty Helman, Mike McGovern, Drew Kessler and Facilitator Dave Underhill will be giving updates regarding the Share Forever Challenge.
Then participants will have some free time to tour the island, play tennis, corn hole, swim, kayak or chill and enjoy the scenery.
We end the day with a changeover and warm goodbyes.
If you are planning to stay in the Portsmouth area, please make reservations ASAP.  Hotels fill quickly in the summer.
Cost is $45.00 per person and that includes round trip on the ferry, welcome reception, business meeting. buffet lunch, changeover, program and access to all amenities and tours of the island plus snacks on the return to the mainland.
This is a family friendly event.  The island has Pelicans (young adults) who will help engage kiddos with games, the art barn, marine lab and activities.
$35.00 kids 4-12 and $0 under 4.
