Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta has a vision for Rotary. He is asking and encouraging every Rotarian, each of us, to do more in our communities. Shekhar is asking each club to conduct a Rotary Day of Service in their community!
With that said, District Governor Joanne Alfieri District 7890 and Vice Governor Rick Bassett, on behalf of Jeff Krause, District Governor from District 7980 have come up with a plan to make his vision come true!  Our District has chosen April 9, 2022, as our Day of Service. Our vision is that all our clubs participate in a service project on this day infiltrating our towns with the love of Rotary Service.  There will be participation of all Rotary Clubs in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts.  We will be contacting state officials and state media to involve them in a Connecticut wide and Western Massachusetts wide Day of Service April 9, 2022. This undertaking will be led by PDG Kate Sims for D-7890 & PDG Jack Solomon for D-7980.
Our Ask:
Choose a project, it can be a new project for that day or an ongoing project that your club has been pursuing or even multiple projects. On April 9th, get all your club members together to work on the project and celebrate their contributions. Invite city/town officials to participate, invite others in town, invite other service clubs to all participate and help with the service. Involve your Interact Club in your service and celebration. Make a part of your service and celebration a media event, so invite the local press. We will provide you with help in organizing your clubs' media event. It will be simple.
  • invite city and town officials
  • invite other service minded people
