Rotarians,
 
I am pleased to share with you that our Nominating Committee today nominated Dick Hall of The Rotary Club of Portland to be our District Governor in 2021-22.  Dick first joined Rotary in 1984, when he followed his grandfather and father by joining The Rotary Club of Worcester, MA.  Dick's father (age 96) and his uncle (age 86) are still members of that club.  Dick's father served as Governor of District 7910 in 1987-88.  Dick's sister and his daughter are Rotarians in our district's Westbrook-Gorham and Portland Sunrise clubs.
 
Keep an eye out for our District Newsletter in December.  I'll formally announce Dick's nomination in that newsletter (as our Bylaws require) and I'll share some of Dick's extensive Rotary resume at that time.
 
For now, please join me in congratulating Dick on his nomination and thank him for his willingness to serve.
 
With my best wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families,
 
John LoBosco
District Governor, 2018-19
Rotary District 7780

RI President-elect Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-19, Be the Inspiration, asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other. “I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”
 
The Rotary Club of Saco Bay has a new Clynk fund raiser. We will deliver Clynk bags to you, and pick them up when full. All you need to do is to toss in your used returnable bottles. You can get bags for your picnics, ball games, camps, business, homes or anywhere you have empty bottles. If you would like 1, 2 or 25 bags, please let us know. Your help will be appreciated not only by the Rotary, but also by the many local and international causes that the Rotary helps. Thank you.
