The meeting was addressed by District Gov. Dawn deFuria.
One of her principal aims during her time in office has been to bring fun back into Rotary, and as such she has run a campaign called “Get on board with Rotary”.
The district will celebrate the current year with a “whistle stop tour” on the weekend of April 20 to 22. There will be an annual awards banquet on the evening of Friday, April 20, at the Springfield country club. A conference will be held Saturday, April 21, at the Doubletree Hotel in Valley Forge (7:45 AM-5 PM. Finally, the district will celebrate Earth Day on April 22, 2018, by planting at least 80 trees in Heuser Park in King of Prussia. Registration is open at www.distconf.rotarydistrict7450.org
Dawn noted that the president of Rotary international, Ian Riseley, has made it one of the goals of his year in office to plant one tree for every member of Rotary around the world. Our club, Chestnut Hill Rotary, has reached that goal of planting one tree for each member.
