Though Rotary International did not officially change the
rules about membership until 1989, Joliet Rotary had
earlier opened its membership to women. In 1987, the first
four women inducted were Mary Jane Broncato, Ruth
Calvert Fitzgerald, Carolyn Healy, and Sister Dismas
Jansen. In 1997, Deb Condotti was elected the first female
President of Joliet Rotary.

Upcoming Meeting Volunteers

Please seek substitute if you cannot

You may have already heard that the Rotary float in the 2020 Rose Parade was the Winner of the Tournament Volunteer Award for the Most Outstanding Floral Presentation of the Rose Parade.  The theme of the float was “Hope Connects the World”.  With over 70 million viewers this float puts Rotary and its works on the world stage.  Entirely supported by individual donations, every element of the float is managed by the volunteers who make up the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee.  I am excited to report that I will be part of that committee and a volunteer decorator on the float for 2021.  If you have always wanted to be part of this event, please let me know.  Perhaps we might assemble a District 6450 team to send out to Pasadena and represent the Birthplace of Rotary.  If you would like more information about the RRPF go to their website:  click here for photos and more information.  
On February 15th, the District will, for the third time, host empowerLEADERS. This is a morning of leadership, mentorship and scholarship for local high school seniors, college students and young professionals.  Steven Smutny and his team are working on sponsors, recruiting students and finalizing plans for the event.  Please check out the web site:   empowerLEADERS  and learn more about it.  If you would like to play a role in this leadership event, please contact Steven via email at: 

 Sign up now.  Online at: Annual District Conference - 4/24-26/2020 
$475 for Rotarian
$325 for Spouse/Partner
Thank you, again, for all you are doing for our communities. 
Our District 6450 Rotarians are actively “connecting the world”! 

All the best,
Governor, 2019-2020
