Comments from Governor Ade

Dear Rotarians,

As I prepare to leave for the Rotary International Convention in Melbourne, Australia, I just want to thank everyone who attended the District Conference & Expo and the Annual Meeting on May 6.  It was a fun and informative day with lots of expo displays, outstanding speakers and great service projects.  I hope everyone left energized and ready to continue doing good in your communities.

For those going to Melbourne, I look forward to seeing you there!

Yours in Rotary Service,

Adé Ọnǎyẹmí
