Dear Fellow Rotarians of District 6820,
     Rotary International President, Mark Daniel Maloney's theme, Rotary Connects the World, asks Rotarians to strengthen Rotary by building on the connections that allow our 1.2 million talented, thoughtful, and generous Rotarians to unite and take meaningful action through Rotary service. " (Rotary) allows us to connect with each other, in deep and meaningful ways, across our differences," Maloney said.  "It connects us to people we would never otherwise have met, who are more like us than we ever could have known.  It connects us to our communities, to professional opportunities, and to the people who need our help."
     Maloney believes that the "connection" is at the heart of the Rotary experience, and that in the coming year, "The first emphasis is to grow Rotary - to grow our service, to grow the impact of our projects," and importantly, to "grow our membership so that we can achieve more..."  If you think about it, you will think of dozens of ways that we connect as Rotarians.  Among those, and to strengthen our District 6820 clubs in the coming year, let's connect in order to:
     Grow our clubs - With people that we know who would benefit from being a Rotarian
*   Improve our clubs' membership retention - by purposefully engaging with our new members to welcome them and get them involved in Rotary service
*   Broaden our service impact - by partnering with other Rotary clubs, our Rotaract & Interact club and other service organizations,
*   Serve internationally - By supporting and/or participating in our District's mission work in Mexico
*   Fund our local and international projects - Through support of The Rotary Foundation
*   And, (as always) have great fun, fellowship, and service with our clubs' members
     Yours in Rotary Service
     Mark Fields
     District Governor 2019-2020
