Happy New Year to all Rotarians reading this update! We have many things to share as we start the second half of the Rotary year.

Last month, District leaders received official notice that the Rotary International Board “merges Districts 7150, 7170 and 7190 (NY, USA) into District 7180 effective July 1, 2024.” This is the timeline we have used to guide our work on CNY Rotary.

The CNY Rotary steering committee has scheduled three virtual town hall meetings to help answer questions and explain the process of building a new District. Please keep an eye on your email for an invitation with registration information. Our hope is most of you will be able to attend one of the dates listed below.

● January 19, 2023, 7 pm

● January 30, 2023, 7 pm

● February 16, 2023, 7 pm

We also hope you will mark your calendar for the joint District Conference which will be held May 5-7 at 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel, Clayton, NY. This conference will allow us to learn in fellowship, while providing opportunities for sharing ideas and service. Register now by visiting this link: https://rotary7150.org/page/conference-2023/ You can register for the entire weekend, or just Saturday and Sunday. Discounted packages are available for children and families, and all are invited to attend.

The best way to learn more about upcoming activities is to visit the CNY Rotary website or Facebook page.

Happy New Year once again!

DG Denise, DG Rocky and DG Jerry
