A few days on Long Island

Next week Jan and I attend “District Governor training” in Boston.  We were invited to Connie and Bernie Gervanski’s home, beforehand.  Connie is also DG same time as me.   They live on New York’s Long Island in  a town called South Jamesport NY.  A very pretty rural area.   Today we are going into NY city.  The past few days Connie and Bernie showed us around.. yesterday we went for a boat ride on their very cool boat.  (sleeps 6!).  In this pic Bonnie and I are reading our “District Governor Manual”.  Yes indeed!

Monday we drive to Boston where DG Elects from my zone (around 30 of us) meet for 2 days of training.  later in the week is more general Rotary training.   In January every DG in the world meet in San Diego for a week of training.  (There are 535!)

It’s so much fun to meet with the fellow DG classmates over the past 2 years to compare notes.   Connie and I have been bouncing lots of ideas back and forth.  She has unique challenges compared to my District.  For instance she has 30 clubs, and a district that is 3 hours across.   Of course mine is 18 hours of driving across!  When she does her club visits (Each DG every year has to visit every club) she can go home every night.   Not so for me.

So its been fun comparing notes.  More fun next week in Boston!
