One of the highlights for me and Jan in 2013 was the official Rotary Club visits as part of our Governor duties. We visited every one of the 61 Rotary clubs in our district between late August and end of November. We also had a separate meeting with the club executive. I usually gave a 20 minute talk to the club membership after a nice evening dinner event usually. The executive meetings allowed us to learn about their clubs and offer assistance if needed. We also met with the youth groups.. around 14 or so Interact clubs and Rotaract clubs.
Jan and I put on around 17,000 km’s driving to places like Fort Nelson and Jasper and Battlefords and Peace River. We flew to Yellowknife and Ft. MacMurray. We loved every minute of it. The clubs are s0 proud to show off their accomplishments. We are glad we spent a few extra days in the clubs further away from our city, that being Yellowknife and Hay River and Ft. MacMurray. All along the way I realized how lucky I am to have Jan. She visited every single club with me. I couldn’t have done it with out her. Such a rare thing to be able to visit 2300 people and learn about what makes them tick in their communities. So glad to have Jan along with me. The “Official Governor Tour” will always be a very memorable experience. Once in a lifetime. Our year as Governor ends June 30th, 2013.
