June 2018 District Governor’s Newsletter
 
We will end the 2017-2018 Rotary Year at the end of this month. Without a doubt, District 5830 has Made a Difference both locally and internationally on so many levels. Our District is made up of so many wonderful people who have a heart for service. Service above self is lived out every day. People are fed, clothed, sheltered, provided medical help, given resources to go to school, furnished with clean water, and cared for because of your hard work and financial support. I have been blessed to serve as District Governor this year and see your good works first hand.
Hello to all of you dedicated Rotarians across District 5830.  June is the last month of the current Rotary year.  We want to finish the Rotary year off strongly. 
 
This note is to remind you and your Rotary friends of our commitment to Rotary through our support of the Rotary Foundation. 
 
Your Annual SHARE Fund contribution is invested and essentially 100% goes to do the humanitarian work of Rotary across the Globe AND back at home through your Club Project Grant requests.
 
To All District 5830 Rotarians:

It is that time of year when we look for nominations for emerging leaders in our District to be nominated to serve as District Governor.  The new DG Designee will serve as DG for the 2021-2022 Rotary year.  As each of you well know, we must have talented and effective leaders for our District to make sure we continue to achieve our goals and grow in our service to the world.

Annual Picnic for Opportunities Inc. Adult Residents: The Oaklawn Rotary Club was happy to join with the International Rotary Club (both of Texarkana) to host an annual picnic at Bobby Ferguson Park in Texarkana, Ark. We are so proud of the Interact Clubs (high school clubs sponsored by a local Rotary Club) from Pleasant Grove and Arkansas High! These students played games with about 50 adults who have special needs. We cooked 160 hot dogs and served all the fixins. The weather was pleasant and everyone had a great time!  They look forward to next year.
