Well, it looks like this is my Swan Song!  All I can say is that it has been a heckuva a ride!  This past year will be one of the fondest memories I will ever have.  I have seen people I haven't seen in a long time and met some very fine Rotarians whom I didn't know but can now call my friends.  We have a great District with some amazing people who helped me out at every corner....for which I am eternally grateful.  It is with a heavy heart that I say good bye;  but you will see me again in the coming years as I don't intend to disappear!  Yours in Rotary Service, Judy

Marshall Rotary Club sponsors Carthage Rotary Club.  Even more relevant than that is the fact that Judy Guthrie is the 2018-2019 District Governor of District 5830.  Judy was the first female member of the Rotary Club of Carthage, having joined in February of 2004!  Written by: PDG Jim Fitzgerald
The flash back into the past requires that the stage be set. World War II had ended May 8, 1945, but the war in Japan was still raging. 
A little over a month later, in the Sunday, June 17, 1945 edition of the Marshall News Messenger, Marshall club president, Gordon Boone, announced that several members of the Marshall and Center Texas Rotary clubs had met for the first meeting of the new Rotary club in Carthage, Texas, Friday June 15. 
Well....those of you who didn't go on the Multi District Conference Cruise missed a really good time!! We had really good speakers, played games to win prizes, helped the District in Cozumel paint a school, had beautiful weather and wonderful food. All in all, everyone had fun! WE WERE ON A CRUISE Y'ALL and didn't spend all day in a meeting room. We had speakers on Friday and Sunday mornings plus a memorial service for Rotarians in our four Districts who had passed away this past year. We had games in the afternoons if you wanted to play.....hula hoop, shuffleboard, and bean bag throw (also known as corn hole). I'm proud to say that a Rotarian from 5830, Mary Moss and her husband Bill won the bean bag throw!! I hope the DGs following us will do something for their District Conferences that is as much fun as this one was and can manage to get as many good speakers as we had. Please see pictures of the fun on the District Website Photo Album.

Our annual 4 Way Speech Contest was a great success!  We had 19 contestants this year and being a judge is becoming more and more difficult.  These young people are just getting better and better.  The First, Second and Third Place winners are pictured here.  Congratulations to them and all the contestants for a job well done!

A big "Thank You" to Amy Hinton and the Members of Mt. Pleasant Rotary Club for hosting the event. In Rotary Service,
DG Judy

PDG John Jetter attended the triennial Rotary Council on Legislation as RI District 5830’s representative.  The Council met at the Hyatt Regency Chicago April 14 to 18, 2019.  The Council (one representative for each of 530 plus districts) considered 117 enactments of which 42 were adopted.
The 2019 Council on Legislation was not near as progressive as the 2016 Council.  However, it did take some interesting actions.

Atlanta Area club has been sponsoring a “Next Chapter Book Club” for the last 2 years. Members Sheri New, David Lester and Fern Porter have been encouraging these “reading challenged” adults to open up the world of books and discover new vistas! This year they read about cats who can walk through walls and horses that can soar over stiles. There have been fun moments of suspense as we read each week.
