DG Mike's October 2021 Newsletter
October in Rotary is Community Economic Development month. When I think of community economic development, I reminisce about growing up in Houston, Texas in the 1960’s and 70’s. What a vibrant town and economic juggernaut it was (and still is, I might add). I firmly believe Houston owed its economic success and vibrancy to several things. The first is Houston’s leaders didn’t get in your way in pursuing opportunities. 
October is Economic and Community Development Month
Nearly 800 million people live on less than $1.90 a day.  Rotary members are passionate about providing sustainable solutions to poverty. 
Announcing Jeff Johnston as DGND
Congratulations to Jeff Johnston, Past President of the South Tyler Rotary Club who has been selected by the District 5830 Nominating Committee as District Governor Nominee Designate.  He has been selected to serve during the 2024-2025 Rotary Year.
Pursuant to the District’s Bylaws, specifically Article II – District 5830 Committees, the Nomination of Jeff Johnston was held until September 30th to permit any challenges or re-nominations. No challenges or re-nominations have been received so the nomination was final at midnight on September 30, 2021.
Membership Minute 
Our District membership numbers are up!! RI reports are pending, so I will give you numbers later.Why do members often leave Rotary? A BIG reason is lack of involvement…they don’t feel a sense of purpose. Does your club have an ENGAGEMENT plan?? Hand in hand with getting a new member is getting them involved quickly. Are they assigned to a Service Project? A Fund Raiser? How about being a greeter for a month to get to meet other members? Attend a board meeting?
