DG Carolyn Franks' October 2022 Newsletter 
“As no individual who shirks his community service can lay justifiable claim to being a well-rounded citizen, so no Rotary club of today which is indifferent to the welfare of the city in which it is established measures up to the stature of full-grown Rotary clubs.” A quote from Paul Harris in the November 1915 Rotarian. October is Economic and Community Development. Wouldn’t Paul Harris be amazed at the scope of Rotary’s involvement now focused on this area?

As I travel to my club visits, I am delighted by the club activities focused not only locally but in communities all over the world. Even the smallest clubs are making a big difference. Thank you!
October is Economic and Development Month 

Rotary International members and our foundation work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

We provide training and access to well-paying jobs and financial management institutions.

Deadline to Register is October 1, 2022 for the 2021-2022 District Conference on Oct. 7 & 8th, 2022 
Come to the 2021-2022 District 5830 Conference and have fun, celebrate your successful Rotary Year, plus Explore the Museum of the Red River.   Click here to learn more.

October 2022 Membership Minute
Greetings from Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the Zones 30 & 31 Governor training and Zone Institute!!!
What an exciting event to learn, update and revisit Rotary friends!!
One of the guests was our District’s Membership coordinator at Rotary International, Haris Sofradzija. He shared some updates on your club using Rotary Membership Leads.
When any person interested in learning more about Rotary goes to and fills in an inquiry, they become a Rotary Lead. The lead, including their profile, is sent to the District to dissemination to the club officers, assistant governors and district leadership, so we can reach out to the person to give them more information about the club and, most importantly, come visit.
October 2022 Foundation Newsletter 

How recently have you thought about positive outcomes with money you go personally invested?

How about with money you invested with The Rotary Foundation?

We were all asked to join Rotary, but has anyone asked you to give to The Rotary Foundation? If not, please consider this your call to action. 

Many of us are accustomed to the terms time, talent, and treasure, and they reinforce and summarize the intentional acts required to support what we love and that in which we believe.
