Taking the Challenge
Past President Percy Rosenbloom (now District Governor) and Governor-nominee Marshall Butler have joined the thousands who have taken the ALS Ice Bucket challenge but with a special Rotary reason. At a weekend Green Cove Springs Rotary Bike Ride honoring Past District Governor Brent Williams they warmed hearts with a chilling experience.

Week 9. Rotary Minute for week beginning September 1, 2014.
OK, get your motors running. School is back in session, football season is ramping up and we’ve got lots going on as fall approaches here in District 6970.
Our District’s two Rotary Days events are now official.
First, on Monday, October 20, all Rotarians are invited to a special district luncheon in Jacksonville. You will hear the latest update on Rotary’s epic project to end Polio worldwide. The message will be delivered by two outstanding speakers: John Germ, who is the Chair of the International PolioPlus Committee and who will be our Rotary International President for 2016-2017; along with Aziz Memon, who is Pakistan’s National PolioPlus Chairman. Be on the lookout for more information about this special event.
Second, on Sunday, October 26, we’ll culminate our District’s Rotary Days events at EverBank Field when the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Miami Dolphins. To really make this day special and to cultivate our Rotary-Jaguar partnership, we need for each club to sell tickets.
- Sunday, September 14 – A district-wide Ice Bucket Challenge in honor of PDG Brent Williams will take place in Gainesville, Florida at the Hatchet Creek Wildlife Reserve from noon until 3:00pm. It will be fun for family so bring your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren too!
- Saturday, October 11 – The Rotary Leadership Institute will hold its first sessions for the year at the Orange Park Campus of St. Johns River State College.
Information about these events can be found on our District Calendar in the upper right of this page.
Yours in service to Rotary,
