District Governor 5190 Roberta (Berta) Pickett
Message from the new DG

District Governor Roberta "Berta" Pickett will join us on August 10th for her "official club visit", to share the 2020-21 District 5190 vision, mission, and goals and how they integrate with Rotary International's vision, strategic priorities, and theme. She will share a "Rotary moment" that shifted her from being in Rotary to being a Rotarian. In addition to talking a bit about how our experience in Rotary is a journey, she will present the Quiet Rotarian Award and the new Heart of Service Award to two deserving club members. With the economic and social impacts of COVID19, hear why the world needs Rotary's people of action more than ever to turn challenges into opportunities.
