Dear Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, and Friends of Rotary,
                In September I visited the following clubs:  Rochester, Rochester Southwest, East Rochester, Red Jacket, Penn Yan, Scottsville, Watkins-Montour, Elmira Heights, Hilton, Red Creek, and Palmyra-Macedon.  I enjoyed playing in the District Golf Tournament in Lima and walking the Winged Pheasant Golf Course for Red Jacket’s End Polio Run/Walk.  Many of you were at the Eastern Cities Dinner where we heard from Rotary International President-Elect Holger Knaack.  Others joined me at the District Literacy Seminar or the Rotary Zone 24/32 Training in Niagara Falls.  We held our monthly Governor’s Tract meeting, the Area 12 clubs had their annual picnic in North Rose, and Spencerport Rotary honored Past District Governor Roger Ressman at a club dinner.  It was also a pleasure to participate in Paul Harris Fellow recognition ceremonies at both Brighton and Newark Rotary Clubs.  Absolutely fantastic!  I continue to be impressed by the fellowship and generosity across District 7120.
Thursday, October 24, is World Polio Day.  The eradication of polio is the signature project of Rotary International.  For all too long we have boasted that we are “this close” to achieving that goal.  It is now time that we “Drop to Zero!”  Acknowledging that the number of cases in Pakistan this year has been frustrating, let’s also recognize that there has not been a case in Africa for over 3 years now.  “The noose is tightening” on the polio virus.  This is an expensive, but worthwhile, mission which Rotary has undertaken.  I am confident that we will succeed.  The day will come when the world is declared free from polio and, when that day comes, you will never be more proud to be a Rotarian.
There are several training sessions for Rotarians scheduled soon.  I hope every club will be represented at each of the following events:
Leadership Development Seminar is on Saturday, October 12, from 7:45am-12:30pm at Mount Morris Middle/Senior High School, 30 Bonadonna Ave., Mount Morris.  There is no fee.  Advance registration is not required.  This is essential training for all club Presidents-Elect, but all aspiring club leaders are welcome.  (One of three annual Grant Management Seminars is being held at the same time and location.)
One Rotary Summit is on Saturday, October 26, from 8:30am-12:30pm at the United Presbyterian Church, 11 E Gibson St., Canandaigua.  There is no fee.  Advance registration is requested on the district website.  This is for all club board members and committee chairpersons to enhance their understanding of the synergy among membership, service, and public image.
Rotary Leadership Institute is on Saturday, November 16, from 7:30am-3:30pm at the RIT Inn & Conference Center, 5257 W Henrietta Rd., Henrietta.  The fee is $100, payable at the door.  Advance registration is requested at   This is an informational seminar for all Rotarians.  
I encourage you to take your Rotary experience to the next level!

A message from District Governor Dave Hannan.
(Well worth the read)
District Governor Dave Hannan and Pam HannanRotary Connects the World!
Rotary International President 2019-2020 Mark Daniel Maloney, from Decatur, AL, USA, introduced his theme for this Rotary year, “Rotary Connects the World,” in January while I was at the Rotary International Assembly for District Governors-Elect. 
Reflecting on that theme, I have asked myself, “What does that mean to the ‘rank and file’ Rotarian?”
Obviously, Rotary international leaders are traveling the globe and connecting, and club members who are active in The Rotary Foundation Global Grants process are connecting, but what about the rest of us?
It’s been another challenging Rotary Year and I’m proud to say that many of our club and district leaders rose to the occasion to help us tackle those challenges and make a difference in both our local and international communities. Our thanks go out to all of you who contributed to The Rotary Foundation leading to per capita giving of more than $100 for the District overall. Your generosity will help us fund even more global and local service projects. Please continue your generous giving into the future to continue supporting our six Areas of Focus. Your generosity will inspire others to do the same.
It is with great pleasure I announce that the District Nominating Committee has interviewed and chosen Janet Tenreiro of the Rotary Club of Canandaigua, New York as the District Governor Nominee Designate. Janet has graciously accepted the invitation to serve and has already begun her training as a member of the DG Track to serve as District Governor in the Rotary year 2021-2022.
Since joining the Canandaigua Rotary Club in 1996 she has served as Club Secretary, Program Chair, and Club President (04-05). Most recently Janet is serving as Assistant Governor for Area 6 which includes the Canandaigua, Clifton Springs, Gorham, Red Jacket and Victor/Farmington Rotary Clubs.
An Open Letter to All Members of Rotary District 7120.
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
When Jo and I visited each of your clubs, I asked you to consider making a commitment to put aside at least 30 cents ($.30) each day toward your annual Rotary Foundation Giving. Doing the math this comes to $39.90 as of November 10, 2018, but I would prefer to think of the approaching holiday of Thanksgiving as a milestone which would bring the amount to $43.50.

Rotary is leading the way to eradicate polio

Rotary has lead the fight to eradicate polio from our earth for over the past 25 years. We have partnered with many other organizations and governments to give the vaccine to billions of children.
