On April 29, 30, and May 1, District 7120 had the chance to RECONNECT live at our District Conference at the Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center.
We had an attendance of over 200 people who came and went with the weekend – because it was close enough to come for a while and go home, and yet economically priced to be able to stay if you wanted to.  
We had wonderful and inspiring speakers – PDG Teresa Hall and Past Rotary International President Rick King.  Terri (who was our district’s first woman District Governor) spoke about the history of Women In Rotary, and PRIP Rick talked about commitment and satisfaction of being a Rotarian.  Both pieces will be available as a link from the District webpage, and they were worth listening to!
The weather cooperated with us – quite cool, but no rain, so the golf tournament happened on Friday, and we had a Fort Ontario tour, a bike tour, and a poker run all on Saturday afternoon.
Friday evening, we had the Parade of Flags by our outbound Youth Exchange – always a moving event.  Saturday night we also had the winner of the District Oratorical Contest deliver his winning speech – Incredible!
We had a very talented trio as entertainment on Friday night, and Saturday we were entertained by the Mike Yacci Trio from Canandaigua.  There was plenty of dancing!  
On Sunday morning we celebrated the lives of all the Rotarians in our district who had passed on in the past 2-3 years, with a slide show and contemplative music.  It was quite beautiful.
The venue was terrific – clean and pleasant.  The staff was accommodating and friendly, and the facility owner – George Broadwell was outstanding to work with.  The Conference Committee presented him with a Paul Harris Fellow at the end of the weekend for his commitment to hosting a great conference.
We’re sorry if you missed it, but keep an eye on the District Facebook page – and check it out!
