Minutarian Update, Week 51
One week to go in a great Rotary Year. Sound familiar? Please remember: the fun, fellowship, business and work of Rotary go on every day all around the world. We merely change much of our leadership. We don't fire 'em, we just move 'em on to the next thing. 

Speaking of changing leadership, induction events have started all over the District. Thanks to all those that have served their clubs this year. Some will continue to serve in their existing or new roles, and others will step into leadership positions for the first time. Thanks to all. 

Thanks to the hard work of our webmaster, Howard Kelley, Club awards are now on the District website, Awards tab! You will also find a full listing of our Rotaract and Interact Clubs. If your club's Interact isn't listed, it's probably due to a lapse in paperwork. It can be rectified, but we need to follow up. Just let DGE Percy, or I know and we'll be happy to help. 

June brings many sad goodbyes as we all wish our departing youth exchange students well on journeys to their other home. Thank you for enriching our lives. 

Speaking of youth, RYLA is this coming weekend at UNF. Good luck RYLAarians, and all our volunteers that make it happen. 

The Rotary Club of Downtown Gainesville showed it's not too late in the Rotary year, inducting two new members last week. Welcome Jon Uman and Ben Meyers. It should be pointed out that Ben is a young professional in his twenties. Age is not and should not be a barrier to what Past District Governor Tommy Grimes always said, "Doing Good". 

Yes, it's a long minute this week, and next's may be even longer. Bear with me! 

Keep doing those wonderful things you do! Have a great week!
