South Hall Rotary welcomed Rotary District 6910 Governor Tina Fischlin to Flowery Branch recently. Governor Fischlin joined the group on November 11th to bring her message of encouragement and hope as Rotary International faces a pivotal year in the organization’s history.
During her visit to the club, the Governor inducted Derrek Booth from the Hall County Sheriff’s Department and Matt Waters of United Community Bank as the club’s newest members. Club members were also post ceremoniously presented awards for being recognized as the Small Club of the Year runner up and as a 100% sustaining Paul Harris Club by the District delegation.
Governor Fischlin shared her goals for Rotary as an organization to take advantage of this year’s theme and challenged each of us to really capitalize on the fact that Rotary Opens Opportunities. Her message reminded each of us to look around and the numerous opportunities that have been presented this year for each of us to serve during an unprecedented year centered around the pandemic. The main theme of the message was for Rotarians across the District to remember that while we may flock together is okay to be the “pink flamingo” that finds a different path.
The club wrapped up the meeting by unveiling their submission to the club beach towel competition and sharing that numerous members planned to be physically present this year in Jekyll Island as the club pursue the prestigious honor of being named the 2021 Small Club of the Year.
