On Tuesday, Aug. 2, newly-elected District Governor Gary Dills visited the Boone Sunrise Rotary Club for the first time since assuming office.
A retired Air Force colonel, Dills urged members to embrace Rotary International’s 2016-17 theme, “Rotary Serving Humanity.”
“[This is a] new Rotary year of opportunity to serve humanity at home and abroad,” Dills said in a recent message.
“As always, cultures around the world are changing – we see glaring evidence every day, everywhere. Rotary must and is adapting to changing demographics and diverse lifestyles,” he added
“I am a Rotarian because I believe in serving people – to give them an opportunity to have better lives because of our service.”
The Boone Sunrise Rotary Club, along with the Blowing Rock and Boone Noon clubs, are members of District 7670, which covers several counties across Western North Carolina.
