DG Erna Morain and her husband Steve have nearly completed their visits to the Districts 65 clubs and they report a great deal of enthusiasm, activity, membership growth and increased foundation giving. They are also pleased with the emphasis of the clubs on Food Insecurity, this year’s theme. Only 3 clubs remain for the first week in November. 
DG Morain has been excited to see the number of younger member involvement in many of the clubs, both as new members and taking over leadership positions. She said it is especially pleasing to see that the older and long time members are the most excited to see the involvement of a new generation. 
For an update on all the exciting activities in your District 6000 and our 65 clubs, be sure to check out this month's RD 6000 NEWS at this link: 

Erna Morain, Governor District 6000
To encourage Rotarians and clubs to focus on Rotary’s core value of integrity, and to honor the memory of the late Boone Rotarian, District Governor 1954-55 Judge Paul E. Hellwege, District 6000 is asking clubs to nominate one member for the seventh annual District 6000 “Paul E. Hellwege Guardian of Integrity” awards. A nomination form is at this link and the deadline is Jan. 31, 2020. The District Vocational Service Committee will review the nominations, and nominees will be recognized at the District Conference.

Greetings from Evanston! After Council on Legislation here are a few things to note:
  1. Even though there were many more items that passed, a lot of them had to do with the overall organization. This document highlights what’s happening at the club and district levels. For a full overview of the COL, Rotarians could either check in with your COL Reps or visit My Rotary (
  2. You’ll see that page 1 of the document discusses that the language in Standard Rotary Club Constitution (SRCC) will be modernized to make it more accessible. It also asks the reader head to My Rotary to download a copy. We’re still in the process of streamlining the SRCC and expect it’ll be posted soon.
  3. In line with number 2 above, the 2019 Manual of Procedure (MOP) is also being drafted. Traditionally, the English version of the MOP has released in the fall (usually October) with translated versions to follow in winter. We expect the same timing this year, and will let you know when the new edition has been released. We’re expecting that it will release as an electronic PDF rather than a printed version.
