Welcome to Rotary District 6580!

District Governor Santhana Naidu


Dear Rotary Friends and Leaders,

As the year comes to an end and we enjoy the spirit of the holiday season, let’s take a moment to reflect on all that we helped achieve as Rotarians.

Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies published a report earlier this month indicating that with just 563 paid employees globally, Rotary International annually mobilizes volunteer efforts equivalent to nearly 27,000 full-time paid workers. This study also revealed that the efforts of Rotary volunteers save communities an estimated US$850 million in service costs per year.

We should all be proud of the impact and value of services we are contributing to the health, education, and welfare of communities across the world! Thanks for all of the time and effort you put into guiding your clubs in a fellowship that improves our communities. And thank you for helping Rotary get just a little closer every day to achieving a world without polio. Our entire District leadership team is grateful for all that you do as Rotarians.

We continue to make tremendous progress as a district. During this Rotary year, we have increased our membership by 47 (3% increase) and raised over $100,000 in less than six months! Kudos to all the club Presidents and leaders, AGs, district membership and foundation teams, and district AA Bettye for all of their hard work. A special shout-out to Bloomington and Columbus clubs for leading our district in membership and giving respectively.

As we enter the second half of the Rotary year, please keep up your efforts to Grow Rotary, tell our story, and support the Rotary Foundation. Please contact our Membership Chair Lance Eberle, Foundation Chair Laura Carie, Assistant Governors or me if we can be of assistance in developing a membership action plan or talk about the Foundation.

Happy New Year!

Yours in Rotary,
