Greetings from District Governor Mandy Jo Lohrum! 

I am thrilled to extend my heartfelt appreciation to each of you as we embark on this exciting Rotary year. As your District Governor, I am honored to serve alongside you, united by our shared commitment to service, fellowship, and positive impact.

Our theme for this year is “The Magic of Rotary.” This theme captures the essence of what makes Rotary so special: the transformative power of our collective efforts and the remarkable impact we have on the world.

The magic of Rotary lies in our ability to unite people from diverse backgrounds and professions, all sharing a common goal of service above self. Together, we create a synergy that turns our individual contributions into a powerful force for good.

Our projects, whether local or international, are not just acts of charity but investments in the future. We build schools, provide clean water, fight diseases, and promote peace. Each act of service is a testament to the magic that happens when caring individuals come together to make a difference.

As we embrace this year’s theme, let us continue to be inspired by the magic that is Rotary. Let us work with renewed vigor to spread hope, change lives, and create a better world for all.

Setting Goals: As we begin this journey, let us set ambitious goals. Let’s aim high, dream big, and work tirelessly to achieve them. Whether it’s increasing membership, launching impactful projects, or fostering international partnerships, our goals will guide our actions. There will be a separate video shared with everyone around this year's goals.

Collaboration and Camaraderie: Rotary is not just an organization; it’s a family. Let’s foster camaraderie, build bridges, and celebrate our diversity. Reach out to fellow Rotarians, attend club meetings, and participate in district events. Together, we can achieve more than we ever thought possible.

Service Projects: Our district has a rich history of impactful service projects. Let’s continue that legacy. Whether it’s planting trees, providing clean water, or promoting literacy, our projects touch lives and create ripples of hope. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work!

Rotary Foundation: Remember that every dollar we contribute to The Rotary Foundation transforms lives. Let’s support its programs—whether it’s PolioPlus, global grants, or scholarships. Our generosity knows no bounds.

District Conference: Mark your calendars for our upcoming district conference April 26th, 2025 in Indianapolis. It’s a time to learn, connect, and celebrate. I look forward to seeing you there!

In closing, let’s embrace the Rotary spirit with enthusiasm, compassion, and resilience. Together, we will make this year remarkable—one that leaves an indelible mark on our communities and the world.

Yours in Rotary service,

Mandy Jo Lohrum Rotary District 6580
