Touring our District, A Community at a Time
From the northern border at South Dakota, just 12 miles north of Spencer, NE to the southern border just 6 miles south of Red Cloud, NE US Highway 281 stretches approximately 275 miles to form the eastern most edge of the district. With the small exception of a small “notch” that excludes the communities of Scottsbluff, Gering, Mitchell and Morrill on the far western edge the rest of Nebraska makes up District 5630. From Chimney Rock to the NE State Fair Grounds and the Niobrara River to Harlan County Reservoir, our district is as diverse as the land it covers and we will explore is together.

I’m going to plan to post as often as possible, maybe not every day, but as the mood hits me and the need arises to share some worthy. I will share my adventures, some thoughts, some ideas that I gather from all of you, and most of all I hope to have some fun.

Mojo could also be considered as momentum. Think about it, if we are not moving for forward we are either going backwards or making no progress as all. In order to have any momentum, you must have something of substantial force to move or have an effect on another object. Something small is not going to make a difference on something substantial. Think BIG! Make a Difference!

When I was at Rotary International Assembly in San Diego, CA (Jan. 2019) we had the pleasure of meeting and hearing the family story of Carl Chinnery, and his family’s perils with Polio. This is a very personal story penned by of his 89 year old mother, and read to all of us by Carl. You might need a Kleenex!
Traveling to the clubs is certainly the most enjoyable part of the District Governors responsibilities. Meeting all the dedicated Rotarians, their families, friends and community leaders throughout the district is such a thrill for me. For many years I have made my way to clubs as often as much as possible. But this year as YOUR Governor, it is a very special honor to make the return trip to visit. I’m hoping that I can make many trips back over the year of my service to our district.
