A Message from District Governor Tiffany Ervin

A wise person told me once to always leave a place better than you found it. That will be hard to do when it comes to Rotary District 7670. We have been fortunate to have so many distinguished and committed leaders guiding us over the years, and I would be remiss if I didn't begin my new year by saying "thank you" to each of our past district governors who have served. They have each given unselfishly of themselves (and their families) to undertake a role that I am honored to now have.

One year...Twelve months...366 days (it's Leap Year!)...That's all I get to leave my mark, just as each of them have done before me. At Carolinas' PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) this spring, I told our incoming leaders that I have just two goals for us this year:
1-Do Good In The World
2-Have Fun

If we do those two things, everything else will fall into place. Our membership will continue to grow. Our public image will continue to improve. Our donations to The Rotary Foundation, CART and other charitable organizations will continue to increase. And lives will be changed.

On the morning of my installation as Rotary District 7670 Governor last week, I woke up to find this quote in my social media newsfeed...

“There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don’t care who gets the credit.” 
- Ronald Reagan

That message resonated with me as I prepare for one of the most exciting journeys of my life. It is my honor and privilege to serve the Rotarians of Western North Carolina in this position, and I promise not to take it lightly.  I appreciate your confidence in me and your support as we share this experience together. I hope you will reach out to me and other district leaders with your suggestions, concerns, and even your new ideas. 

Rotary International President Mark Maloney is taking our organization to a new level in 2019-2020, following in the footsteps of the innovative ideas of now Past President Barry Rassin. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me, and with your help, I look forward to seeing how "Rotary Connects The World" in the months to come!
