Beginning this Friday D7980 Conference/Assembly attendees will enjoy the company and fellowship of over 425 Rotarians, family members, and young adults from Interact, Rotaract and Youth Exchange in a truly engaging and unique Rotary experience.
This extraordinary experience is made possible by the exceptional partnership between the current district leaders and next year’s leaders, especially DGE Mukund Nori. This is the very first time that Rotary District 7980 has combined the Conference and the Assembly into a single event and from all indications the approach is being very well received.
We kick off our event on Friday morning at Ocean Beach in New London with a Community Service beach project and then move to the main venue at the Mystic Marriott in Groton for a program hosted by the young adults of Youth Service (New Generations). All will enjoy a fun-filled evening on Friday featuring entertainment provided by BritishMania, the internationally acclaimed Beatles tribute band.
Saturday is all about our D7980 Rotary Clubs with high-energy programs and informative sessions that are designed to inspire all attendees. Lunch on Saturday will be attended by both Conference and Assembly participants who will be treated to the 4-Way Test Speech Contest before heading into the District Assembly. Saturday is also the day that we recognize the many outstanding Rotarians and Rotary Clubs for the good works that they do in their communities and around the world.
The event concludes on Sunday at noon after some very informative programs on The Rotary Foundation, the State of the District and we after conduct an election for the representative of the next Council On Legislation.
I am especially pleased that we were able to bring the District Conference back to Connecticut for the first time in almost 25 years and give so many of our Rotarians the opportunity to attend.
