Hello District 5830:  February is upon us, and I hope to see as many of you as can make it at the District Events set out and described in this newsletter. I believe the more you attend, the more you will grow and mature in Rotary and enjoy it.  Our District membership is up 30 members in the past 12 months. If we can increase 3 members per club during 2020 we can have 10% District membership growth. If that is less than your club goal, please reach your goal. If not, please make it your goal, and go to work enthusiastically! And, please review your progress toward receiving the Citation, making sure your progress is reported, and work hard toward completing the requirements. 
There is a new e-club forming for RYLA alumni, and I wholeheartedly encourage all of you who are RYLA alums to join. Contact Sarah Jenkins at sjenkins529@gmail.com to look into joining this e-club. 
I know that all that I am pushing is work in one sense but also growth in Rotary at the same time, and it is the time of the year to push forward. Thank you for all that you do and your Service Above Self and making decisions which accord with the 4-Way Test.
DG Jim
