DG Carolyn Franks' June 2023 Newsletter 
Remember the old song “Make new friends and keep the old?” June is Rotary Fellowship Month. What a great way to make new friends from around the world and get your “old” Rotary friends to join you. There are fellowships for just about any interest you can imagine. I personally belong to the International Rotary Fellowship of Musicians and the Rotary Wine Appreciation Fellowship. I know we have members who are part of the International Fellowship of Flying Rotarians. Go to for more information. This would make a great club program!
June 2023 is Rotary Fellowship Month

June 2023 Foundation Newsletter 
Rotarians, this note comes to you from 30,000 feet as Ava and I head to Melbourne for the Rotary International Convention.
Celebrating life as a Rotarian you truly owe it to yourself to attend one or more R I Conventions to completely immerse yourself in the Rotary Universe.
Besides developing new ideas for service, your presence can inspire others to further embrace the service they can provide with you as a mentor.
June 2023 Membership Minute 
Passing the Torch - PDG Lee Montgomery, June 2018-June 2023 D-5830 Membership Chair
AG Landon Forbes, 2023-2024 D-5830 Membership Chair 

Some of our members may have served in the Armed Forces of the United States. To them and all connected to any military service, I want to THANK YOU for YOUR SERVICE, as we recently membered Memorial Day. One of the traditions of many service organizations was the “Hail and Farewell” where new folks were heartily greeted and departing members were bid a fond farewell. As outgoing Membership Chair for the District, I want to say a hearty WELCOME to your new DISTRICT MEMBERSHIP CHAIR LANDON FORBES.
