Rotary District Governor to visit

The Smoketown Rotary Club of a Brunswick will host Rotary International District Governor Rich Glover at the Club’s luncheon meeting on Friday, July 20 at the Steadman-Keenan American Legion. As one of 534 District Governors worldwide, Glover oversees sixty-one Rotary Clubs in Central Maryland and Washington, DC, which membership totals 2,187.

A 27-year member of Rotary International, Glover is a Past President of two Rotary Clubs: the Johnson County Rotary Club of Overland Park, Kansas, and the Southern Frederick County Rotary Club in Frederick, Maryland. Glover is currently a member of the Southern Frederick County Rotary Club.

In his leadership role Glover is urging all Rotarians “To Be The Inspiration”, heralding Rotary International President Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-2019. Glover asserts: “Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive and sustainable impact in communities at home and around the world. Rotary is not only a model of a world at peace, but an inspiration to show people what is possible.”

Smoketown Rotary Club President Judy Couillard foresees the Rotary District Governor’s Official visit as an opportunity “to showcase the array of community service projects the newly-chartered Rotary Club is engaged in, as well as to learn about opportunities for service in the wider world of Rotary.”

Glover will be accompanied on his visitation by Tiffany Ahalt, Rotary Area Governor for the five Rotary Clubs in Frederick County, which comprise 22% of the membership in the Central Maryland/DC Rotary District. Ahalt is a member and Past President of the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek.
