CONGRATULATIONS to Rotary District 7210's very own Drew Kessler who has been selected to serve as the Zone 28 & 32 Rotary International Director for 2022-24! This is an extraordinary honor, as Drew is believed to be the youngest RI Director ever, and the first from our Hudson Valley New York District.
Rotary Zone 28 & 32 includes the Northeastern US (NY, CT, MA, RI, VT, NH, ME, NJ & PA), portions of Michigan and Washington state, virtually all of Canada, as well as Bermuda and the French Islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon. There are 17 Directors from around the world on the Rotary International Board, each serving two year terms.
At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work. ... Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
I hope you are all safe and happy! We are all faced with changes in lifestyles and how we interact with others, however, Rotarians are a hardy stock and we will make the most out of our new world, and continue to help those in need in our communities and abroad in developing countries.
