About Rotary District 6040
Dear Rotarians in District 6040,  
 
My name is Julie McCoy and I have been a member of the Chillicothe, Missouri, Rotary club for 27 years.  My husband Rolfe and I have three beautiful daughters and 4 exceptionally bright grandchildren.  While I love them all dearly, I look forward to being your District Governor for the 2018-19 year. 
 
First, let me say thank you to the outgoing District Governor, Allen Garner, District 6040 Officers and all the District 6040 Club Presidents.  This past year has been memorable under their leadership.  And, we have truly “made a difference” in our state and around the world.  Thank you all for your service!
 
Next, I’d like to congratulations to the new officers serving in the 2018-19 year.  I am looking forward to working with you each of you.  In fact, I look forward to meeting all 2400 Rotarians in our district.  I want to see and learn what great things are happening in your communities.
 
This year’s theme was set by Rotary International President, Barry Rassin. He has asked each one of us to Be The Inspiration…in our clubs, in our communities and around the world.  And, I have no doubt that District 6040 Rotarians will inspire others to success as we continue to work towards service on behalf of others.  I look forward to an Inspiring year ahead!

THE REACH OUT AND READ CHALLENGE
 
February 23, 2019 is Rotary International’s 114th birthday. What better way to celebrate than to “Reach Out and Read”? Can we get EVERY club in district 6040 to reach out and read to a group of children, teens or adults during the week of Rotary International’s birthday (February 17th – 23rd, 2019)?
 
The Challenge:
 
During the week of Rotary International’s birthday, February 17th through February 23rd, 2019, organize members of your club to reach out and read in your local school, a nursing home, a residence for individuals with disabilities, etc. Be the inspiration and spread the joy of reading.
 
Take a picture of your club’s effort and send to Janet Gooch, District 6040 Literacy Chair at jquinzer@truman.edu and I’ll post it on the 6040 website. Let me know how many members were involved, the number of hours served, and other details that highlight the project.
 
Use the event to promote Rotary and your club via Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media. I will attempt to post the success of the district project on Rotary Showcase.
 
Think about the impact on our communities if every club in our district reaches out and reads, connecting with others and spreading the joy of literacy in celebration of Rotary International’s Birthday.
This month is all about the Group Study Exchange to Australia.  There is great information for clubs on our team and the visitors coming to District 6040.  
Host Australians in District 6040
This is a Great Time for District 6040! We have an exciting Group Study Exchange--- Oceans to Outback between Southern Australia and Rivers to Ranges of Northern Missouri! We are beginning to arrange the visit of our Inbound GSE from Rotary District 9520 Australia and YOU will want to be a part of that!     
 
District 9520 is part of four states--South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.  There are about 1400 Rotarians in 51 Clubs in the district.  The main population center is Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia.  The team leader is a Past District Governor and there are 4 professional women who make up the team.  They will be in our district from March 31-April 28, 2019.  Clubs may host the team for 3-4 days during this period. 
 
Now is the time to let us know of your interest hosting, (or co-hosting with other clubs) for 3-4 days during this spring.  Several clubs near each other can have great fun sharing the group and enjoying International Rotary Fellowship.  

Please complete the survey this week, so we can include you!
