DG 5130 Barbara Spangler
Rotary Club of Valley of the Moon (Santa Rosa)
District Governor 2018- 2019
Welcome to Rotary International District 5130 in beautiful Northern California!
I am so excited to be your District Governor this 2018-2019 Rotary. We are 47 clubs strong in District 5130, and we’ve taken the RI President’s theme ‘Be The Inspiration’ to heart. RI President Barry Rassin chose this theme because he believes that what motivates Rotarians is their work. That’s why, at the District level, our theme takes the promise of inspiration to the local level where we will ‘Do What Matters’.
This year, our District will work to support and strengthen clubs, focus and increase humanitarian service and enhance public image and awareness. You’ll see these three pillars in everything we do this year. We can choose to lead and to inspire each other as our year together unfolds.
We want to be inspired and inspiring, and we want to do what matters. As Rotarians, we truly know how rewarding our work can be here at home and around the world.
As your District Governor, I am committed to our success and will work hard to help you have the best Rotary year ever!
