As the newly installed 2017-18 district governor I want to share our district goals with you.  These are based on the Rotary International Goals set forth by President Ian H.S. Riseley of Australia.   By the way he seems to be a pretty cool guy.  He likes upbeat music, obviously with a taste for Australian artists.  AC/DC, Little River Band, Men at Work, Keith Urban, Rick Springfield, Air Supply, the Bee Gees, etc.  I enjoyed that part a lot at the International Assembly in San Diego last January. 
District Goals for 2017-18:
