Each year Rotary Clubs in their respective districts get a new District Governor.  Aransas Pass and 50 other Clubs are in District 5930.  So, on Monday, July 15, 2019 Ellison Crider, the current District 5930 Governor, visited the Rotary Club of Aransas Pass.  The purpose of his visit was to make us aware of the incoming Rotary International President, Mark Daniel Maloney’s 2019-2020 Rotary Theme, “Rotary Connects With The World”.    He also informed us of his Rotary District 5930 theme, “Rotary Rooted In Service”, and explained the reasons for his selection of that theme.  While visiting. DG Ellison went over our Club’s upcoming goals, service projects, and budget.  He expressed that he felt our Club was sound and productive.  He was particularly impressed with the number of service projects we provide considering we have only 10 members. 
ADG Terri Whitman accompanied DG Ellison.  Her job is to help our Club whenever and wherever necessary to meet our 2019-2020 Goals.
Before departing, DG Ellison presented President James with a Certificate verifying his attendance at the 2019 Lone Star P.E.T.S. (President elect Training Seminar) that was held in Dallas in February 2019.
