Program:  District Governor Chris Knapp and his wife Vernette joined our meeting today. DG Knapp shared his goals for the District for the year. District giving to the Foundation is set for $460,000, Polio Plus for $70,000, membership growth at 2% for District 6000 He likened Rotary Clubs to spots on a Dalmatian.  Dogs are dogs but the spots when looked at closely are all different!! Rotarians bring tremendous strengths to the table.  This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Rotary which will be celebrated at the Annual Conference in Atlanta.
