Volunteers Needed on February 2

Here is a link to sign up to help at this spectacular show choir contest: Show Choir Signup. If you would like to volunteer, but have difficulty navigating this webpage, please send an email message to Steve Hanson (email@example.com).
Assistant Governor Needed
- D6000 is in need of an assistant governor for the cluster Clinton, Muscatine, Tipton and West Liberty. See message below from District Governor Elect Erna Morain:
Each year the District needs some new Assistant Governors (AGs). It’s a great opportunity to be more involved in Rotary beyond your own club. The AGs generally serve for a 3 year term. They provide a great service to our Rotary Clubs. Our excellent AG coordinator is Past District Governor (PDG) Susan Herrick from the Rotary Club of Boone.
In prior years there was a preference for past club presidents to serve as AGs. Incoming RI President, Mark Maloney, has said this limits our opportunities too much and encourages active Rotarians who have not been club presidents to volunteer as an AG. We provide training for new AGs which will adequately prepare them for this exciting position.
I would like your recommendations for the 2019-2020 year for the following areas:
Area 9 Clinton, Muscatine, Tipton, West Liberty
Area 15 Burlington, Fort Madison, Keokuk, Mt. Pleasant Noon, Mt. Pleasant
Area 7 Coralville North Corridor, Iowa City, Iowa City AM, Iowa City downtown
Area 8 Bettendorf, Davenport, Iowa Quad-Cities, North Scott
Area 10 Albia, Knoxville, Oskaloosa, Pella
Please share this information with your club members and please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you know of someone who might be interested for consideration.
Thank you very much for your service to Rotary, your club and our District. I look forward to hear from you.
Greetings from Waukee,
Rotary District 6000 Governor 2019-2020
Past President Waukee Rotary Club
