The Natchitoches Rotary Club welcomed District 6190 Governor (2016-2017) Cindy Cespiva to a special program focused on a new direction and vision for Rotary as well as the theme “Rotary Serves Humanity”. Governor Cespiva outlined the district goals for the Rotary year and noted that the district will provide leadership, encouragement and support to Rotarians to advance individual engagement in community, club, district and internationally. High on the list of personal goals was to define and strengthen the position of assistant governors. Supporting this objective she announced that Natchitoches Past President, Josh Manuel has been appointed Assistant District Governor working with the Natchitoches, Many, and Winnfield clubs. She complemented the club on its outstanding year of service to the community and made special note of the club’s recent growth. She also encouraged the membership to support “Paul Harris Fellows” and the Foundation Giving Programs. The District Governor closed with a challenge to invite people to join Rotary because we think it will suit them and that their skills, experiences and passions will be a great asset to our activities.
