Notes from your District Governor
July Message from Evan Kurtz
Hello District 7170 Rotarians! In this, my first monthly message as your Governor, I’ll start with a short introduction.
I am a Charter member of the Dryden club which will be celebrating 15 years this fall. Twice I have had the honor of being Club President (09-10 and 17-18), was an Assistant Governor for 3.5 years, a Foundation Area Director for 3, and have served on various District committees as part of my journey to the Governor position. My wife, and fellow Rotarian, Tracy and I have hosted 3+ exchange students, been to 4 Rotary International conventions (all in North America), and are both PHFs committed to Rotary.
