The attendees, 10 for Part I; 5 for Part II; and 8 for Part III, were excited, motivated, and more than willing to learn and to share! The Facilitators came from five Districts including one Facilitator who was willing to drive over five hours to share his knowledge and experience with his Rotarian attendees. Dynamic discussions were heard throughout the event including the breaks and the noon meal. What a great and enthusiastic event! District 7750 needs to receive special recognition in that seven of the eight RLI Graduates are from District 7750! Well done PDG Lorraine Angelino and Governor Tom Faulkner of District 7750!
All in all, it was a great event at a great location, and everyone left filled with knowledge, excitement, new ideas, and new friends! Report by Western Carolinas' Regional Coordinator Bill Parker
