Charlotte Holds Successful Event Despite Storm

District 7680 RLI Chair Georgia Oakes
& Regional RLI Coordinator Gene Morehead
In spite of the impending threat of bad weather resulting from Hurricane Matthew, 23 eager Rotarians from all around Zone 33 gathered at the lovely LEEDS Gold certified UNC Center City building in Charlotte on Friday, October 7th to complete one of three parts of Rotary Leadership Institute.

District 7680 Governor Tom Smith was there to greet them and encourage them on, and returned to pin the graduates. Sensing the enthusiasm in the room after the sessions were held, Tom asked for a show of hands on who planned now to go to the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta in 2017 and a clear majority of hands shot up!! article & photo by Georgia Oakes & Ed Shearin.

Past Board Chair Clymer Passes

Past RLI Board Chair
Abe Clymer 
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Past Board Chair and charter Faculty member of Zone 33 RLI, PDG Abe Clymer on September 1, 2016. Abe was Board Chair in 2013-2015, and a long time staff and faculty member of the institute. He was among the group of Rotarians in District 7570 that brought RLI to Zone 33 from the Northeast America Division in the late 1990s, paving the way for its adoption as a zone wide program in 2003.

Abe was a Rotary leader by word and action. His talents and friendship will long be missed. Click here for the In Memoriam. Bevin Wall, Zone 33 RLI Executive Director.
