Duncan SC RLI Sees 6 Graduate; Good Experience for All

November 8 saw no football game for either Clemson or South Carolina, but did see the completion of Rotary Leadership Institute Parts I, II and III. The sessions were held at the BMW Community Center on the Tyger River Campus of Spartanburg Community College.

District 7750 Governor Tom Faulkner welcomed the group and pinned six new RLI graduates: Andreas Brockman, Rotary Club of Lancaster, Watson Dorn, Rotary Club of Greenwood, Robert Hanley, Rotary Club of North Greenville, Leon Wilfredo, Rotary Club of Mauldin, Russell Stall, Rotary Club of Greenville, and Edward Sternberg, Rotary Club of Greenville East. In addition to the six Part III participants, there were 6 participants in Part II and 9 participants in Part I.

Thanks to RLI Regional Coordinator Bill Parker and his wife Barbara for organizing the event. Thanks as well to the following RLI Faculty: Lorraine Angelino, Bruce Baker, Barbara Shayeb-Hellou, Randy Hollister, Gene Moorhead, and Bob Stinson. Bob and Randy had the longest ride, about five hours one way! The final thank you is to the Rotarians who invested a day of networking and sharing to broaden their experience as a Rotarian. The facilities in Duncan are centrally located in the District and conveniently near both I-26 and I-85. We plan to use this facility again this spring for the next RLI. Submitted by: George Fletcher, District 7750 RLI Coordinator

Rotarians in Richmond brave drizzle, share Rotary!

Part I participants learned about Ethics, 
our Rotary World, Leadership, 
Membership, Foundation, and Service.
It was chilly and drizzling on November 1st at John Tyler Community College in Chester, Virginia, but the weather did not dampen the RLI spirit. Thirty participants and eight facilitators enjoyed a day of learning, fun, and fellowship.

Rotary District 7600 Lt. Governor Mike Jallo, Past President Boo Elmore, and Gene Moorhead from South Carolina (D 7750) kicked off Parts I, II, and III respectively, and different facilitators led activities, discussions and exercises throughout the day. Other facilitators included PDG Steve Cook, President Colleen Bonadonna (D7610), PDG Jim Probsdorfer and PP Kim Garey (D6700).

We were all fortunate at this event to be led by RLI Regional Coordinator George Tyson, who will step down as of January 1, 2015 to begin his training as DGE. Congratulations, George, and many, many thanks!
Part II class had just finished hearing about Communications 
and Public Image when this photo was taken.  We have 
their permission to use in our RLI and District publications!
