District Conference 2020
Jekyll Island Conference Cancelled

You should have received this communication from District Governor Jim Squire on Monday...

Good morning District 6900 Rotarians. I hope all of you are well and finding innovative ways of enjoying time with your families and communicating with your fellow Rotarians. I have enjoyed seeing so many ways that club Presidents are reaching out on a regular basis to club members, and how many clubs are having virtual meetings and Family of Rotary virtual events.

I think I have always been a kind of glass half full guy, and I am optimistic that each new day will bring good news that the Coronavirus has flattened in new cases or even turned downward. That will certainly happen one day, hopefully soon, but probably not in time to hold the successful District Conference that we were all excited about 30 days from now.

I am therefore cancelling the District Conference as planned, and scheduling a District Celebration Saturday, June 13th, at the Bibb Mill Event Facility in Columbus, GA on the banks of the beautiful Chattahoochee River. Taking a page from the District Conference we will be celebrating at Jimmy’s Fish Camp with a Happy Hour from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM followed by a Lunch and Awards Presentations. Stay tuned for more information on the event and how to register.

For those who have registered for the District Conference your registration fee will be automatically refunded to your credit card within the next 10 days. You do not have to send a request for your refund. Likewise, if you made a hotel reservation with the information provided on the District website your reservation will automatically be cancelled. If you made your reservation outside the District reservation blocks directly with the hotel or central reservations you will have to personally cancel your reservation. Please let me or District Conference Chairman PDG Blake McBurney,, know if you have any questions.

Stay safe and stay well.
