Last week, District Governor David “Sully” Sullivan sent the
following message to President Greg to announce that our Past President Helen
Reisler has been nominated as District Governor for 2005-2006:
Allow me to
congratulate the Rotary Club of New
York in that the Nominations Committee has
recommended that Past President Helen Reisler serve as District Governor for
the period 2005-2006. In addition you will be aware that this year's Leadership
Team made recommendations early on to the Clubs for consideration of creating
the position of District Governor Designate. It was met with overwhelming support
and I am additionally pleased to inform you that Mr. Charles Gruetzner of Peekskill Rotary Club has
been recommended to serve as District Governor for the year 2006-2007. Lastly,
you should know that a former member of the Rotary Club of NY and indeed the
last District Governor from NYRC, PDG Louis P. Mahler, Jr. has been nominated
by the Committee to serve as District Treasurer 2004-2006. Greg, I am
particularly pleased to see in the recommendation of Helen as District Governor
Nominee the appropriate culmination of the inclusion and closure of what has been
described to me as an "interesting period of NYRC and the District." I
know that you in particular have worked very hard in this area and your Club
should be very proud of one of its own poised to lead the District to new
heights. Once again my congratulations to all in NYRC and I look forward to welcoming
you all to District Conference in Bermuda this

Sweden Day will be catered by the famous Aquavit Restaurant, which is rated by the
Zagat Survey as extraordinary to perfection for its food and very good to
excellent for its service. The meal includes beer, wine and Absolut vodka from Sweden. My
mother, by the way, was born in Sweden

to sing a popular Swedish drinking song. Sweden
