Imagine a World with Clean Water...
March Message from DG Gerry Taylor
March is Rotary’s Water and Sanitation month. This month’s theme highlights the work of Rotarians around the world doing good to provide clean water which in turn provides sanitation for better health for all. District 6910 and many of our clubs are committed to providing funding and service projects to enhance the quality of water and sanitation both in our district communities and around the world.
Both District 6910 and many of our clubs are committed to supporting HANWASH. HANWASH is an ongoing multi-year project to provide clean water throughout all of Haiti. Between poverty and natural disasters, Haiti has experienced disease, death and declining health issues for their lack of clean water. HANWASH is making a difference. Each year, more and more areas of Haiti are getting clean water. There is much more to be done. Your district leadership is committed to seeing this project through. It will take many years, but we are light years ahead of where we were in Haiti just several years ago. I know a number of clubs and several individuals, including our own Suchet Loois, who are deeply engaged in this project. Let’s keep this effort strongly moving ahead.
On the district level, I would like to honor and celebrate the clubs located around Lake Lanier. These clubs have been instrumental for a number of years in providing Lake Lanier “clean up” efforts. There are other areas of our district that support and provide clean water and sanitation efforts. A number of our annual district grants are used by local clubs to enhance the quality of water, and to improve sanitation efforts. Thanks to all for your leadership in providing clean water and better sanitation!
Lastly, let me say that we are all indebted to District 6910 Membership Co-Chairs, Scott Yochum and Pepper Pettit. They have visited 50 clubs in our district this year and over 300 clubs in our zone over the last several years. Due to their efforts and the efforts of many club leaders, District 6910 is leading Zone 34 in net new members. We also are among the top of all districts in North America for net new members. We have a chance to be the number one district in both categories, but we need to stay the course through June 30, 2023. Congratulations to Scott and Pepper and to each of you for your recruitment of new members, the development of new members and the retention of existing members.
See you soon in Chattanooga as we move on down the tracks towards the end of the 2022-23 Rotary year.

Lake Lanier Area Clubs Partner to Promote Water Quality Awareness Monday, March 6, 2023
Four years ago this May, Jeff and Jess Williams were enjoying Don Carter State Park and swimming in Lake Lanier with their three sons, including their youngest, Justus. In the days following, Justus started to get sick and doctors told them that the illness should pass. But the boy’s condition worsened. He developed an infection and died less than two weeks later. Learn how this unfortunate event, became the inspiration behind this Rotary club project centered around water quality in our communities.Read More
