Dear Rotary family:

We may have started our year as acquaintances​,​ but we bonded as family by the year's end.

I am so grateful to each one of you who welcomed and hosted me​,​ and to all the leaders who supported me​​.

There are so many people who made this year the success it ​is​. I won't named them here in person. I did thank a few at the changeover dinner​,​ and many others I will continue to reach out to thank in person.

Thanks to all of you​,​ I can say I leave you a district in good shape in membership growth, financial giving, ​and ​sweat equity service​;​ our youth programs are on the rebound​;​ and​ with​ ​​​​clubs and members who are ​​rejuvenated to grow and serve.
 
As I move on to responsibilities at Zone developing future Rotary leaders for the next couple of years​,​ I am always grateful for all your love and support. 
 
My last duties as governor on June 28 is the installation of my beloved wife Gayle as the president of the Rotary Club of Orleans. I am so delighted that Gayle has chosen to take on this leadership role. I am confident that she, her team and the entire club will do marvelous things this coming year.
 
I wish our incoming governor Dr. Susan Bellor an amazing year. I know she will make us all proud.
 
Peace always
Governor Nabil Oudeh
