2016- 2017 Rotary Club of Fortuna President




Howdy Partners!

I am honored to serve as your District Governor for the 2016-2017 Rotary year!  Paula and I truly look forward to meeting you all during my club visits and hearing of all the great things you do to make your communities and this world a better place.  Rotary Serving Humanity, our Rotary International President John Germ’s theme this year, is a perfect statement for what we do.

As Rotary evolves to remain relevant and effective in today’s ever-changing societies and the generations that drive them, Rotary’s leaders have adjusted traditional guidelines to allow clubs and their members more flexibility and more opportunity.

Member engagement, value propositions, and relevance are goals that clubs should be striving for, all of course while having incredible amounts of FUN!!!


2016-2017 marks a milestone year, with the 100 year anniversary of the Rotary Foundation.  In addition, the Rotary International Convention returns to North America, with a huge celebration planned in Atlanta Georgia, June 10-14, 2017.


Finally, I urge you all to plan to gather and celebrate the good works of members and clubs in our district at my DisCon (district conference), May 12-14, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa & Casino in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe, NV.  As I mentioned at PDG Erin’s conference in Napa this year, special rate room reservations for this are available now at


The actual conference registration will be available later.


See y’all on the trail!

Warmest regards,

Wulff A. Reinhold


The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service; SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society; THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life; FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
