As Rotary year 2015-16 draws to a close, it's time for your District 5240 Newsletter team, Scott Phillips (President Elect, RC of Goleta Noontime) and me, to put away our quills, ink and keyboards as the new 2016-17 team, under the leadership of Becky Savell (RC of Simi Valley) takes control. Scott and I would like to thank all the loyal Rotarian readers, contributors and newsmakers who've made this year very memorable to us. A special thanks to District Governor Jim Bell for his stewardship and contributions.
Going forward, if you would like something published in the monthly newsletter, address your material to and make sure it arrives by the 20th of the month preceding the new newsletter (for example, all material for the July newsletter must be submitted no later than June 20th.) Late arriving material will either be filed or published in the following newsletter if the topic remains timely. The email address above will go to Cindy Jacoby.
