District Governor Installation for Jimmie Gorski
Jimmie Gorski, DG 2020-2021
Date: Sunday, June 28, 2020
Rotary International Director Peter Kyle with DG Jimmie Gorski
What a great installation ceremony for our new incoming District Governor 2020-2021 Jimmie Gorski! It was nicely done for such a very first and special virtual installation ceremony due to this Covid-19 pandemic.
Not only do we thank this planning team led by AG Sue Weber including Carolyn Richards from Annapolis Rotary Club, Sean McAlister, the incoming DGN and RLI Chair from Capitol Hill Rotary Club but also the Master of Ceremony by our PDG and District Rotary Foundation Chair Rich Glover, Jimmie was proudly pinned by our incoming Rotary International Director Peter Kyle from our own Capitol Hill Rotary Club with that privileged DG pin. What a precious moment!
Who said this pandemic is only a threat to our lives? It opens so many more opportunities to connect us all over the world together. It reflects this new Rotary year of theme perfectly. In this installation ceremony, we saw many Rotarians with their family connected to watch this virtual installation ceremony, to virtually toast to our incoming DG Jimmie, all the hearty welcome remarks and congratulations from our past District Governors, Club Presidents and other Individuals. Thank you for all of your dedication and support to our District!
