Bill Sullivan Installed as President at District Event

Jim Major congratulates new Woburn Rotary President Bill Sullivan at District 7930 Installation event.THE ROTARY CLUB OF WOBURN’S new club President Bill Sullivan was installed into office last in the last week of June along with over three dozen of his counterparts from across the Rotary district. Hosted at the Danversport Yacht Club, the kick-off celebration of the 2017-18 Rotary year had a Patriots theme.
District Governor David Gardner commented, “We wanted our club level leaders to make sure they felt supported all around and understand that we’re all in this together, like a team. We encouraged all Rotarians to focus on a project they are passionate about, do that project well, and know that humanity will be better for it.”
The celebration was attended by over 325 people, all there to recognize their local-level leaders, district advisors, and volunteers. Gardner also recognized the role that friends and family play in supporting Rotary volunteers. “Our support teams are our families and friends, no doubt. Many of them help out at Rotary projects and are equally generous with their time and resources. We couldn’t do what we do without them.”
Woburn Rotarian Jim Major was also installed as a Rotary International Assistant Governor for Rotary District 7930. Rotary District 7930 encompasses 47 Rotary Clubs in the Merrimack Valley, North Shore, Cape Ann and Greater Boston areas. A Rotary Assistant Governor is selected by the acting District Governor based on recommendations, achievements, knowledge and experience in Rotary. The primary role of an Assistant Governor is to help the local level club become more effective in areas such as service, membership, public image, and club administration. A Rotary Assistant Governor may also help a Rotary Club connect to another local area project, international service opportunity or provide guidance on accessing the programs available through the Rotary Foundation. During this Rotary Year, Major was assigned to work with the Rotary Clubs of Lexington, Melrose, Reading, and Wilmington and is one of eighteen Assistant Governors selected to serve this year.
This year’s Rotary theme is Rotary: Making a Difference. Rotary International President Ian H.S. Riseley selected the theme and explained, “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”
The new leadership term officially began on July 1, 2017 and Bill will serve until June 30, 2018.
