District Governor - Jose Velasco

Our District Governor for 2022-2023, Jose Velasco, came to speak at our rotary meeting 9/14.  Jose is a delight and brings so much joy and positivity to Rotary.  He has served Rotary in several capacities, include Midvale Club President 2015-17, as a Positive Peace Mentor, USGlobal Grant coach, a committee member of the first District Conference held outside the country and Chair of the Virtual Rotaract Pan-American Conference in 2020.

Nominated to be a District Governor in May of 2020, he began his training preparing him to be the 107th District Governor for Utah 5420 during the Rotary year 2022 -2023.  He challenges us all to “imagine a world that deserves our best.”

Blue Moon Festival - Holladay Arts Council

 
We had a great time volunteering for the Holladay Arts Council 2022 Blue Moon Festival.  The annual festival consists of live music, food trucks, artisan booths, children's tent, games & is a fantastic night out with family and friends.  For information on other events with the Holladay Arts Council, visit holladayarts.org
 
This August, we welcomed Felecia Barrett, Executive Director of Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy, a non-profit that fosters people to people diplomacy.  Their values, similar to the Rotary, include respect for all people and diverse perspectives, personal and social responsibilities, a belief that the people of the world are interconnected, and open and respectful dialogue.  For 55 years, UCCD has partnered to bring short term professional exchange programs to Utah.  They host the Ambassador John and Marcia Price World Affairs lecture series, Fireside Chats podcast, Young Diplomats of Utah, and classes at Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes.  We appreciate her taking the time to connect with our club.  To learn more, go to utahdiplomacy.org
This July, we had our first Potluck Social at the Holladay City Hall with members from other local rotary clubs.  We welcomed Mary French as our special guest, who spearheaded The Dictionary Project, which the Holladay Rotary Club has supported annually for decades.  The Dictionary Project is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that is working toward providing a dictionary to every student in the United States.  The goal of this program is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary.  Meeting with Mary was a delight, and a great reminder that each of us can make an immense impact on the world with dedication and perseverance.
