From the desk of the Rapidan District Governor, Alexander MacDonald:

With Spring just around the corner, I’m glad that we will soon say goodbye to the cold and snowy days of Winter. Thanks to Linda Bradshaw, our web site for Rapidan is finally up and running. Now we can stay better-informed on the latest happenings in our district. I, as your Governor, am in the process of visiting our local clubs to say hello and to keep in touch on a more personal level.

Some issues have arisen in our district. Our district cabinet is in the process of resolving these issues. Overall, our clubs are doing well and we look forward to some great fundraising activities in the near future. Please check our district website to view what each of the clubs will be doing.

I wish all our Ruritan brothers and sisters good health and well-being in the days and weeks ahead.

Yours in Ruritan,

Al MacDonald

Rapidan District Governor
