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

Who Moved My Cheese?


From the desk of Lt Governor, Linda Bradshaw:

February 11, 2014

Last night I had the opportunity to attend a meeting of the Chancellor Ruritan Club in Fredericksburg. On the agenda was a presentation by Paul Scott, which was deferred to a future date. Paul shared with me that his presentation was titled “Adjusting to Change in our Lives” and was based on the book written by Spencer Johnson, M.D titled “Who Moved My Cheese?”

Interested in learning more about the general concept of the presentation, I found this video on YouTube, and feel that the message is timely and important for all service clubs to take into consideration as they look towards the future. So I decided to share this video on the District’s website, in the hopes that other Ruritans may find value in the message as well.

If you want to share this message with your own club, and have access to a projector in your meeting location, you may want to use this slide show, below:
