On August 3, 2016, the Wilmington Rotary Club was honored to have District Governor Sheryl Meehan and District Governor Elect Dave Gardner visit for a meeting.

Governor Meehan, herself a former member of the Wilmington Club, spoke of Rotary International President John Germ's theme for the 2016-2017 year, "Be a Gift to the World."  She also provided updates on Rotary's efforts to eradicate polio worldwide (we are thisclose), the district's Homelessness and Hunger Initiative, and the district's Rotoplast missions to operate on individuals with cleft lip and palate anomalies.
