Welcome to the new Rotary Year, 2014-15! Let me introduce myself and the best part of me, my spouse Mary.


I’m Carroll Greenwaldt from Longview. It is my distinct honor to serve as your District Governor of District 5830 this year. Mary and I are both Rotarians, from the Rotary Club of Longview. We look forward to meeting you as we visit your club and all of the 43 clubs across this great part of N/E Texas, Southeastern Oklahoma, and Texarkana, Arkansas. …
Our RI President Gary Huang (pronounced “Whong”) from Taiwan, has chosen the theme for this Rotary year to be “Light Up Rotary!” It is my strong desire to help you to do just that:

  • To light up your Club as we strengthen every club in the District,
  • To light up your Communities through the visible and vital service work you do,
  • To light up the world, as we eradicate Polio in the next several years, and do life- changing Global Service work,
  • To lead and mentor youth through numerous Rotary programs, and
  • To strengthen our commitment to The Rotary Foundation, the “engine” that drives so much positive change, benefiting millions of people in our world.

We are going to have a wonderful year! Mary and I look forward to working with you to do great things together. Let me hear from you on how I can help you.
