Rotary District 7690 held its annual conference this year from April 23-25th at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. For the 3rd consecutive year, the Rotary Club of Mocksville was awarded the Governor’s Gold Club Award.
“We were excited to meet the criteria for Gold Club again this year,” said Jane Simpson, President of the Rotary Club of Mocksville. “It has been through the efforts of all of the club members that we were able to accomplish it, but having Assistant Governor Carl Boon to keep us on track was invaluable!”
Award Recognizes Service to the Community
This award is given each year in recognition of a club’s service in the local community, at the international level, and for its contributions to the Rotary Foundation. Membership is also recognized. The Rotary Club of Mocksville received an additional award for the highest growth in membership this year for a club its size.

WWII Memorial Flight of Honor Campaign
Located in the heart of North Carolina, District 7690 has been in the news recently for their WWII Memorial Flight of Honor campaign to send local WWII Veterans to see the National WWII Memorial for free. The memorial, built in 1994, honors the service of these fine men and women.
If you know a WWII Veteran who has not been able to visit the WWII Memorial or you are interested in volunteering for this important project, please contact Jeff Sims at JSims@bankofgranite.com for more information.
