It was a beautiful, crisp fall Saturday in Hickory, NC as Rotarians and Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) Facilitators gathered at Lenoir Rhyne University to expand their knowledge and increase their effectiveness as Rotarians.  The Rotarians gathered, discussed, learned, and shared ideas and experience with each other during this RLI event.  They had fun, made new friends, and left carrying ideas back to their respective Rotary Clubs to improve or revitalize them.

The campus of Lenoir Rhyne was beautiful and the facilities were excellent.  The Facilitators and participants came from all over the Carolinas. One of the Facilitators was the sitting District Governor of District 7670, Billi Black!  What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday in November!  As the event drew to a close, the participants eagerly shared how they would continue on to the next stage of RLI to continue their learning and experience sharing journey in Rotary.
