Rotary District Governor Les Mitkos has only been a Rotarian for seven years, but said he's lived a "Rotarian life".

Rotarians are challenged to follow the Four Way Test. It deals with fairness, consideration of others, truthfulness and building good will. Mitkos said his life in the ministry and in the military has given him the opportunity to live that Rotarian life. He served in a variety of outposts during his military life and has pastored various Lutheran churches throughout the country, so his life has been filled with service. Rotary's motto is "Service Above Self" so, once again, there's that connection.

Mitkos said he had three goals in his remarks to the Effingham Noon Rotary Club, encourage and empower. He said he would support the club in its endeavors, he encouraged Rotarians to continue to serve and to look for ways to serve better, and tried to empower members to grow the family of Rotarians.


Mitkos said, "I'm proud to be a Rotarian".
