We had the privilege of hosting our District Governor Joe McBride on January 24.  Joe is a Butte native who returned to his hometown six years ago after living in the Midwest for about 25 years.  
Joe has a passion for Rotary.  He and his wife Libby have hosted three foreign exchange students in their home--Agnes from Indonesia, Priya from India, and Chris from South Africa.  He has previously served as International Chair, Club President and Assistant Governor.  
Joe explained his goals for his year as District Governor, including strengthening RYLA, Interact and Roteract, and a new program called STRIVE--a mentoring program for students who have faced academic challenges.  
After addressing the club, Joe joined Helena Rotary in their Fourth Wednesday event, packing "birthday bags" for Helena Food Share.
