Milt Matthews Governor Elect Hospitality

The Program

For the past 53 years Brighton Rotary Club and District 7120 have home hosted 520 Governors Elect and their spouses from 43 countries worldwide. The idea for the program was conceived in 1969 by PDG Milt Matthews, and has been copied by many other Districts throughout the United States.

Each Governor Elect guest is assigned two Rotary hosts so they are able to visit different areas of the district. The exchange is made in the middle of the period and the second host gets them to the airport for their trip to the International Assembly, held the following week.  The guests live with the hosts, see the local sites, join in on local activities and where possible attend club meetings.  The guests will leave for the International Assembly with a bevy of new friends that will last a lifetime.

This year, we will be offering either a 4 or 8-day home stay in the Finger Lakes Region of the State of New York the week of 7 January to 15 January for the 8-day period or 11 January to 15 January for the 4-day period the week prior to the Rotary International Assembly in Orlando.
