Sadagopan Govindan visited Indianola during the 2016 National Balloon Classic and also visited our club on August 19th. In the process he exchanged one of his Club's banners for one of our Club's 'Rotary T-Shirts'. 
Sadagopan  is from the Rotary Club of Chennai IT City (Club No.84442), Rotary International Dist.3230, Chennai, Tamilnadu, India.  He joined in the Rotary Movement during the year 1988 and has served in various posts, such as Club Treasurer, Club Secretary and Club President. He has many Awards at District Level.  His second son is a Rotarian in Rotary Club of Innsbrook (RI Dist.7600), Richmond, Virginia.
Sadagopan is an Advocate, which he stated is the same as an attorney in our country.  While in Iowa, he has stayed with his son who lives in West Des Moines.  The family traveled to Chicago and visited Rotary's International Office and met with our current RI President. He plans to attend the Rotary Convention in Atlanta next year and will visit our club again while in Iowa.  
Thank you for visiting and we wish you a safe return home next fall.
