District 779 has 49 clubs in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts plus 20 clubs in the province of Quebec and the Northwest Territories, Canada.  The clubs stretch from Newburyport, Massachusetts to Iqaluit, Frobisher Bay, Northwest Territories, Canada.  District 779 is Rotary International’s largest geographic district in the world.  Nineteen clubs lie in French-speaking Quebec but this is not a problem for bilingual Drouin who as District Governor is required to visit each club at least once during his year as District Governor.
