DG Bill Ballou’s message to District 5630

To my District 5630 Rotary Teammates: "The First Team of the Second Century" is one title given to our upcoming Rotary year. In this context we are "teammates" and, we have been handed the great Rotarian legacy of "Service above Self'. It is now our challenge...

DG Dian Edwards’ Message to District 5630

The most sincere message I can deliver to every District 5630 Rotarian is one of gratitude for all you do to provide service above self in your community and throughout the world. You and your contributions of time, talent, and treasure prepare the way to “Peace through Service.”

The Rotary year ahead of us will be a year of transition to encourage our district and clubs to participate more fully in six primary service areas:

  • Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution
  • Disease Prevention and Treatment
  • Water and Sanitation
  • Maternal and Child Health
  • Basic Education and Literacy
  • Economic and Community Development.

We will provide clubs with the tools and resources they will need to embrace these new program opportunities. Under the leadership of PDG Dave Snow, we will continue to assist our clubs with strategic planning through “visioning” workshops. We will implement a new initiative through the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) that will educate club representatives about Rotary and the many program opportunities and services available through our Rotary organization. Clubs that participate in these programs will be well equipped to meet eligibility requirements for the RI Presidential Citation and Governor’s Citation.

Our Membership Challenge

Just as the picture depicts, our membership numbers in the district are at crisis point. This is certainly not to blame any one person, club or challenge. We have arrived here as the consequence of our lack of action, and acceptance that we have a problem. In a...

District 5630 Rotarian of the Year Award Nominations

Being a member of a Rotary club does not make someone a Rotarian, it only makes them a member of a Rotary club.  A Rotarian helps the club achieve its goals and acts with high ethical standards.  A Rotarian also participates in the club’s community projects both...
