October 28, 2020 - International Project Night - International service is one of Rotary’s areas of service and there is a lot of international activity going on in district 5440.  Maybe you have heard about some of the projects and want to learn more about them. Maybe your club has expressed interest in participating in an international activity and you want to get involved.  Or maybe you are an individual with a specific interest in a certain area.

We have scheduled a ZOOM meeting for Wednesday October 28 from 4:00 to 5:30 PM which you can attend from your home on your computer or by telephone so that anyone in the district can find out about our projects in India, Guatemala, South Africa, Liberia, Nepal and Mexico.  During the ZOOM meeting there will be short presentations on the projects and you will have the chance to ask questions. I hope you will be able to attend and see the amazing things that Rotarians in our district are doing.  

In order to be included on this ZOOM teleconference you must register for this event by October 21st.  Then on Monday, October 26th you will receive an email from Kellie with a link and phone number to participate in the call.  You either use the link to attend via your computer OR you use the phone number in which to call in via a phone.

 
February 26-28, 2021 - President Elect Training Seminar - More details to come once registration is open.
