AROUND THE DISTRICT

IT'S A ROTARY THING!

My fellow District 5960 Rotarians - Welcome to August - one of the best months of the year. There is still a month of summer to enjoy but Fall is right around the corner. I don’t know what you have planned for August but this month I’ll be at 6 club meetings, two bike events, one 5K/10k fundraiser, one parade, and one “taste” of yummy party. The job as governor rocks. I really do enjoy being out in the district. The best part is learning about all the wonderful projects that are occurring. Every day you are out there making a positive difference in the world. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be a part of such an organization. Please remember, that all of us at the district are here to serve you and your clubs. Drop us a line, give me a call. Let us know how we can make this year, your best year yet.

Passport Program

 

The passport program is a 5960 brainchild. That’s right, we are extra special. With the idea of breaking down silos and recognizing that we are all in this together, the passport program rewards each member that gets out and visits other clubs. This does not just include attending another club's meeting but also their service projects, their social events, fundraisers, and anything else you can imagine. You can pick up your physical passport at your club, at the club you are visiting, or at the district. Yes, if your club runs out, we can get you more. When you visit another club, you get them to stamp your passport. If they forgot their stamp at the event, have them initial your passport. We are all trustworthy individuals. At the end of the year, each member will receive one raffle ticket for each stamp/initial in the passport. The raffle is for a limited-edition print by Darren Jones, Jennifer Jones’ brother. Very cool.
 
Next year's Rotary International Convention will be held in Melbourne, Australia.  In addition to the great program and fellowship opportunities offered by the conference itself, a trip Down Under offers the opportunity to explore more of this incredible continent.
 
I hope that you'll join me for an informational webinar to learn more about two opportunities to travel and discover this incredible continent with your fellow Rotarians after the convention.  Both webinars will have the same presentation, so please choose the one that works best for your calendar!

Ukrainian Youth Leadership

White Bear Lake Club member Irina Fursman is hard at work on something called YouLead through her nonprofit that builds relationships and learning through exchanges between the U.S. and Ukraine. Anyway, things are moving fast, and Irina is hoping clubs in the district will consider hosting a student or students for five weeks, beginning in late August, or at the least sponsoring a young person. White Bear Lake Rotary Club is working outside and inside the club for possible hosts.
 
Here is the main fundraising page, which has a lot of the context. https://www.globalsynergygroup.org/youth-leadership-exchange-2022
 
Also here is an attachment about YouLead. You Lead 2022 Student Information
