5910 Rotarians,
 
Congratulations on “making it through” the pandemic and now working toward being on the other side of it! District 5910 can celebrate the fact that our members and our clubs have found ways to adapt in order to continue meeting and providing service in your communities in ways that conformed with the guidance provided by health officials. Many Rotary districts were not so lucky, having lost clubs due to the lockdowns.

Through your commitment and dedication, you kept going in whatever manner worked for your club and your members, and we can hopefully now begin the return to normal activities as more and more people are vaccinated.

As we near the end of this Rotary year, our International President Holger Knaack has reaffirmed his focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Our district has made some progress on those priorities, but more work is still ahead:

 
 
June is designated Rotary Fellowships Month to recognize the importance of international fellowship and goodwill among Rotarians with similar recreational and vocational interests, promote increased participation in fellowships, and increase understanding of this program.

What are the benefits for Rotarians in joining the Rotary Fellowships? Fellowship provides opportunities for Rotarians to make lasting friendships outside their own Club, District or country. Fellowships contribute to the advancement of world understanding and peace. Also, Fellowships serve as an incentive for attracting new members to Rotary and retaining our existing members. Indeed, Rotary Fellowship, together with the Rotarian Action Groups, serve as an effective tool in promoting membership development and should be actively promoted in our Districts.
 
There are many Fellowships that would be of interest to our members, and they are detailed on http://www.rotary.org/fellowships.
The Rotary District 5910 Annual Conference was held Thursday, April 22nd through Saturday, April 24th, 2021.  The second virtual conference the District experienced, we are happy to report that 194 Rotarians and Rotaractors attended the all-club meeting to kick off the Conference.  At least thirteen clubs decided to host their weekly club meeting in conjunction with the kick-off event as guest speaker, Sylvia Whitlock, shared her story of becoming the first female president of a Rotary Club.  Global Grant Scholar, Sakurah Fisher, joined the Zoom session from Japan, making it a truly international experience.  On Thursday, we also heard from Rhonda Kennedy about the opportunities for Rotarians to volunteer at the 2022 Rotary International Convention in Houston, Texas.

Citations are given to clubs for achieving goals that strengthen Rotary and their club. Goals include increasing club membership, developing sustainable service projects, giving to The Rotary Foundation, and building awareness of Rotary in your community.
 
We encourage every club to set their goals and a date to reach their first citation!
 
More information on how to earn a citation can be found HERE.

The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors have both unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: supporting the environment.

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

For the health and safety of all participants, District 5910 will conduct all district level events virtually in place of in-person meetings, at least through the end of December.  Rotary International strongly encourages clubs to consider virtual meetings as well, but leaves the final choice to the individual club based upon local conditions and health advisories.  Rotary is monitoring updates and recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure the safest and most appropriate actions are taken for our members.  Read the latest RI response to COVID-19:
