Welcome to Rotary District 5890, composed of sixty-five vibrant clubs across the greater Houston metropolitan area.  The Rotarians in our area truly exemplify Rotary's motto of ''Service Above Self'' with projects in local communities as well as international projects around the world.  Rotary International is working diligently to cross the finish line of eradicating Polio worldwide and District 5890 is working hard to aid in that effort.  So whether your passion is in water projects, literacy, hunger, health, or peace, Rotary has something to offer you.

I encourage you to explore our website for local events and service opportunities as well as information about District 5890.  There are a variety of clubs that meet for breakfast, lunch, and happy hour; and we even have an e-Club for those people who travel for work or have limited time for weekly meetings.  There is a place for you in our Rotary family.

ImageHere are five examples and tips of how you can use social media to help convey "big picture" information about your Rotary Club.
1) Use Facebook’s Timeline to organize continuing coverage:  The Wall Street Journal used Facebook to create a timeline of its coverage of the Facebook IPO by creating a separate timeline as a social landing page for its coverage of the deal. The timeline recounts Facebook’s journey since 2004 when it was launched and includes links to related articles on wsj.com. The paper knew the IPO knew it would be an ongoing story and knew readers were interested, which are key components before undertaking an effort like this.
2) Use Twitter to renew attention to historic figures:  WNYC operates two Twitter feeds specifically for its extensive archives, such as the late New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia’s audio clips of weekly broadcasts during World War II (it has close to 400 followers on Twitter). Other links to audio from WNYC’s archives showcase history, much “like a treasure hunt”.
