Aloha District 5000 Rotarians -
April is Rotary Magazine Month. Have you read your Rotarian lately? There are great articles every month highlighting the great work done by Rotarians around the world. A great way to make learning more about Rotary both fun and entertaining is to include some of the facts or pieces of information in your bulletin and use it as a way to "quiz" your members at a meeting. Prizes or points can be given to those that answer correctly, with the points adding up to a great prize quarterly. Pass the Rotarian on after you have read it. Donate it to a doctor or dentist office or to your local hair salon, anywhere where there are lots of people waiting. Replace your address label with a label identifying your club, meeting day/time and a contact phone number. You may be surprised at who might be interested.
We have completed two District Assemblies, one in Hilo and one in Kona. Assemblies will be held on Kauai on April 6th , Maui on April 13 and Oahu on April 20st. We look forward to seeing you at one of these. There are several new classes this year and I am sure that you will benefit from attending them. This is the last quarter of this Rotary year. Let’s make it count! There is still a lot of time to build your club’s membership (we have 184 new members to date, 61% of goal) (28 Premier Clubs) and to ensure your club meets its Foundation goals, EREY and 100% status as a Paul Harris Fellow or Benefactor club. If you need help, PDG Ayman’s team will be glad to assist you by coming to your club to talk about the foundation.
DGE Phil Sammer is working hard to assemble his full team for the coming year. Please assist him by getting all of your reports in on time.
District conference is coming up fast, May 17th to 19th at the beautiful Turtle Bay Hotel. We have bus service from the airport to the hotel. Our goal is 400 attending this conference. Please make sure you have members coming from your clubs as we will be voting on changes to the policy manual and the foundation manual.
We just completed a three day RYLA camp on Oahu and it was fantastic. Please congratulate Dave Livingston and his team for all of the hard work. Please see his attached report and pictures.
Aloha, DG Chet
