President Elect Training Seminar (P.E.T.S.) is for incoming club Presidents. This training is required by Rotary International and it's also a great opportunity to network with other future Presidents. The event will be at the Mayo Civic Center Rochester, Minnesota, beginning early with breakfast on Friday followed by a day and a half of training.  You are invited to attend the Thursday evening welcome dinner so you are there and ready to go early the next morning.  Presidents-Nominee are also welcome to attend if they want to get a jump start on their year as President.  For hotels, training information and to register click HERE.

Our service project for the 2014-2015 Rotary year so far has resulted in over 9000 new, warm coats for kids in our District !

This project is helping kids in your community stay warm and healthy, allowing them to attend school and feel better about themselves.   Our goal was to raise enough money to purchase 4000 coats and we are extremely pleased with the generosity of D6000 Rotarians.
