Welcome to the Rotary District 5060 Home Page!

District 5060 is an international district of 60 clubs and approximately 2,760 Rotarians in central Washington, USA, and south central British Columbia, Canada.  It covers a distance of 550 miles (890 km) from Clearwater, BC, in the north to Prosser, WA, in the south. Principal cities are Yakima and Wenatchee in Washington, and Kelowna and Kamloops in British Columbia. 
The area enjoys a four-season climate, with generally warm summers and mild winters. Agriculture, agribusiness, recreation, and tourism are the primary economic activities, along with a rapidly growing wine industry.

Many of us attended the Zone 24/32 Institute in Winnipeg this September, including (from front-right) DG Vern Nielsen, Rotaractors Jessica Steeves (Kamloops) and Kate Kutzner (Kelowna), DGE Bill Jenkin, Jan Luring, DGN Sherry Chamberlain, PDG Greg Luring, and myself Peter Schultz.  The 5-day event was very successful and one of the high-lights of the entire event was the fellowship demonstrated by Vern's classmates: "The DG Class of 2016-2017".

Recently the Oliver Parks and Recreation Society has undergone a weight room expansion project which resulted in the removal of the toddler playground. This was the only toddler oriented playground in the town.  We are planning for this new playground to be the first fully accessible play space with the addition of sensory play equipment geared towards children with autism.

Here is another "Practical Matters" Membership-growth idea from Wenatchee North Rotary Club...
Generate a public image event in your local community!
Find an opportunity to raise awareness about Rotary and how Rotary supports your local community.
An idea that could be implemented in your community:
Saturday, September 17, 2016  - The 3 Wenatchee Rotary clubs and the East Wenatchee Rotary club manned the concession  stands at the high school football game between Wenatchee High School and the Mt. Boucherie High School from Kelowna, British Columbia. Over 30 Rotarians and their spouses volunteered to man both concession stands so that the high school students who normally run the concession stands could watch their fellow students play the entire football game. 
That's right... Dr. Bob Scott, shown below with Bill Gates, will be one of the guest speakers at this year's District Conference!  Don't miss it.  The story below can be seen at the Zone 24/32 website:  Zone 24/32 Clubrunner
District 7070 in southern Ontario, home District to Bob Scott, has created the Bob Scott Disease Prevention Award to be presented to an individual or organization that is making a difference in the fight against disease. The first recipient of the award is Bill Gates, who was on hand to receive it late last month.
Rotary District 7070 named the award to honor Dr. Bob Scott, past PolioPlus Chair and past RI vice president, for his work as Rotary’s global ambassador in support of Rotary’s fight to end polio. During his eight years as RI PolioPlus Chair, Bob and his wife Ann traveled thousands of miles around the globe. He is credited with having raised millions of dollars from world leaders in the fight to end polio.
Members of the Cashmere Rotary were proud to provide a scoreboard for the Cashmere Bulldog football field.  Funds were contributed from the Cashmere Booster Club and the Cashmere Rotary Club with a matching grant from the District.  What a great way to start the football season with a contribution to the community and great public image for Rotary.
Pictured underneath the old scoreboard are Bruce Cheadle, Randy and Donna Smith, Rick Shorett and John Killian.

The Leavenworth Rotary Club has generously granted $5,000 to establish a fully-supplied science lab at the Hope International School located in Liberia.  The Hope Project is headquartered in Plain, Washington and has been providing assistance dating back to the end of the civil war in Liberia. 
With their help, Hope International School opened its doors to 400 children in November of 2007.  Today, there are 1,200 Pre-K through 12th grade students attending the school.

The Australian Vocational Training Team was transferred from the Moses Lake Area (10) to the Wenatchee Area (9) on May 20.  They toured the Cashmere Museum, Aplets and Cotlets factory, the Leavenworth Fish Hatchery, spent time in the Bavarian City of Leavenworth, and had a potluck with Leavenworth Rotarians.  They went on a 4-hour white water rafting trip Sunday, and ended the day with a picnic with Wenatchee Rotarians.

P.R.I.P. Rick King with D.G.E. Vern Nielsen
R.I.D.E. Dean Rohrs with Vern
The Presidents Elect at PETS this year were treated to special private presentations at the District 5060 business meetings this year.  First there was Satya Mitra, who is the record-holder for all of Rotary world-wide at introducing new members (82 in one year in a club of 48!!).  Satya is pictured to the right side.  Also, we heard from past R.I. President Rick King as well as our own Zone 24 incoming Rotary International Director Dean Rohrs.

More than 500 District Governors Elect from every district in the world have gathered in San Diego for the annual International Assembly.  
This is the premiere training week for DGEs and our own Vern Nielsen with partner Willy Burgess have been having a great time learning and interacting with fellow DGEs to help plan the next year for Rotary.  
This is also the traditional meeting where the incoming RI President introduces their theme and outlines some of their goals for their year as leader of Rotary.  John Germ from Chattanooga Tennessee has introduced his theme title and graphic for "Rotary Serving Humanity", and he is shown at left with his spouse Judy, Vern & Willy.  Below are (LHS) the new RI theme logo, which you can now download from rotary.org, as well as Vern & Willy enjoying lunch with Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko & spouse Marga.
