Zone 25 & 26
Welcome to District 5000 Hawaii
April is Magazine Month!
Magazines – so many people think we don’t need them anymore – that everything is digital – and you can of course now get the digital version of The Rotarian. But we in Rotary are so very fortunate to have a chance each month to share stories and learn about the amazing work being done by Rotarians around the world. The Rotarian is one of the oldest continuous published magazines in the world, dating from 1911 when Paul Harris was a contributor. Now we have stories of Rescue Tubes and Rotary Days and Matt Damon and toilets and updates on polio eradication.
And every time I start to think I’ve gotten too busy all I have to do is look at President Gary’s travels and realize that the life of a District Governor in Hawaii is easy! And inspiring! And fulfilling every single day!
So grab your Rotarian Magazine and enjoy each article. And contribute your own articles and pictures on your Rotary Days activities – or any other story of significance that you think your fellow Rotarians will find interesting. And when you’ve finished reading your magazine, pass it on!
I know PDG Linda Coble has a great many stories prepared for the Honolulu Club Centennial coming up in July 2015. Maybe if you attend the events scheduled with RI President for 2015-2016 Ravi Ravindran on July 7th and July 8th you’ll find yourself in The Rotarian yourself!
Now’s the time to sign up for the District Conference May 22 - 24! Come early and stay late! Make a real vacation of it at $139 per night! We want to see you all in Waikoloa as together we
Light up Rotary!
