Rotary District 6440 Conference
Most Rotarians have never attended a Rotary district conference. They have, not experienced one of the most enjoyable and rewarding privileges of Rotary membership. A district conference is for all club members and their spouses, not just for club officers and committee members. The purpose of a district conference is for fellowship, good fun, inspirational speakers and discussion of matters that make one's Rotary membership more meaningful. Every person who attends a district conference finds that being a Rotarian becomes even more rewarding because of the new experiences, insights and acquaintances developed at the conference. Those who attend a conference enjoy going back, year after year. Everyone of Rotary's more than 525 districts has a conference annually These meetings are considered so important that the Rotary International president selects a knowledgeable Rotarian as his personal representative to attend and address each conference. The program always includes several outstanding entertainment features, interesting discussions and inspirational programs. One of the added benefits of attending a district conference is the opportunity to become better acquainted with members of one's own club in an informal setting. Lasting friendships grow from the fellowship hour at the district conference.
 
District 6440 District Conference is May 17-20th.  
 
Mark Your Calendar!
This year's District Conference will be held at the Blue Harbor Resort and Conference Center in Sheboygan Wisconsin, May 17th-20th.  Registration is open! Visit https://rotary6440conference.weebly.com/ to secure your spot.  
Rotary and WASH(Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) Projects
Rotary and WASH(water, sanitation, and hygiene ) projects
 
Since 2009, Rotary and USAID have partnered to improve access to clean water and sanitation in developing countries, working on continuous improvement while sharing learnings with other philanthropic and humanitarian organizations.
 
In 2015, the collaboration committed $4 million each to Ghana, Uganda, and Madagascar, with each partner providing half of the funds needed. Rotary seeks to raise $200,000 for each country by 2018 as part of its $2 million per country commitment. The investment will support: WASH project design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.  Leadership and advocacy using Rotary members' expertise and resources to leverage WASH resources and initiatives.
 
The Barrington Breakfast Club and the Club Rotario Guatemala Sur have been awarded a challenge grant for a WASH in Schools (WinS) project.  Our club, along with several other Rotary clubs both in and out of our district have supported this project.  Click here for more information about this project.
