Dear Club and District Leaders,

Join us Thursday, 29 April, at 10:00 am Mountain Daylight Time (UTC-6) for the fourth webinar in our accountability and inclusion series, Building Strong Inter-Generational Relationships
Rotary District 5470
As District 5470, we strive to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. Our district  believes in diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we think, say, or do.  We celebrate  the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
Here is a link to a hard copy of this statement:
And our Friday program on April 2 with Danielle Summerville and Alexis Knox-Miller, was about the "Journey Toward Equity."  Here is the link to that 24-minute YouTube recording of their program:

Dear Rotarians,

Have you ever looked at someone's handwriting and thought they probably slept through penmanship class? When I was first writing my alphabet, the teacher would smack the top of my hand whenever she walked past my desk to remind me that I held my pen wrong. According to smack-y lady, I held it with my pointer finger and wrapped my thumb in some type of longhand gymnastics but I was supposed to hold it with my thumb and pointer finger, equally supporting the pen tip as evidenced below.


Miss Bench also said I squeezed the pen too hard. She was right about that part. My hand cramps quickly when I write if I don't consciously loosen my grip.
