ROTARY CONNECTS THE WORLD

“The first emphasis is to grow Rotary — to grow our service, to grow the impact of our projects, but most importantly, to grow our membership so that we can achieve more,” Maloney said.

 

Rotary International President Elect Mark Daniel Maloney and Gay greeting District 5060 Governor Elect Peter Schultz & Susan.  Maloney believes that connection is at the heart of the Rotary experience.

District Governor 2019-20
Greetings from Peter & Susan Schultz!
Welcome to our District 5060 Website.  As I travel the district this year I very much look forward to renewing old friendships and making new ones!  We have a tremendous opportunity in our district to "Be Inspired" as Rotary International President Barry Rassin encouraged us in 2018-2019, and to "Connect the World" as this year's President Mark Maloney would have us do!  We are strong, with a growing membership, tremendous activities and projects both locally and globally, and the positive leadership we need to Grow Rotary.
 
As we go through this year, I want us all to think about our mission to "Grow Rotary" on a personal level.  We don't need to make huge transitions in what we do, we just need to improve "a little bit".... have a bit more fun, be of service to 1 or 2 more people this year, add just a few hours of volunteer work to our agenda, or give just a few dollars more in our annual charitable budget!  We can eat this elephant, one bite at a time, but with every one of the nearly 3000 members of our district does "just a little more", we will Grow Rotary!
 
I will see you in lots of video report messages that will circulate on FaceBook (and post here in the website:  Click HERE to see the District Video Collection description).  Don't forget, Rotary in district 5060 is all about Chapter 1!!  Our core values, our 4-way test, and all of our Guiding Principles!  Enjoy your year, and please reach out to myself or any of our District leaders if you need anything.

Great story from Rotary Club of Peachland!
 
JoeAnna's House (https://www.kghfoundation.com/joeannas-house/) is an initiative by the Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) Foundation and a  couple of major private donors. The Foundation has approached Rotary clubs in the area to come on board with donations. Of particular importance was that a donation be received by May 31st because a private foundation pledged to match donations received by that date 1:1. 
Read the latest updates from DG Sherry Chamberlain (a proposal) and the KGH Foundation (Impact Report).
