WENATCHEE AREA CLUBS PLAN PEACE POLE/GARDEN
FUND-RAISER HAS BEGUN
 
There are more than 250,000 Peace Poles in nearly every country in the world, dedicated as monuments to peace. The Peace Pole project at Wenatchee Rotary Park, has the Rotary Club of Wenatchee, Confluence Rotary and Sunrise Rotary partnering to construct the project in the summer of 2022. We have several grants already approved, and we are excited to share how you can contribute to this lasting testament to peace. 
The District 5060 Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) program is back!  The weekend of April 1-3 we held the annual “Outbound Training” where the students and their parents assembled in Penticton B.C. with the members of our RYE Committee under the direction of Chair Martha Kennedy of the R/C Kelowna Sunrise. They were a positive and energetic group, and the excitement with being able to return to some of the best programs of our pre-pandemic days was clear!  Make sure you encourage your club to participate in any way that you can with the program!

Andrea Inwards, Rotarian and past Assistant Governor in Merritt is leading a joint effort by our District and our friends in District 5040.  Below is her message of early July.   
 
"As you aware, the village of Lytton was devastated by wildfire earlier this week, leaving many people homeless and taking refuge in nearby cities. Though Lytton is not in District 5060, the evacuees are being housed in District 5060 club towns....(read more below) ...
District Governor's Message, 2020-2022 (Updated)
Hello Rotarians and friends of Rotary District 5060. 
I write this message from a unique and extremely privileged vantage point as both the immediate past Governor and the incoming Governor. Having served as the District Governor for the past year and as part of our leadership team for the past four years, I am thoroughly aware that the Covid-19 pandemic and its restrictions, have affected nearly every aspect of the Rotary experience. For an organization, whose first object is the development of acquaintance as an avenue of service, being prohibited from meeting in person has tested our organization in many significant ways.
 
Rotarians in our District have stepped up in these difficult times and have done amazing things. Rotarians, perhaps reluctantly, embraced Zoom and electronic payments as a means of maintaining Rotary contacts and projects. The creativity and adaptability our members showed in implementing this cutting-edge technology, is a testament to our commitment to our Rotary ideals and the potential that this technology has for us.
 
Across the District, clubs have continued to provide critically needed student scholarships, delivered innovative service projects that have improved their communities, and continued their works on vital international projects. Clubs demonstrated innovation and grit as they scrambled to redesign and replace many long time, major fund raisers. Our members and clubs exceeded our goals for donations to the Rotary Foundation and to the Polio Plus program and 41 of our 57 clubs earned the Rotary International President’s Citation for exceptional clubs. A lot of good things happened in this incredibly challenging year.  
 
As our world re-opens and our clubs resume meeting in person, Robin and I are excited to come to your clubs and meet with our amazing Rotarians and see the fruits of their incredible service projects. I am look forward to learning first-hand about your projects and issues so that we in District leadership have the best information and knowledge so that we can continue the work of improving and streamlining our District functions so that your clubs can achieve their greatest successes.
 
District leadership and I are committed to work with all of you to take the lessons of the last 16 months and combine them with the best of our traditions, to build a better Rotary experience for both our current and our future members. With the pandemic restrictions lessening, we, we intend to:
 
Restart, revise and improve.

After graduation, Richard went to work as a General Manager for a private transit contracting company, running transit systems in Union City, Eastern Contra Costa County, East San Diego County and Orange County California.  While he was managing the Orange County Transit service, he met his wife, Robin when she came to his office to complain about one of his drivers.  After his Orange County experience, Richard went to work for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority as a regional planner with responsibilities for specialized transportation (elderly and disabled transit) and air quality programs (alternative fuels projects).  During his time at the LAMTA, Richard married Robin and they had both of their two children, Alicia and Alex.

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.
