Welcome to the Rotary District 5060 Home Page!

District Governor 2017-18 Bill Jenkin and Lisa

District 5060 is an international district of 57 clubs and approximately 2,760 Rotarians in central Washington, USA, and south central British Columbia, Canada.  It covers a distance of 550 miles (890 km) from Clearwater, BC, in the north to Prosser, WA, in the south. Principal cities are Yakima and Wenatchee in Washington, and Kelowna and Kamloops in British Columbia. 
  
The area enjoys a four-season climate, with generally warm summers and mild winters. Agriculture, agribusiness, recreation, and tourism are the primary economic activities, along with a rapidly growing wine industry.

At the annual Fall Training Assembly in Osoyoos,  Richard DeRock was elected District Governor Designate (DGD) by the district nominating committee.  Shown here with wife (and Rotarian) Robin, Richard is president of Wenatchee North Rotary, a past member of the Wenatchee (Downtown) club.  and was a long-term member and chair of our very successful Rotary Youth Exchange Committee.  He is CEO and General Manager of Link Transit System of Wenatchee.

The position of DGD in our district is official when declared to the General Secretary of Rotary International which will immediately follow a 15-day challenge period (that ends 6 November 2017).
 
Congratulations Richard, and welcome to the District 5060 leadership team!

In Kelowna there is a magnificent place for peace and healing, where cancer patients stay while undergoing radiation and other treatments.  It is the Rotary Lodge in Kelowna.  

A recent patient/resident posted a touching story of her experience there on a local Rotary website.  

She writes .....

Here is another "Practical Matters" Membership-growth idea from Wenatchee North Rotary Club...
 
Generate a public image event in your local community!
Find an opportunity to raise awareness about Rotary and how Rotary supports your local community.
 
An idea that could be implemented in your community:
Saturday, September 17, 2016  - The 3 Wenatchee Rotary clubs and the East Wenatchee Rotary club manned the concession  stands at the high school football game between Wenatchee High School and the Mt. Boucherie High School from Kelowna, British Columbia. Over 30 Rotarians and their spouses volunteered to man both concession stands so that the high school students who normally run the concession stands could watch their fellow students play the entire football game. 
 
Members of the Cashmere Rotary were proud to provide a scoreboard for the Cashmere Bulldog football field.  Funds were contributed from the Cashmere Booster Club and the Cashmere Rotary Club with a matching grant from the District.  What a great way to start the football season with a contribution to the community and great public image for Rotary.
 
Pictured underneath the old scoreboard are Bruce Cheadle, Randy and Donna Smith, Rick Shorett and John Killian.
