This is a fellowship gathering of over 30 Rotarian women from the six clubs in Area 9 at a wine bar in Wenatchee on a Tuesday night. They plan on doing more of these multi-club events as an opportunity for networking, fellowship, and as a place to bring prospective members.
PDG Peter Erickson is our Rotary Foundation Chair and would like District 5060 to consider buying these Hippo Rollers for $150. Women can now push a lot more water than carrying.  Pete is encouraging all clubs to donate $150 USD to purchase these amazing devices even though World Water Day (March 22, 2018) has passed.   They can be purchased from the District 5060 Roll-a-Hippo Initiative.  
The Hippo Roller 5060 Project started Sept 1 2018 and will end July 1 2019. So far we have collected 4000 USD from 4 Clubs in the District. Our goal is to have 100% participation by July 2019.  We have applied for the District grant and hope we can reach our 10,000 USD goal by July.  See updated info sheet here.
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).

DISTRICT GOVERNOR 2018-2019

Greetings from Sherry and Jim Chamberlain!

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Jim and I look forward to meeting as many Rotarians as possible this coming year.
We will be visiting every Rotary Club in this district and later on will try and meet the Rotaract and Interact Clubs.
A little bit about ourselves.  We reside in Kamloops BC Canada since 1998.   We are both from Ontario originally however did not meet until we were living in the Vancouver BC area, and we have no children.   
We love to travel, golf, ride our motorcycle, enjoy walks and learning about new cities and cultures.   We also used to be avid curlers in the winter but now try and get to Arizona in December and January where we enjoy friends and more golf.  Jim is now retired after 31 years with Canada Post and I still work for Chubb Fire & Security as a commercial account manager for the security business in this area.   See you in your City soon!
Sherry.
