DG SANDY MORTENSEN'S MONTHLY MESSAGE
 
How do you connect/communicate your club’s story and events? Post the story/info on your club’s website/Facebook page, and send the link to Bev Mendel to post (office@rotary5450.org). The District Newsletter, Club Events and District Facebook pages are there to help promote your Club’s successes. Your Club’s website is the face of your club, what you do, and what you have to offer to potential members.
 
 
THE DISTRICT IS HERE FOR YOU
The Family of Rotary wants to ask every Rotary club to arm yourselves with the latest information on the danger of plastic to our environment. Let’s practice “Will it be beneficial to all concerned?” when it comes to communicating why we need to become ambassadors for our children’s future. Let us hear from you. Let’s start a dialogue!!
 
The plastic plague is upon us and we need to have some facts:
 
Water in plastic bottles – it takes 450 years for a plastic water bottle to decompose, and we throw away 1.4 billion daily.

For all of our great ShelterBox supporters, we want to start publishing updates every quarter so you know where you donations are changing lives. Thank you.
 
Responding to Flooding in Eastern Africa
 
In Ethiopia, severe flooding and conflict have forced people to leave their homes.  A ShelterBox team is deployed and working to initially support 2,000 families in the overcrowded collective centers with critical supplies to help families start rebuilding their lives.

International Literacy Day, September 8, 2018, is celebrated internationally, not just by Rotary. Literacy skills broadly includes knowledge and competencies required for employment and careers, particularly technical and vocational skills. Focusing on youth and adults within the lifelong learning framework, fast-advancing digital technology are transforming ways in which people work, live and learn, and are generating new skill demands.  Click here to view the International Literacy Day flyer, with ideas and suggestions.

ROTARY PEAK & YOUTH EXCHANGE
 
All our District 5450 inbound Youth Exchange students, their host families, and Rotarians are invited to the annual 'welcome to Colorado' easy two-hour hike on Sunday, September 9 at the Rotary Peak. We'll start from the trailhead on the west side at the top of Loveland Pass at 8:30 am, with sturdy footwear, extra clothing, and water.  All Rotarians are also invited to spend a couple of hours on any summer morning to serve as greeters at that trailhead, handing out trail maps, pins, water, and general information about hiking, Colorado, and/or Rotary. Contact Jim Brook 970-409-8995 or Rick Clark 303-880-6447 for more information.
