District & Club News
As Don and I travel around our District, we see excellent examples of “Rotary Serving Humanity” in each of our clubs.  Some of our clubs are small and some are large, but all find a way to serve both their members and their community.  It has been a truly fun and rewarding experience to meet so many of you and learn about what you are doing throughout the District.
Our Conference and District Training happened last weekend and what an amazing weekend we experienced.  There were some very inspirational speakers and classes to help us learn more about almost every aspect of Rotary. I was so happy to see so many Rotarians getting acquainted with members from other clubs and learning about some of the projects that are taking place throughout our District.

“Don’t send flowers, do something for Rotary”, these are the words Rose shared with me in the months before her death. Rose passed away on the morning of May 2, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer. 

Let’s do something for Rotary!

Rose was a lifelong Rotarian, serving many roles within Rotary including the 2015-16 Governor of Rotary District 5020. She often shared her story of delivering a school bus filled with wheelchairs to a village in Mexico and said it was the day she became a “True Rotarian”. This story was retold in an article published by Lewis Talk in 2015, read it here. 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Past District Governor Rose Bowman passed away this morning after a courageous battle with cancer. Rotary District 5020 has created a gofundme account to celebrate Rose, her way, by sending a bus loaded with wheelchairs and medical supplies to a small village in Mexico. Please take a moment to read about her amazing story and help if you can:
