District & Club News
Thank you, thank you, thank you to each and every Rotarian in District 5020 for helping to make our District one of the best in the world.  
Don and I have enjoyed meeting so very many of you at our DLTA that took place in Victoria in April of 2016, our District Conferences in Olympia and in Suquamish and at either the Rotary International Convention that took place in Seoul, Korea or this month in Atlanta, GA.  The warm welcome we received at your club meetings was very much appreciated.   
Our District 5020 group at the Convention in Atlanta was over 120 Rotarians and partners.  If you didn’t get a chance to attend the Convention in Atlanta, do consider Toronto Canada next June 23-27.

“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:
