District & Club News
Don and I have very much enjoyed attending a number of our Rotary Foundation’s Birthday Celebrations throughout the District.  The passion, creativity and dedication of our Rotarians continues to delight as we attend just as many functions as our schedule will allow.
 
The theme for April in the Rotary Calendar is Maternal and Child Health.  This would seem a very easy theme.  Mothers everywhere basically want the same things for their children: That is good health, sufficient food, and education.  In some parts of our world this is relatively easy but in the developing world today many challenges exist.
 
Pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of death and disability for women in developing countries (WHO).
 
Nearly 27,000 children under five die every day from largely preventable diseases and conditions.

District 5020 Literacy Chair, Judy Henderson (judy@hendersonlaw.net), encourages all District 5020 clubs to create programs for supporting literacy. This year’s EARLY DEADLINE for the esteemed District 5020 Literacy Award is only eight weeks away:
