Why: Learn from Others, Share Your Knowledge and Develop Future Leaders

Need another reason – PANCAKES!

Once again, The Rotary Club of Albuquerque Sandia will host their Pancake Breakfast from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at a nearby location before the Assembly convenes.  This year’s venue is The Rock at Noonday located at 2400 2nd St NW, one block south of Menaul.  The Rock is just five minutes from the Crowne Plaza, so get your pancakes while they’re hot and then amble on over to the District Assembly with a full tummy.

This is an excellent opportunity for Rotarians to see The Rock and support two deserving organizations.  There will be tours available to explore the facility and hear about the services The Rock offers a sometimes-underserved community.

Ticket prices are $9.00 each and will be available at the door or through Sandia Rotary folks who hope to visit all Albuquerque metro area clubs in person. Any questions, please reach out to Gail at 505-350-2704 or Mrsmandel@hotmail.com

YOU mean everything to Rotary! Consider volunteering to serve as District Governor....
As this year draws to a close and we celebrate the holidays, please take a moment to reflect on just how much Rotary means to you and your community.  As much as Rotary may mean to you and your community, YOU mean everything to Rotary!  YOU are what makes Rotary productive and strong.  BUT, Rotary needs your help!  Please stop and take a second moment to think of how you can help YOUR Rotary.
We are in constant need of capable and dedicated individuals to lead us into the future.  Both at club and district level we need people to step forward and lend their talents.
If you have already served as your club’s President, please seriously consider volunteering to serve as District Governor.  The pay is FANTASTIC – not in money, but in the experience.  You will never have a more rewarding Rotary experience.  The chance to visit clubs and meet your fellow District 5520 Rotarians will be a life-changing experience and a rich reward.
We ask that you please step forward and accept the challenge.  If you cannot accept the challenge at the present time, stop and think of those past club presidents you know who would make great District Governors, and nominate them.
Nominations are now open and should be sent to PDG Dave Anderson at danderson165@comcast.net.  Even a call to Dave at (505) 350-6661 will get the process started.
NOTE: Monday, February 19, 2018, is the deadline for Clubs to submit nominations for District Governor.

Sarah Jones, (RC of Albuquerque Del Norte) District Chair of the Four-Way Test Essay Contest, is pleased to announce that, "It’s that time of year again to get the contest information out into your community middle-schools.

"After reviewing past essay contest policies, implementing more student-friendly guidelines will not only enrich the student’s experience, but also improve the quality of the essays.  The time limit to complete the essay excludes some students that grasp the concept, but may not communicate their ideas effectively under this restriction.  Therefore, there is no time limit.  I am hopeful teachers and students will deep-dive into the Four-Way Test and, therefore, encourage research.

"Included in this year’s essay information packets are district goals to encourage a more vibrant, rooted Four-Way Test Essay Contest experience for our middle-school communities.  Please pass this information on to your Club's Four-Way Test committee chair and feel free to contact me if you are interested in helping during the long-term goal planning process."
