The Rotary District 5470 Annual Conference was held on October 11 through October 13 at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort. Mr David Wood our District 5470 District Governor presided over the event.  Over 140 district members and family enjoyed many events and superb speakers giving Rotary International information and motivational enthusiasm to the participants.
 
To start the convention there was a District wide service project turning used dog and cat food bags into shopping bags to help replace the one use plastic bags used in the market place today.  These bags will be given away to shoppers in many of the stores in Chaffee County.  Over 1000 used bags were collected by Rotarians to complete this project. Rotary members around the district helped us produce these bags and they all did a fantastic job.
 
Both Friday and Saturday had family time planned in the schedule and many opportunities were taken advantage of throughout the county from time at the hot springs pools to high country adventures through guided jeep tours.
 
Mt. Princeton proved to be a wonderful venue to hold this conference and it was a tremendous success.
