Group Cultural Exchange with District 9400 in Africa

District 5110 is proud to announce a Group Cultural Exchange (formerly Group Study Exchange) with District 9400 in Africa. A team of 3-4 team members plus a team leader will travel to District 9400 in April 2021, just in time to celebrate their district’s 100th Anniversary. Both teams will return to Oregon together and attend our District Conference. Each team will spend 3-4 weeks abroad and each team member’s cost is $700 to help defray training and materials expenses. The team will meet approximately five (5) times prior to departure. Application materials and fact sheets are available on DACdb under District Files, Group Study exchange.

The Giving Plate Food Drive Results

Thanks to the club members who participated in our very successful food drive benefiting "The Giving Plate". In all, club members donated approximately 1400 lbs of food, plus a cash donation. I say approximate because one food donation arrived after we had shut down and stopped weighing.  

Our club's contribution will help feed multiple hungry families with young children in our community. It is wonderful to see Rotary in action and experience the Rotary motto of "service above self".

Thanks for giving. Thanks for your service.
