 Rotary International President Elect Ron Burton Challenges District 5790 

During a recent District 5790 Leadership Training meeting RI President Elect  Ron Burton challenged all of us to do more to support the Rotary Foundation. "There is no question the Rotary Foundation does great work with the funds we Rotarians & others have given. We can do even more says Ron Burton. Presently, only 28% of the Rotarian membership is donating to the foundation. Why? According to Ron Burton we simply don't ask.

RI President Elect Ron Burton 

The 268 Rotarian's that were able to obtain tickets for last Saturday's Foundation Banquet had a wonderful time. We had the opportunity to hear an inspiring talk by Ron Burton, Rotary International President Elect. This Norman Oklahoma native "talked Texan" as he shared his vision for Rotary and the Foundation and challenged all of us to "get our ask in gear" and ask Rotarian's to participate in the foundation. He invites all to "Engage Rotary, Change Lives"

District 5790 Conference Sponsorship Opportunities
We are providing an incentive for Clubs, Rotarians and Businesses to sponsor this year’s District Conference. For every dollar of sponsorship given we will provide two (2) PHF Points to the Rotary account of the sponsor, if they are a Rotarian, or to the PHF account of a designated Rotarian or Non-Rotarian as decided by the Sponsor

This is a great way 2012-2013 Presidents to increase your Club’s PHF during your Presidency. Take a look at your Club’s contributions and see who is 500 points or dollars from receiving the next level PHF.  Have them sponsor the District Conference for $250 and that will get them to their next level. This is also an excellent way to get your Club to be a 100% PHF Club.

Cultivating Justice, Non Violence and Well Being 

Rotary District 5790 held it's 1st Annual Peace Symposium Saturday, December 1st at the Tarrant County Community College - Trinity River Campus.

Throughout the world and right here in our own neighborhoods Rotarians provide a variety of humanitarian services. These acts of kindness actually impact world peace. Rotarians throughout our district heard stimulating discussions connecting efforts to address critical issues of the day to the goal of building sustainable peace.  

Several organizations provide humanitarian assistance locally and throughout the world who will had displays of their projects. Clubs throughout our district used the opportunity to  consider how they can partner with these organizations.
