2014-15 District Governor
For those who would like to provide support, but do not have the resources for the full donation, here is a new option being proposed.
PROPOSAL: To best serve clubs who want to contribute to the School of St. Jude project, a separate district account would be opened so that all interested clubs can donate to The School of St. Jude by sending their checks to this account. It would only take $100 to $200 (more would be great if the club wishes) to get involved and when the total reaches $1500 we would send it to The School of St. Jude to sponsor a child and a teacher. This would be an annual commitment as the child needs to be sponsored every year. The sponsorship for the student includes uniforms, shoes, food, clean water, transportation to and from school, school supplies and a high quality education. In the upper grades it also includes boarding as fourth grade through eighth board at the school during the week and from ninth grade on the students board at the school for the whole semester. For the teacher it provides classroom supplies.
REASONS FOR PROPOSAL: The School of St. Jude needs sponsors for the children that they are educating. Many clubs in our district could use an easy way to get involved in an international project and this project will give them lots of feedback from the school and the student to truly show them that they are helping to change the world. The students write letters to their sponsors twice a year and their grade reports are also sent to the sponsor. Also if the student wins an award the sponsor is sent a picture of the student and a description of the award.

Let's Get Integrated! More clubs have integrated, and found the value of joining the District website for both Club leaders and members alike! The Clubrunner RI Integration powerpoint explains the integration process in several steps, starting with www.rotary.org and ending with the District website at www.rotary5610.org. You do not need to complete the Club steps if you do not have a Clubrunner website for your club. We have ONLY TWO clubs still not integrated: Huron, and South Sioux City. Please complete the process by calling Linda Peterson for assistance. Let's reach the goal of 100% of our District clubs participation! The benefits are many, including ease of membership management and communications tools.
This website is for the use of the membership of D5610 clubs, district leadership and the public. Please browse the information, suggest additions and changes, or ask questions in "Contact Us." If you login as a member of Rotary, you can access additional club and district management information.
