This website is for the use of the membership of District 5610 clubs, district leadership and the public. You can locate club meetings and locations in the left column, and District leaders in Organization. Please browse the information, suggest additions and changes, or ask questions by reaching leaders in "Contact Us." If you login as a member of Rotary, you can access additional club and district management information.
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in over 35,000 clubs worldwide, divided into 536 Districts. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
We have a new effort to raise awareness of Rotary and publicize club events! An application for clubs to get additional funding from the District is available for download on this website, titled Rotary Awareness Campaign Application. Groups of clubs in a geographic area and media reach can band together to put dollars into a media campaign. Call me for more information. Deadline is January 15.
Public Image Citations went to Vermillion and LeMars clubs for 2015-16 publicity efforts. Thanks to these clubs and several others in the District for their excellent community awareness efforts for their clubs. Available again for the second year is the Public Image Citation Application for your club. New goals are listed, so download the file from the District website and make new efforts to publicize your club projects and events.
I have a great powerpoint on “Publicizing an Event” that I would be happy to present to your club or event committee. I also have website and social media training that will assist your club in using these digital tools. Please contact me to schedule! I will travel anywhere in the District to meet with your club.

If your club would like to provide support, but do not have the resources for the full donation, here is a great option. Our District sent $1320 in May to St. Jude for this year. We are on our way to making a difference in our world by changing the future for one very poor, bright child in Arusha, Tanzania and helping in the classroom of a very dedicated teacher. Together we are all making our world a better place!!
