Whiteclay, Nebraska borders the Pine Ridge Reservation of South Dakota and has a population of about 12. It is less than two miles from the village of Pine Ridge, SD, population 3,308. It is the largest Native American city in South Dakota and is the headquarters of the Oglala Sioux Tribal Nation. 

Rotary District 5610 project members Ina Winter (Hot Springs), Linda Peterson and Tom Katus (Rapid City Rushmore) worked with building manager Jon Ruybalid to secure a $57,575 global grant from The Rotary Foundation (TRF). The grant, approved in August 2020, will support the artists and craftspeople who will be making use of the new makerspace in Whiteclay, NE.  

This project supports the Rotary Community Economic Development Area of Focus. Goals of the project—as defined by the Rotary Foundation—support: building the capacity of local leaders, organizations, and networks to support economic development in poor communities; developing opportunities for productive work and improving access to sustainable livelihoods; empowering marginalized communities by providing access to economic opportunities and services; and building the capacity of entrepreneurs, social businesses, and locally supported business innovators. District 5610 project committee members are the grant administrators developing actions to serve these beneficiaries.

Polio Plus

"WORLD POLIO DAY IS OCTOBER 24 THIS YEAR AND IT IS MY HOPE THAT EVERY CLUB'S PRESIDENT IN DISTRICT 5610 WILL SHOW  AND READ "5 REASONS WHY WE MUST ERADICATE POLIO", USING ZOOM OR MEETING IN PERSON, THEREBY  CELEBRATING THIS SPECIAL DAY."  Willis Sutliff MD, Polio Plus Chair

Rotary has made the huge commitment to continue giving $50 million a year until polio is eradicated. This shows the level of support our wonderful organization is doing for one of the noblest projects in history. The Gates Foundation has also raised the bar by committing to match every dollar Rotary raises by two dollars. District 5610 is asking every Rotarian to help with a $40 gift a year.
