May 15th is the District Conference in Victoria. We had such a great time there last year. I hope many of you will plan to attend. It’s super fun to sit together, do activities together and meet friends as well as learn more about Rotary. There are Membership classes, looking forward to your Presidential year, Secretary and Treasurer classes, and so much more. Some of you may know, that Rotary teamed up with Toastmasters so learning to speak classes, is awesome way to your leadership goals.

June 6-10 Rotary International Convention will be in beautiful Honolulu, HI. That’s why I thought we should have our themed breakfast in Hawaiian attire. Plan early to attend International invention. You save money by signing up early. If you haven’t been before, this is perfect opportunity to attend.

Just a side note, when you volunteer, when you sign in, right next to your name, would you please write the numbers of hours you volunteered for the week. Anything Rotary, anything for the schools, anything actually.

Enjoy rest of your weekend.
