Welcome to Rotary District 5190



Rotary District 5190 is one of the largest districts in the world, covering over 96,000 miles in area! We are so large and far apart that we are divided into 13 geographic areas. By working together in their respective areas our clubs are able to give back to their local communities stronger than would be possible for a single club. We do great things in our communities and the world. We welcome you to visit with us and hopefully consider joining us in "Doing Good In The World".
 

DISTRICT GOVERNOR`S MONTHLY MESSAGE

From The Back of The Bike. . . 


February is “Peace and Conflict Resolution” month on the Rotary calendar. Watching our “leaders” in Washington it is readily apparent that Rotary’s focus on Peace and Conflict Resolution is as timely as it has ever been. We can promote the focus of the month in a variety of ways in our communities. Consider Organizing 'MUNA' (Modal United Nations Assembly) at College Level; Engaging in reconciliation of broken families, restoring relationships; helping how people can live in peace with their families and their neighbors; or assisting young single mothers who are victims of sexually abused through training them with self-help projects. e.g. Opening small business that may help them with their children. Our District Community and Foundation committees are on the back of your bike ready to assist you with ideas and implementation.

We began our Mid-Year visits meeting with the Area 8 Clubs on January 30th and Area 8 & 9’s Foundation Dinner the 31st. We will be in Areas 2, 4, and 7 during February. 

DGE Roberta Pickett spent a week in San Diego with all of the DGE’s from around the world in January. She is now commencing the 2020/2021 Journey with Pre-Pets with District 5190 PEs February 1 and then they are all off to PETS in early March.

Elsewhere in this newsletter is more information about RALLYE. We look forward to seeing you at the Nugget! Our efforts have been focused on reducing travel and the number of Rotary weekends without reducing the quality or impact. The learning sessions are filled with information and the events are packed with fun.  Register on our District website.
