DISTRICT 5750 NEWS

Happy Spring!
 
This year seems to be flying by, but I am ready for warmer weather and getting out of the house more with the family! It's an exciting time of year in the Rotary world as we prepare the incoming presidents for their new roles, which will started this past weekend at PETS. Our incoming District Governor - Matt Tipton, has been busy preparing for the year, and I'm excited to have his leadership guide us through our new normal.
 
While I have just over three months left in my role, I'm loving the engagement with the clubs and can't wait to spend more time with each of you. Speaking of which, I wanted to officially announce that our annual district conference, aka "celebration," will be on Thursday, June 17th at 6 pm. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us. This event will be a celebration of the clubs and will be an excellent opportunity to connect with others across our district virtually of course! I will be sending a request to the club presidents ahead of this meeting to gather information to share.

Don't forget that March is water and sanitation month at Rotary. There are 2.5 billion people who lack access to improved sanitation and 748 million people who don't have clean drinking water. Nearly 1400 children die each day from diseases caused by lack of sanitation and unsafe water. When people have access to clean water, they live healthier and more productive lives. In April, our focus is maternal and child health. As Rotarians making a difference in these areas is certainly something that we can be proud of doing.

Thanks,
 
Angela Rickman
