Paul Harris Fellows
What is a Paul Harris Fellow?
When US $1,000 is contributed to The Rotary Foundation, a request can be made for an individual to be recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow: 
That person can be a Rotarian or a member of the community who is not a Rotarian.

Bowlio is scheduled for Saturday, August 14th at Inca Lanes, 1250 West 16th Street in Yuma.  As with prior years, all net proceeds will be donated to the Rotary International Polio Plus fund.  Although I was not involved with the first Bowlio event in 2011, total net proceeds of $26,254 have been raised during the subsequent years (2013-2016, 2018 & 2019) and donated to the Polio Plus fund on behalf of all of the participating Rotary Clubs.

Bi-Weekly Updates for District 5500 Rotarians
July 9, 2021
A big shout-out to all those who worked behind the scenes for DG Hank’s Installation. Wow! All your hard work really paid off – you made it look easy.
Dear Fellow D5500 Rotarians,
Every July we celebrate the accomplishments of our member clubs over the past year and pass the gavel to new leadership. Congratulations to the 50 men and women who have rung the Rotary bell to begin their journey with 1394 members during Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta’s 2021-2022 theme “Serve to Change Lives.”

CALL FOR CLUB NOMINATIONS FOR DISTRICT GOVERNOR CANDIDATES

Make a difference in your Rotary District!

Nominations of candidates to serve as District Governor in 2024-2025 are due to District Governor Hank Huisking on or before July 31, 2021. Any club may nominate a candidate who is a member of that club or a member of another club (with the other club’s concurrence). Candidate interviews will be held during the month of September 2021.

DG Hank's Message on district Grants
 
The Rotary Days of Service championed by RI President Shekhar Mehta is most important and aligns with my theme asking clubs to Connect-Partner and Serve. There will be clubs who have pet projects in their community, but this satisfies the desire for larger, more sustainable projects, in collaboration with other clubs or organizations outside Rotary.
 
The Balloon Festival Burrito Booth signup invitation will be emailed to you soon, follow the instructions to sign up for 1 or more of the 4 shifts (2 per day).  NEEDED are the setup and sell shifts both days (11/19 & 11/20)
 
You can also click on events button at the top of the website and sign up there, sign in and go to member area, then go to volunteers.
 
Thank you in advance, this is an important way we raise discretionary funds to support local community needs.
 
We are a FUN SPIRITED CLUB. If you are looking for an opportunity to give back to our community and our world, we offer a non-political, non-religious atmosphere with like minded, dedicated people who share passion for community service and friendships. We are always looking for fine new members to inspire others and - DROP BY AND JOIN US!
 
Visit us Wednesday mornings at 6:45 - 7:45 at IHOP on E 16th Street, Yuma, AZ  85365.
 
Mail us at PO Box 6206 Yuma, AZ  85366
