Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in over 35,000 clubs worldwide, divided into 536 Districts. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
Rotarians may register for course I, which will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, August 26 at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Pierre. Registration is limited to ten participants.
Rotarians who have previously completed course I may fulfill the requirements of the program by completing course II, which will also begin at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, August 26. Registration is limited to ten participants.
A one-time reduced course fee of $20 will be charged for those attending an RLI course during the conference. Clubs will be billed for the course fee of registrants from respective clubs, which must be paid prior to the beginning of the course. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come basis, however, additional registrations beyond the ten maximum for each course will be placed in a back-up position in the event of a cancellation.
Registrations may be made on the District website by clicking on the event listing, and must be made prior to August 15. Rotarians attending the conference who live a significant distance from where courses are generally offered are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
Please contact me with any questions. —Larry Lyngstad, RLI District Coordinator
Monday's $50,000 donation to the Arc of Dreams marks Rotary as one of the largest contributors to this iconic stainless steel structure that will be spanning the Big Sioux River downtown. SculptureWalk Sioux Falls Arc of Dreams project is a privately funded sculpture slated for downtown Sioux Falls.
The idea was founded around Valentines Day. A perfect match with Rotary Has Heart. New member, Margaret Grimm is manager of the Senior Golden Living Center, Member Janet Roehrich is the owner of Roetell Senior Living Center, and Gayle Wookey is owner/manager of the Wookey Assisted Living Center. All three of these Rotarians stepped up to making arrangements in their Centers for the event.
Linda is available to give a presentation about this project anytime, contact her at Linda4Rotary@me.com.
If your club would like to provide support, but do not have the resources for the full donation, here is a great option. Our District sent $1320 in May to St. Jude for this year. We are on our way to making a difference in our world by changing the future for one very poor, bright child in Arusha, Tanzania and helping in the classroom of a very dedicated teacher. Together we are all making our world a better place!!
