Rotary International Conference in Atlanta, GA ~ June 10-14, 2017 Register now at www.riconvention.org
“We have chartered a bus to take 36 or more Rotarians from District 5610 to the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta next June,” announced District Governor Ed Jacobson. The Rotary Atlanta Convention planners have at last assigned our group a hotel: The Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead. Rotary will provide shuttle service from all convention hotels to the convention site.
    In planning the trip we believed we had projected a cost high enough to cover any of the Atlanta hotels that were listed on the Rotary website. However, Buckhead is an upscale area of Atlanta, and the cost of the Ritz-Carlton is higher than our estimate. This means that we have to raise the price of the trip by $100 ($20 per Atlanta night) per person for double occupancy and $200 ($40 per Atlanta night) per person for single occupancy. Thus the double occupancy price is now $2,027.00, and the single occupancy price is $3,156.00. The reservation fee remains $500 for double occupancy and $750 for single occupancy.
    Please plan to get your deposit to Brookings by October 1.  After that date we will be seeking Rotarians from other Districts to fill up the bus.  At last count we were looking for six more couples to make the trip a GO!  Final deadline for deposits is November 15.

     A number of Rotarians and clubs in our District already support the School for St. Jude in Tanzania. We have had personal visits to our District from Gemma, who started the school. If you do support, thank you!
 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!!
