District 5610 Conference is Cancelled

District 5610 Governor, Ina Winter, in consultation with the executive committee has decided to cancel the 2020 District Conference in Hot Springs. We are currently looking into ways of delivering some of the content from the conference online, so keep your eyes open for email announcements. We encourage you all to be safe and to consider what your club might do to help ease the burden of COVID-19 in your community. Finally, be sure to place the dates of the next District Conference (Nov. 6-7 in Brookings) in your calendar.
