Rotary ramps up Covid-19 vaccination efforts
by Ryan Hyland

Rotary clubs around the world are mobilizing in their communities to support the introduction and delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations. Rotary leaders are urging members to connect with their local health agencies to determine how Rotary can support COVID-19 vaccine efforts.

Rotary has decades of experience in supporting the distribution of polio vaccines as well as highlighting their power and efficacy, which is a critical reason why polio is on the brink of eradication. It’s this expertise, along with strategic partnerships and innovation, that Rotary members can tap into to protect communities from COVID-19.

Rotary District 5610 is pleased to announce a pop-up grant opportunity for local clubs.

PURPOSE OF GRANT: The purpose of this grant is to empower local clubs to retain and grow membership during and after the COVID-19 pandemic through public image campaigns, media outreach, and technology to hold meetings and facilitate outreach and engagement.

REQUIRED GRANT INFO and IDEA SESSIONFeb. 22nd from 7-8 p.m. CST. Register here:  *Please make sure at least one club member is registered and will attend the session before you submit your club's proposal. More than one member may attend. A recording of the session will be emailed afterwards that attendees may share with other club members who weren't able to attend.

FINAL PROPOSAL DUE DATE: March 8, 2021 using this form

Request for Raffle Prize & Club Contact

As of January 26 all Clubs have been notified regarding the Rotary Raffle and asked to provide a donation and a club point of contact. At this point in time, we would like to thank the nine Rotary Clubs who have already responded with their donations and contact information. Those clubs are: Yankton, Scotland, Downtown Sioux Falls, Rock Valley, Rapid City, Custer, Centerville, Brookings, and Canton.  To be able to pull together a flyer listing the prizes and develop the raffle ticket stubs, we ask the remaining clubs to contact Raffle District Chair Rich Burns with their donations and club raffle chair contacts by February 18. Our goal is to have a flyer available to all of the clubs listing the donations and further information regarding the raffle event before the ticket sales begin on March 11. Tickets sales will last a little over 4 weeks from March 11 until April 15. 

Thanks in advance for the information and your role in helping to make the District Rotary Foundation Raffle a reality.
