District Stories

By Bob Durston and John Borst
District 5550 is very fortunate to have dedicated Rotarians donating annually to the Annual Programs Fund so that clubs can carry out International Projects each year.  Global Grants are larger International projects that have a budget of more than $30,000.00 USD. 
Phase 4 of the San Miguelito School in Guatemala was built through District 5550’s Ripple Effect Program with funding from the Rotary Clubs of Kenora and Dundas Valley Sunrise.

Ian H.S. Riseley, of the Rotary Club of Sandringham, Victoria, Australia, is the selection of the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International in 2017-18. He will become the president-nominee on 1 October if no other candidates challenge him.
After over eighteen months of work, it seems only fitting that Dryden Rotary’s participation in a Basic Education and Literacy Global Grant Request be submitted  to Rotary International during March which in Rotary is “Literacy” month.
District 5550 World Peace Partners is pleased to announce the next building block towards peace, compassion and “service above self” amongst our youth, the ‘Rotary Adventures in Human Rights’ program.

Each year, within Rotary, February 23rd is designated as Rotary Day. It celebrates the date on which the first Rotary meeting took place.  It is also a good time to review the impact that Rotary is having in the World. 
District 5550’s major literacy initiative is the Ripple Effect program.  This inspirational video called The Ripple is a good example of the power of a “Ripple” effect.

Of the things we say or do
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOOD Will and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICAL to all concerned?


It has been the way of Rotary to focus thought upon matters in which Members are in agreement, rather than upon matters in which they are in disagreement.
