Welcome to Rotary District 5130
From District Governor Erin Dunn …
Happy September District 5130 Rotarians!
With students returning to school this month, it’s the perfect time of year to celebrate BASIC EDUCATION & LITERACY in Rotary.
There are many wonderful programs that our 47 clubs have created bringing Education and Literacy into the forefront. Please share your projects on your club Facebook page and we will share them on the District page. (If you haven’t “liked” the District 5130 Facebook page yet, please take a moment today and like it!).
I have included one of my favorite quotes in my club visits that captures the significance of our work with Education and Literacy. It’s from Gene White of the Global Child Nutrition Foundation: “Peace begins when the hungry are fed, the future beings when they are educated.”
Let’s keep Education and Literacy at the top of our thoughts this month. Plan a club program highlighting this area of focus, or sign up to volunteer and read to a youngster. Every action counts!
District Governor, D5130
