ATO Training
We are having ATO Training Webinars starting in July. We will have our specialists present
a topic, share a PowerPoint, and demonstrate the presentation, suggest other resources you
might want to review, and answer questions.  I will send out the topic list once I met with
my committee members.  This process should equip you to do training in your area clubs.

DGE Gerald has made growing our PHS a priority. You need to order enough of the PHS

I am currently forming a committee from people throughout the district to assist me in

"Hands-on" District 5790 Global Service Project in Guatemala
An Exciting Opportunity to Serve
District Governor Elect Gerald Robinson and a small committee of District 5790 Rotary members has been researching a fantastic opportunity for approximately 150 of us to do a "hands-on" global service project next June (2019). Below is some information put together by that team to share with all of our members. We have a lot more work to do finalizing the project needs, identifying project costs and developing a budget. Once done we will be seeking grant funding from all of the district clubs that are partnering financially and physically, District 5790 District Designated Funds and The Rotary Foundation. Our goal is to have all the pieces in place so that we can start work June 23, 2019.
