District News
Giving Tuesday happens once a year, but your gift of Rotary will make a difference for a lifetime. This Giving Tuesday, consider making a special gift to The Rotary Foundation and together we can continue Doing Good in the World. 
We’re excited to gather again in-person so we can connect, share ideas, and strengthen our relationships in an atmosphere of friendship and learning. The 2022 Rotary International Convention in Houston, Texas, USA, offers us that opportunity – and we remain optimistic that we’ll be there together 4-8 June 2022.   

The deadline to register at the reduced rate is fast approaching. You have until 15 December 2021, so sign up and pay today to take advantage of significant savings. You’ll have the chance to cancel for a full refund until 30 April 2022, minus a $50 per person administration fee. 
Get ready to have some fun.  Do you love cruising?  District 5340 recently announced an opportunity for Rotarians to  cruise together and support the Rotary Foundation all in one.
Enjoy a beautiful and fun-filled cruise vacation and see the Gems of Southeast Europe with other Rotarians while improving lives. Your participation in this cruise will result in donations to The Rotary Foundation. The cruise sails April 2-9, 2023,
This is a river boat cruise on the Danube through portions of Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria & Romania. Visits to Austria and Turkey are also available by adding the pre and/or post-cruise extensions. 
For a short period of time you can make your $400 deposit by December 31, 2021 to save $750!  To obtain the brochure, click on the page links provided here:   Page one; Page two.
Most of us are familiar with the reference to the "Twelve Days of Christmas" but did you know about the Twelve Months of Rotary?  Rotary has identified a theme for each month.  The monthly themes are meant to highlight the wide range of Rotary's good work and give clubs some suggestions, timing and guidance for their programs and activities.  Here is the list.  You can also download a PDF with samples of the graphics used for each Rotary month.

  • March - Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

As you likely know, our community is expecting a large number of Afghan refugees in the next few months.  Many Rotary clubs have been asking how they can help.  D5340 Rotarians, supported by District Governor Dan Gensler, can provide assistance in many ways through  the International Rescue Committee (IRC),  a federally designated resettlement agency in San Diego that is in need of some assistance.

Rotary is where individuals come together to change the world for good.
With over 1.2 million members across the globe, Rotary is the place where business and civic leaders come to share ideas, connect, and get inspired. 
Rotary members are people of action, dedicated to sustainable, impactful change in the communities in which they live and work.
