We Have An Exciting District Conference Planned

Friday, June 25

Be one of 12 clubs to sponsor a ShelterBox Tent Kit for $1,200 and have the privilege of having the Tent Kit delivered to a home of your choice for approx. a week including the Friday sleepover/party – perhaps this takes place at the home of your deserving Club President as a thank you for their service this year or someone else in your club to host a fun, outdoor celebration for all club members and Rotarians in your area!
  • We will connect on a Zoom call in the evening with all parties across the District!!  Act quickly, several clubs have already expressed interest in sponsoring a Tent Kit (3 tents have been sponsored in just 3 days)!!!  Contact Debbie Morgan (debbiem@rogers.com) to secure your Tent Kit now!  Fun in the name of providing shelter for those in crisis!
Saturday, June 26, 9-noon - the Zoom portion of the weekend.  With the help of technology, we will have an awesome program:
  • Superhero Evan Burrell joining us from Australia
  • 2021-21 Rotary International VP and our PDG Val Wafer
  • Honouring Indigenous People + Environmental Program
  • Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup Highlights
  • Celebration of D7070 Heroes and Champions
Saturday, June 26, 1-4 pm. Community Engagement - We are encouraging each club to get out into the community in the afternoon and do a hands-on activity - paint an outdoor fence for a local women’s shelter, plant a flower bed at a senior’s centre, package food for a food bank or Kids Against Hunger, clean up a neighbour’s yard, assembly hygiene kits for young women in the DR, host a community outside BBQ, etc.! 
To encourage participation, the District will offer $500 to the first 30 clubs to submit a request to Helen Lackey (helenlackeyrotary@gmail.com). Your request will need to describe your hands-on initiative and the purpose of the funds (for the event or perhaps a pizza lunch for the crew), commit to having 10 people at both the morning Zoom call and at the hands-on activity (if need be, perhaps collaborate with another club to make up the 10), commit to submitting videos and/or pics to social media during the day and including #rotary7070 and @rotarydistrict7070 in your posts.
Registration for the Conference will be a nominal $10 registration fee – all going to the Rotary Foundation. Registration will be up on the District website by March 15, 2021

This is going to be an awesome Conference!!

We are now approximately 450 registrants for the exciting ‘NOT TO BE MISSED’ HOPIN online portion of the weekend.  Join between 8:30-9:00 a.m. to see a video of District 7070 Heroes and Champions highlighting the great work of clubs during the year! See how many you know.
