News From District 6450

  • Don't Miss The District Conference!:   This year's Conference promises something for everyone and a great experience for all.   Come for the weekend, May 5-7, (your best buy), relax and enjoy Rotary and your Rotarians as you attend interesting, exciting and FUN programs.  Such as: 
  • Golf – The Oak Brook Hills Hotel and Resort (conveniently located for everyone) has an outstanding golf course so all of the golfers among us should take advantage of this opportunity.
  • Club Pride Night – Friday, May 5 is Club Pride Night – every club in the District will "strut their stuff" by displaying to everyone all of the good things that our clubs do for our communities and our country and to  help others across the world.  And at dinner (actually at the bar beforehand) we will start to celebrate Cinco de Mayo; and, our exchange students will be there to serve our special ice cream desserts (man, it does not get any better than this).
  • Okay – Saturday – Well, in the morning we have a full alphabet of programs to help one and all about how to improve themselves as Rotarians and learn about the various offices of the Rotary Clubs, Foundation information and more – and lunch at our plenary session.
  • Stick Around – But wait, there's more!  There are a number of events in the afternoon, including our annual meeting and it's Kentucky Derby time!   Adult beverages for one and all!!
  • And There's Still More – Saturday night is the Foundation Dinner (preceded by a Paul Harris Fellow cocktail party) which will celebrate, in grand style, 100 years of our Rotary Foundation – from $26.50 to over $3 billion.  Wow.
  • And On Sunday – We'll take some time to remember and reflect on those Rotarians who we have lost this past year and then we adjourn to a great brunch and closing ceremonies.
  • Here's The Deal – While the best buy is to come for the weekend, Friday and Saturday are ala carte so you can come for one or come for both.
  • There is no reason on earth why you can't or should not join all of your Rotary friends from our great District at the celebration of Rotary and the good fellowship that we enjoy with each other. Don't delay – jump on the website (Rotary6450) and sign up now – you've been thinking about doing it anyway!
