A few of our Rotarians were able to attend the District Conference at the Hilton Polaris in Columbus, OH. The conference was a joint effort between Districts 6690 and 6650. The theme this year was Caribbean in honor of RI President Barry Rassin. Check out some photos from the weekend!

An estimated 6 million children under the age of five die every year due to treatable and preventable causes such as malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation. Rotary helps mothers by providing them education and access to needed health services which in turn empowers these women to improve their own health and that of their children.
Rotary’s programs focus on improved access to necessary medical services (including immunizations) and trained health care professionals, reduced child/infant and maternal mortality rates, and support for studies related to maternal and child health so we can better understand what further is needed. Rotary’s goal is to provide sustainable programs that the communities feel they can take ownership of to continue into the future.
