To encourage Rotarians and clubs to focus on Rotary’s core value of integrity, and to honor the memory of the late Boone Rotarian, PDG 1954-55 Judge Paul E. Hellwege, District 6000 is asking clubs to nominate one member for the sixth annual District 6000 “Paul E. Hellwege Guardian of Integrity” awards. A nomination form is at this link and the deadline is Jan. 31, 2019. The nominations will be submitted to the District 6000 Vocational Service Committee, and nominees will be recognized at the District Conference.

If your club plans to apply for a COMMUNITY SERVICE or GLOBAL GRANT  for 2019-20, someone from your club must attend a GRANT MANAGEMENT SEMINAR (GMS) and it's especially important that the main contacts on a proposed grant are strongly encouraged to attend.  Registration is needed to ensure enough materials are prepared and for food. Registration deadline is 2 days before each seminar, for details and to register click the blue text of the location.
